    Last night I went to bed and left my laptop on connected to interweb...as usual. This morning I awoke to fine it had reverted back to my default settings losing all documents / music etc. Luckily it was backed up. I'm not running virus software....yet. Has anyone heard of this before or is it likely a virus?

    Thanks for your help

    It's not a virus. I have no idea beyond that, but it's not a virus.

    Are you sure you didn't rename your home folder in your sleep?
