Before doing any of the following, make a backup of your registry. I suggest you install ERUNT to do this.
Your files are still there. Sounds like your user profile has lost it's connection with where it's data is stored. If you are comfortable with using regedit, try this by booting to Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Login as Administrator, no password.
The key is a registry hack that redirects Windows back to the ProfileImagePath of the original profile.
Click on Start / Run type regedit and press Enter. Navigate to
Once there, you will see the SID's listed for all of the profiles on the machine. Something like this:
Within the Key for each SID there is an entry called "ProfileImagePath" that will look like
%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\UserName...
Scroll through the SID's until you find the one with the screwy name, like
%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\youruserid.2
This is just an example, could be someithing else weird.
Just edit the Key to remove the ".2", and it will point the user back to their old profile...
