Default Problem w/ XP Temp. Accounts

When I log into my user-account in XP Pro, XP redirects me to a temp. account. I can still access all my files, but to do so, I must first navigate through the folders on the hard drive.

This reoccurring problem is a reoccurring one on my family's computer. All I know [about the source of the problem] is that it is not because of a virus/trojan/etc., because we have a secure system [and anti-virus programs to prove it].

Does anyone know what could be the cause of this reoccuring problem? I am assuming that it is something to do with XP.

ok...

Have you tried deleting your personal user account, and then creating it again? (Be sure to backup your personal files to an alternate directory though).
