    My dad thought something was wrong with the computer when the mouse wouldn't respond (it was just the batteries) so he did a non-destructive restore of the computer. All of our documents and folders are located under c:\documents and settings\hp_administrator. Now the computer created a new profile and its located under c:\documents and settings\hp_administrator.USERNAME. How do I get the profile to load c:\documents and settings\hp_administrator?

    I think you are stuck with the new location. Copy the files to the new location and see how that goes.

    cheers, Paul

    Once you get all your files moved to the new account, you should be able to rename the account to whatever you want it to be. Once that is completed, you can delete the old account if you wish. Just be sure to move everything before hand. The new account can be set with administrator rights, etc. This should not be a big ocstacle to you.

    ... and *Copy* is a key word here! Do *not* cut and paste, and do *not* copy desktop.ini files.
