Windows 7: Desktop Redirect Error?

Desktop Redirect Error?

Hey guys, I'm back again with another error (You guys were amazing in helping me fix my BSOD about a year ago, thanks!)

Not sure how to explain this but here goes:

I started my computer up like normal and everything seemed ok.

It wasnt until I logged in that I realized that logging in took longer than normal.

Upon being logged in, I realize that everything is gone, and I have the default windows fresh start desktop.

I immediately look and my documents and folders as these are the most important for me and they were gone!

However, upon checking the C: drive, I realize that they are still in my hardrive and under my name (something like C://Users/David/My Pictures)

I find this really weird because Im also logged in as David

Any ideas?

Thanks again!

I had this a few times before, it happened after a windows update, a simple restart fixed the problem, it could be malware but il let one of the specialists determine that then i shall be able to help further, good luck

See the answer by Spiritx, that has helped others: "you have been logged on with a temporary profile" - Microsoft Community

This could possibly be a malware , just to make sure download Malwarebytes and run a quick scan. Let me know what happens afterwards.

Temp profile I bet was the cause. Glad you were able to fix it!
