Default Please Help! Computer Files and Settings GONE after reset.

Hello computer whizzes.

No time to be cracking jokes I suppose.
Okay, I have a serious problem.

I was uninstalling a program and I was skimming through its uninstallation quickly when out o the blue it poped up a message, I was careless and clicked okay before reading and thats when my problem hit.

After uninstlalling the program , I found that I couldent access My Documents or My Computer, they would highlight but after double clicking, it failed to open, as did everything else.
I decided to reboot my computer.

When I reset, my profile icon was purple as if it couldent find my image of choice, so I logged in and I was astonished to find that I was met with a dark blue background, no icons, and no start up programs. My theme was also completely gone.

After some investigating, I found that windows is recognising me as a "new" computer administraitor and when I try to acces the C drive, everytime I get a message asking me if I want to view the files, just like someone who had created a new account. All my programs are still there as well as documents but everything else is gone, i'm in a panic and i'm unsure of how to fix this.

Please help.

Have you tried a system restore?

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

or

Run > rstrui.exe

Thanks for the fast reply. I'm currently away from my computer just now but I will try it next time I log on.

I must have forgotten all the fixes in my panic.
So thanks.
I'll get back to you about it tomorrow.
