Last night, I closed all windows and shut down my computer before I went to bed like I usually do. The following morning when I turned my computer on and waited for it to load, a small window popped up on the blue welcome screen. It said, "Windows cannot open the locally stored profile. Possible causes may include insufficient security rights or a corrupt local profile. If the problem persists, contact your network administrator. Windows is opening a temporary profile."

The only option on the window was "Okay", so I clicked it and waited. When the desktop came up, the wallpaper that I had before was gone and it had the original blue "Dell" desktop instead. All of the applications that I had before were still there, but when I clicked a program like iTunes, it opened a setup wizard, as if I had never used the program. I checked My Documents, and all my documents, pictures, videos, etc. were gone. Also, my network internet connection would not connect or configure, no matter how many times I tried repairing it, as if the temporary profile didn't recognize the broadband connection. So, in other words, I currently have no internet on my computer. *On her mother's computer at the moment*

Please tell if there's some way that I can fix whatever apparently "corrupted" my local profile or if I can at least get back to my local profile. I just haven't gotten the chance to get a pack of discs to save all my documents to and I'm already really upset that I can't even get to them since this problem just appeared out of the blue. I've never had this happen with another other computer I've had or used.

Anyone have any ideas/suggestions? :thumbsup:
