Default My User account is missing...Loads up a default admin account.. Help

I went out to eat something into the kitchen for abotu 15 minutes and I come back to see my computer on a non responsive black blank screen, I pop in my windows CD and for some reason it just decides to finish up an install.

Then windows (XP) and my user account is missing, it just loaded up a default admin account with my user name. But still the hard drive shows up as having all my info... Help anyone?
Thanks...

I just ran lavasoft and AVG this morning as well.
