Hello, i'm not much of a computer "geek" so please excuse me if this post isn't very technical.

I have Windows XP with 4 different Users. 3 of the Users accounts log on and function fine, where as since this morning, the other User account isn't functioning.

When you click the name, it logs on but displays the default desktop with no icons. Also, there are no icons on the Start Menu and you cannot access the documents by clicking "My Documents". Instead, you have to cycle through c:\ to find it.

I may be wrong, but it's as if Windows is not loading the profile, and is creating another one, from default.

Please help me associate the documents, start menu and desktop, back to the User account.

Basically, i want the profile back.

I'd appreciate any help/suggestions/ideas,

Thanks a lot, Steve
