Dell Computer bought in February 2007. Mabye factory preinstalled Windows xp media center edition. Clonetag in January of 2007. Admin account and one of the user accounts was not used very often. Both have shortcuts to C\sysprep, Winbom, winbom(2) as only shortcuts recents but can't be opened because the files are no longer on the computer. Recovery software found sysprep folders created aug 15 2005, modified 2004 that had been deleted. Is there a scenerio here that would leave those shortcuts in recents folder at factory install but create a clonetag of Jan 2007?

Deleting a file does not delete shortcuts to that file. If the system was cloned after the files were deleted and they didn't delete shortcuts referencing those files, the cloned copy would contain those shortcuts. It would also be possible to change the date on the system and delete a file and have it show a different deletion date than the actual. There are many things that could create a situation like that. You would need to dig very deep to find the actual reason that the situation exists.
Thanks for the response. If system restore is used in Windows XP, does it show up In event viewer or is that log reversed also? Any other signs of a system restore date on a computer. The restore wouldve been done a long while back.
