    Okay, so I was using my computer (Toshiba Satelite, Windows 7 64 bit) as usual today, then that window thing popped up asking me to restart my computer to make system updates or whatever, like it usually does.

    When it was done it brought me to my desktop screen, but I noticed a few things were different. First, my background image was gone, and when I went on my start menu, all the programs I had pinned on there had disappered!

    It was like I turned on my computer for the first time ever, and all the default programs were reset to the originals.

    I looked in my library to make sure all my documents were still there...and they were all gone.

    So, I did a little more digging and found that all of the programs I had before were still installed, so that's good. And then I went to my user folder and found all my documents. However, they don't show up in my library folders!

    I just don't know how to get things back to the way before. I really hope someone else knows how to get everything back.

    None of my default stuff if the same, all of my preferences have been reset!!

    All of my fonts that I've downloaded are gone, as are all my themes...

    looks something went wrong with your user profile.

    is user account control enabled?
    try to reboot the system and log in with your user account.

    also check in the users folder on your C drive if there are any other user folders except for your userfolder, default user folder and public.

    oh, and if nothing of the above makes sense you can just restore to an earlier restore point using system restore. :)
