Windows 7: Windows 7 logs in to temporary profile

Windows 7 logs in to temporary profile

I did not delete my profile, but whenever I log in to my account, it says:
Welcome [swirly]
and then
Preparing your desktop [swirly]
...which I know it only does when a new account is being loaded.
Then, I'm in the temp profile. My comp is activated, as it is the RTM. Why is it doing this? How can I fix this?

BTW: I am restoring my good ole' 7 partition; this is the new one. If this fails, I'm stuck with:
Slow Vista
Temp Profile 7
and Not-optimized-for-my-computer XP.

Try backing up all you data and booting into Safe Mode. Then delete your user account and create a new one.
