Hi all. I dont know if this is a virus problem or not but I need some help. I normally ignore my windows update messages that I get but I decided tonight to install updates.(windows XP). After it finished it told me to restart which I did. When it booted up I just had my desktop background and no icons so I rebooted again. It started OK but my internet settings had all changed (toolbar settings etc) and when I went to go into my email (office outlook) I had to reconfigure everything and all my old emails were wiped.Its like it just installed from scratch again. Does this normally happen with updates? Am I best to not install updates or what should I do? Is there anyway of getting all my old emails back? Thanks.
