    I did a software update when prompted, and after my computer restarted it was like I re-installed all of my software. The desktop, dock and related preferences were on default. Safari, Mail, Photoshop and Bridge deleted everything related to preferences, bookmarks, and workspaces.

    Has anyone seen this- or have any way for me to go back in time to before this horrible thing happened.

    I've never heard of anything like this. If only there was some sort of time machine to fix this kind of stuff...

    But in all seriousness, if you didn't have some program other than Time Machine doing back-ups that really works as a time machine (like the system restore for Windows) then I'm not sure. Sorry. :(
