Are you logging into a temp profile where everything appears like a new user / generic?  if so, then Windows couldn't locate your profile.  Comment above is accurate where you can just pull off important data such as Desktop / My Documents and copy them over to a new profile.

Under C:\users what are the profiles in there?

Your profile may have become corrupted.  Create a new profile to test. If this is the case, use the new profile and delete the old one.
