It sound like there might be some profile corruption. I don't know how? You can try creating a new profile or try renaming your old profile.

Right click on my computer- manage - Local users and groups-

Click (next to File) Action - new user- and create a new user.

You can also rename the old profile name here too.

If this is what you need you could always try a system restore.
