Sorry for the typing error

Guessing a little here:

Can you right click start and see 'Explore All users' ?
In the Documents and Settings, does it list a number of user accounts?
I wonder whether your usual user account has corrupted and the laptop has created a new one, which you are now using.
You might see eg: funcool (your old profile) and maybe, funcool.000 (the new one)
If so, you should be able to copy files from the old profile to your new one.

Have deleted your thread in Feedback funcool.

Misc is the place for it. Im sure you will get the help you need.
