I assure I haven't been. My Time Machine restore put everything back to way it was before the incident and I'm still using the same login and password as I always have. I have also rebooted the machine, shut it down when going out of town and had it freeze needing a hard shut down on occasion before, this reverting back to "like new" glitch is a once in a while thing that is puzzling me. It's not every time I restart or every time I log out or anything...
