    I recently installed Windows XP Home and everytime I shut down my system or even just restart, when XP is back up all of the following information is not there as it was before shutting down or restarting..It loses all internet addresses that I have put in to go to different websites, Favorites are lost as if never saved, any usernames & passwords that XP ask me if I want it to remember when surfing,,all have to be re-entered. I stopped using my outlook express to download my emails because everytime I would download emails then shut the system down and reboot they were all gone! Its like the Computer is forgetting everything I did before shutting down or restarting with the exception of programs that I install and save to the hard drive..Please help!! :confused:

    That is one wierd problem. What a pain. If xp has been installed for a while try a system restore.
    It could even be something you've loaded, maybe a tweak program or similar.

    I have found this one common with upgrades on HP computers. I can't give you an explination, but on all four of my installations, only my HP machine (and a friends HP machine) have done that.

    That is a damn hard to troubleshoot problem...only thing I could say is to take the punge and do a clean format of XP and see if that solves the problem =/
