    Apparently I screwed up a setting somewhere, or some other program did it
    for me. All of a sudden, I have a '%User Profile%' folder showing up on my
    desktop every time I exit Internet Explorer. Then all, and I mean all, of
    my settings in Outlook Express are gone. That is, I have to reset
    everything, email logons, hotmail logons and resubscribe to newsgroups,
    including redownloading all of them. What a pain! Someone out there got an
    idea as to what idiocy I have perpetrated on this machine, and how I can fix

    A P.S., I can find the folder in 'Local Settings' that seems to have all of
    my 'old' info in it, however, I cannot figure out how to put it back where
    it belongs...

    Thank you 'ChairMan'. That seems to have done the trick. I can't, for the
    life of me, figure out how it got changed or whatever happened to it...

    Glad you got advice on how to fix it! I've had similar FUBARs with OE and I
    got damn tired resetting the settings every time. I now back it up daily
    with a freebie called Karen's Replicator. Google is your friend.
