Windows 7: bit of a problem: No icons, no pinned items...etc...

DT and LT: Windows 7 and Fedora 14
bit of a problem: No icons, no pinned items...etc...

I was doing some work in another OS and had to unplug my SSD boot drive while I was working with it. When I plugged back in the boot drive and tried to boot up windows, all of my customizations (fences, icons, pinned items, wallpapers, etc.) were gone and I got a message saying that it couldn't find the directory C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop.

I used partition wizard and found that the drive letter for all of my programs had changed (I have programfiles and other folders like it symlinked to an HDD). I changed it back and rebooted. I could now access all of my program files, but I still had no icons, pinned items, wallpaper, etc. Is there a way to fix this?
