Are you on a domain? Are you sure that Windows didn't simply have an issue opening the profile, and created a new one? Try rebooting?

Also, some malware will mark all files as hidden; you can choose to show hidden files to see if they're there:

Other malware moves user files to folders in the TEMP folder:
