Hi :thumbsup:.

At times, a user profile (or any other file) can become damaged/corrupted. This can due to any number of reasons, net effect is that the file does not behave as it should or it cannot be read by the system.

If you are indeed logged on...you should be able to see whatever files you had.

In any case, this is what you should try, How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile in Windows XP - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=811151
