Windows 7: Set computer to sleep, desktop settings disappeared.

Set computer to sleep, desktop settings disappeared.

Hello, I set my computer to 'sleep' mode on windows 7 and when i turned it on ~20 hours later, my background was replaced by the default background and all my pinned items on the taskbar were completely removed, nothing is pinned now. I tried running a game called League of Legends and it says "pvp.net patcher kernel has stopped working". I also tried running intel rapid storage technology, and it stopped working with a similar reason. They worked flawlessly previously, so I think it's related to this issue. Notepad, and chrome is working however. I tried restarting, ran a quick virus scan with mse, and system restored to the 23rd. Anything that won't run like League, Steam, or Skype works when I run it as an administrator. I can't pin anything to my taskbar, I open the program, and when I click 'pin to taskbar', it acts as if it cannot be clicked. Please help, this is really annoying.

System Restore didn't fix it?

Try Tweaking.com - Windows Repair run it in Safe Mode with Networking.

If that doesn't work, do you mind some copy-pasting? The new account you created should work.

Alright, first time I ran it, I got 'Untitled Post' | TextUploader.com . After running the repair tool and following the instructions, I have 'Untitled Post' | TextUploader.com .
On a seperate note, since my other account works, is there any way I can transfer all my files to the other account easily as a solution? Thank you so much for the help.

Problems were found with the Reparse Points.
You can use the Repair Reparse Points Tool at the bottom of this Window to try and fix these problems.
So, did you try the Repair Reparse Tool?

And yeah, you can copy paste to new account.
