help with a recent "mandatory" update RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I downloaded the prescribed (notified) updates that came across my toolbar at the bottom of my screen.    As a result of these downloads, i am now running IE 8 which I don;t want and Media Player 11 which I don;t wabt, but more importantly, all my desktop items from my old computer are "gone" in that they are not visible under my user account.   For some reason, though, I can find the old stuff, but it comes up in compatability mode and only if I go into the "recently changed" folder - and not all my documents are in there either.      How can I restore all the old systme files so as to get my materials back where I want them.       Thank you.

  • It sounds like you possibly have a corrupt user profile. Since this issue started with Windows updates I suggest the Microsoft Update Solution Center for help - http://support.microsoft.com/ph/6527#tab0
