But it was long ago and I attributed to just how Windows works. You reboot and its working again. I decided long ago to not do deep investigations.
I have an old Dell Inspiron running Windows XP Pro which I use occasionally to access programs that won't work on my primary desktop running Windows 7. Recently I thought I would play safe (because I do access the internet with it) and installed Malwarebytes on the XP computer. As soon as it did its job and I gave it the OK to delete files there was a major change to the computer. It was as if my profile disappeared. Desktop icons returned to a basic list, all my Chrome bookmarks disappeared and probably other things changed.
This didn't really bother me as it isn't my primary computer. Then a surprise. The free trial period of Malwarebytes expired, and I indicated that i didn't want to buy the upgraded version. Immediately, everything returned to as before. All the desktop icons and my bookmarks returned and whatever else that was hidden.
Anyone else with a similar experince?
