You guys are going to smack me for this one...
I had a backup, but I formatted the drive because it was running low on space and it was scheduled to do a backup last night before this happened. -.-
*EDIT* Apparently a System Restore is different than a backup, but that still didn't fix it. :P
If available, you might try using an older restore point to see if it may work instead.

That did the trick. My best guess would be the registry got corrupted somehow...

I deleted the temporary account and restored permissions so I could access my actual account, which is why you don't see it. :P

Yeah. The first restore I tried from 7/5 did nothing, but the second one that went back to 6/30 fixed it.
