Windows 7: Profile Problem

Profile Problem

This problem just started last night. If I shut down my computer, then turn it on, it thinks I'm a new user and I don't have my wallpaper and ALL of my icon shortcuts on my desktop, but If I immediately reboot (without shutting the computer off) everything is the way its suppose to be. I tried this morning to shut down the computer and restart and its the same thing. I"m stumped on how to fix this. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
