WIndows 7 64bit Reverts to old version on reboot RRS feed

  • Question

  • This morning I rebooted my computer and when it restarted I noticed that things did not look right. I was missing some icons and when I clicked on Lightroom, it said the file does not exist. 

    Then I noticed my most recent Amazon mp3 files were from 2010 (I had just purchased an albumn last week).

    Not sure what could have happened on a simple reboot. Could windows 7 have reverted to windows.old? Are my files still there?

  • Hi,


    Generally speaking, a simple reboot cannot lead to restore to previous Windows installation. Have you done some settings before you shut down computer last time?


    I suggest you restore Windows 7 to previous time point to for test, if this cannot fix issue, you could undo system restore.


    Hope it helps.
