Sounds like your user profile was corrupted somehow (just a guess).

Here's some links:
Download details: User Profile Deletion Utility (Delprof.exe): http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=en

How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile:

These documents all deal with permissions, ownership, and access denied errors:

Again, please be aware that the changing of these settings is a bit flakey -
and may reuire repeated attempts on the folder and sub-folders to get it to work.

Good luck - this can be frustrating!
