    This is my work computer and we have to input a name and password to log in. When I logged in the other day, everything was gone from my desktop and it had the default wallpaper. It was fine the day before. Is there a way to undo this?

    I can locate my files and everything. The problem is, the software I use for work is gone. It's like it's not installed.

    I wanted to do a system restore, but it says I don't have permission and nobody here seems to know what to do.

    EDIT: I was able to solve it on my own. Thanks.

    What Terry said. It sounds like your profile got hosed, but as you solved, it, no worries. But I would definitely bounce that upstairs at your company and use it as a reason to get someone there.
