    Help: Update moved or deleted browser setting plus more


    So last night my computer automatically updated itself and by morning the strangest thing had happened. My deskop was all differently organized, the wallpaper was some random windows image, the Start menu was very different as well.
    Folder of documents/music, etc were empty (though the data was elsewhere). Worse: I use firefox and my passwords cache is suddently empty, no history of yesterday's activity, basically no nothing. I really have no clue of what happened and am trying to find some help to fix whatever happened. Is there a way to recover my passwords/bookmarks or am I failing to see something on the big picture? Help please!

    :)

    C7 Anna internet connection problems

    Well, can't tell if deleting the mailbox helps, 'cause it won't delete. Or maybe I'm just too inpatient for stopping the process after 3½ hours.On the plus side the web connection for the browser now works occationally.

    The mail is set to update every hour, but in reality it updates maybe once or twice a week. Not great. Is there an e-mail client for the symbian that isn't complete **bleep**?

  3. Windows 10 update deleted or moved all pictures

    Where, precisely, were they stored before?



    Example(s):

    • C:\Users\<YourUsername>\Pictures\Archival\
    • C:\Users\<YourUsername>\Desktop\My 7 Years worth of Pictures\
    • C:\Directory You Created\All My Pictures\


    FYI, side tip: get an external USB drive and get it going on making backup COPIES (COPIES is all uppercase because it is not a backup if it is the only copy) of these photos on a REGULAR AUTOMATED BASIS and disconnect that drive (swap it for others on occasion.)
