Windows XP Help


#1

Need to fix the in-laws computer but I’ve been windows-free for 10 years now so don’t know wtf I’m doing.

Basically it seem like their computer was somehow restored to factory settings, but all of their old files and settings are still saved in a folder on the C: drive. So I know the info is in there, but the computer isn’t accessing that info on startup. IE they are seemingly logging in as “David Choi” but he just has all the generic/factory settings, wheres if you go into the C: drive you can find another user/David Choi that does have all of their stuff.

Anyone know how I can get all that info back to being in use?

Start where it says “Copy files to the new user profile”
