I was working on my computer yesterday during the latter part of the afternoon,  when all of sudden ALL of my desktop icons, short cuts and folders on my desktop DISAPPEAR.   I was like what the hell happen here.   There are several admin accounts on the computer and my account which is an admin account as well.   I restarted the computer (everything fine), however the desktop came up (blank)  to the desktop background  (nothing else).

I can log in as another admin account and everything appears fine,   WHAT is the problem and HOW to I get my stuff back.   My folders and other things that were on my desktop.   From the other admin account I can see and access "my user account AND desktop, folders and short cuts.   What caused the problem and how to I get back to work and or NORMAL??
