Lightroom 5 acts as if I've just installed it

Deletes all my personal presets/brushes but keeps the catalogs. It's done this about 5 times now. It asks me to register the product (already did that) and then precedes to do a walk-through.

That happens to me every couple a months or so.

If your problem is same as mine, then do this:

- quit Lightroom (don't do the "walk-through"..).
- restore preferences file from a backup.
- start Lightroom..

You'll be right back in the saddle, except maybe for some lost preferences..

PS - I make a copy of my preferences file every time I open Lightroom and again upon closure (I startup via bat file which does it), for when Lr loses it's way again..
