Here it goes. The cat jumped up on the computer and I knocked him off. When I did that the computer restarted - no big deal. When the computer comes back on my desktop is totally blank (no icons or shortcuts) and Windows acts like this is the first time it's been installed - I have to load drivers for devices that have been on the machine for over a year. On top of that my D drive says it needs to be formatted - it was being used right before the crash. So any ideas of what happened?
