My Uncle recently turned on his PC; which has several user profiles on it so his family has one each, and his computed started up with the windows Chkdsk. It ran through and I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think it said it found any problems. So then he clicked on his profile to log in as normal and when he got to the desktop, he'd lost his wallpaper, all his photos had gone along with everything else as far as it seems. The other profiles seem to work fine, they have their own wallpapers and files as normal.
He thinks that he's lost his Admin rights to the profile and that the "missing" files could just be hidden from him due to him not having the Admin access rights.
So, I hope someone can suggest anything to remedy this problem, I was thinking a system restore perhaps? (Assuming he's got the option switched on.) Apologies if my description of the problem isn't too helpful, but while I've always used windows XP, I've not had experience with (multiple) user profiles before. If you need any more information just ask and I'll see what I can do.
Thanks for your time,

Would it be worth asking my Uncle to try that?
