The unexpected outage can corrupt data on an HD if its writing data on the disk. If its at night, most likely there would be no corrupt data cause no ones using it. In your case, your user profile is most likely corrupted - no big problem. All you have to do is back up important things in "my documents" and the desktop to a folder on the hard drive (more preferably a removable device) NOT the desktop.

To delete a user profile:
-create a new ADMIN account
-login to that account
-right click my computer and select properties
-go to advanced~>User Profiles~>Settings
-delete the profile of the user that has the problem
-Also, delete the USER'S folder in: C:\Documents and Settings\[User] where [user] is the user from step 5
-restart the comp

Upon doing this, windows will create a new user profile when the problem user logs back in. Any changes to the user's environment (My documents, start menu, and desktop) WILL BE DELETED.
well i jsut made the new account and it didnt work. im not gettin any icons on the desktop.

<EDIT> yes i can run cmd.exe.
