Ive had this weird problem for a few months now and just decided to mention it. It seems that windows will randomly lose connection with everything on desktop and I cant get into anything. Then when I go to restart it or log off, it seems to revert to the non-welcome/no users listed screen setting even though its set to the welcome/user names settings. I also noticed that when this problem happens all the desktop icons/shortcuts go to 227 bytes in size, no webpages will load even if its already open, no folders can be accessed and the "start" in the start menu disappears with nothing in there being accessible. Whether its related or not, I also noticed that scandisk always seems to check one of my partitioned drives even though nothing comes back wrong or is scheduled. Our virus checks come back negative, scandisk is negative, windows reg errors are negative and we just tried today the system restore option and that didnt fix anything as well. Any ideas on what this bizarre problem could be coming from? Thanks.
