weird windows behavior in XP

First I gotta say I love Macs but lack of dedicated software is the real drawback so im on a windows machine right now... that's why comes this short guide! Sometimes when i shut down XP leaving Windows manages quitting all the opened programs, i ran into trouble next time I load those programs: it happens cos windows writes weird values on pref files about programs location on the desktop. I found useful backup the application data, then load the program to generate a new pref folder; looking in this folder I got just few basic pref files instead of dozens in my backed up one. then try to figure out geometry position values and copy paste the new ones in the old configuration file; just restore the backup folder and it should work now.
