Had the weirdest thing happen today and just wondered if anyone has had the same experience, I had to disable UAC on one of our users laptops because of some issues with updating some software he has, I disabled UAC like I have done a hundred times before
and after a reboot the user logged in to find ALL their desktop folders/files vanished, they had completely vanished, they were not even in the Recycle Bin. I cannot possibly see how disabling UAC could cause this to happen in anyway. The laptop is on
our domain, has Windows 7 32-bit Pro installed and user has power-user access. My initial thoughts were that a new profile was created for him or he had been assigned a temporary one but this wasent the case.
I managed to recover the folders/files but I'm determined to get to the bottom of why it would even do this. Anyone had something similar happen? I cannot see a connection between me disabling UAC and this happening.
