User Profile Issues

  1. User Profile Disappearing

    Recently I've been having problems with my user profile. When I log on, it takes an extremely long time to load my settings, but XP can't find my settings and it sets me up with a temporary profile. The desktop is back to the default background, many shortcuts are missing (My Computer, My Documents, YIM, Adobe Photoshop, etc.), and it pops up with the "tour windows" thing. All of the programs on my computer act as though they've just been installed and all of my save games from The Sims 2 and Half-Life 2 just disappear.
    I scanned for viruses, but I don't have any... of course it may not have found it.

    Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

    That link will send you to a screenshot of the system error that's found event viewer. Before I took this I fixed my desktop up a little. :] The default background reminds me too much of the Teletubbies.
