few months ago & all of a sudden when i opened my sony vaio pc it said "preparing your desktop" & then the desktop was totally different it had just few programs that i had with no folders!! i searched around for anything but they were all empty but then i found my stuff from going to computer-> local disk C -> Users -> "my user" & there i found all my files!! so whenever i want to open something i have to go through the whole thing to get it i don't understand what really happened & i don't know how to fix it so please help me..

P.s: sometimes i find that the current user is "TEMP"..i don't know i have windows xp 7

It is because your user profile is corrupt, so it loads a generic user. Can be a pain to restore, but plenty of advice on Google - input 'user profile corrupt' with the operating system (W8, W7, Vist etc). Sometimes, just a system restore will correct it, so try that first.
