Windows 7: Profile Problem?

Profile Problem?

I logged into computer as normal. It began by telling me it was building my desktop. An odd desktop appeared and now I cannot access programs and my Libraries are all empty. If I go to the users folder on the hard drive my libraries are available there. Can you please tell me how I can get back to my administrator profile? Many Thanks.

Hello Marvin, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Did you get an error message?

For now, you might see if doing a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before you had this issue may be able to help.

Thank you Brink for your quick reply.
I tried to restore but I can only get yesterday's restore point.
This is the error message, "You have been logged in with the default profile for the system. Please see the vent log for details or contact your administrator".

Temporary Profile Problem
Hi all, firstly sorry if this is in the wrong place.... Yesterday I turned on my computer as usual to find that when I entered my password into my user log on, instead of "welcome" I got "preparing your desktop". I didn't grasp quite what that meant (figured windows updates was to blame)...

I tried this...
