When I booted up my computer today, it gave a strange error message saying that it could not load the user profile because it may be corrupt or something else. It then booted up to the default desktop for the computer, which removed all of my icons, folders, and documents from the desktop. I do know where I can find these files, but I don't want to have to go to the folder that they are in everytime I want to access them. I can copy them to the desktop, but it is only a temporary solution. This is because my computer won't load my user profile everytime I boot the computer, it just boots the default user profile. I have scanned the computer for malware/viruses whatever, but to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Something else strange that mey be worth noting, is that several things asked me if I would like to update:
Internet Explorer (which I barely ever use)
HP also asked if I would like to update

I'm currently running Windows XP Professional on a Compaq 6510b laptop with service pack 3.

Thank you for your help in advance.
