Lost profile-had to restore to an earlier time - moved by Jintan


I turned my computer on and the first thing I saw was a different desktop wallpaper (one that comes with windows XP). I then realized that my programs were lost and I couldn't even access my email.

I did a "system restore" to an earlier time and got it all back. Upon restoring I got a pop up that said that windows was unable to restore to an earlier time, but it appears as if it did restore because I got my profile back.

Could this be a bug or something I should worry about?

Many thanks,
