You say you are on a temp account.

Did you navigate to "C:\Users\Your User Name here\" to see if your original profile with your files exists?

At this point its moot... its possible that by doing a repair install you can recover from whatever damage was done.. other than that, you will need to do a reinstall of the OS.. Did you back your data up??

At this point I would do a reinstall of the OS.... I know that this is probably not what you want to hear, but I dont see any alternative at this point...
