Default user account is TEMP

I logged onto my user account this morning and it was like it was i just created the account. My desktop changed to the stonhenge picture, and the default icons appeared. The other three accounts are unchanged. I opened up a command prompt and the path came up as C:\documents and settings\TEMP I went to delete the TEMP account and it wasn't there. I can still access all my files from windows explorer, but i can't sync my ipod because I log in as me, but somehow I somehow end up as TEMP.

Send a message via AIM to kfc469

go to start>run and type in "control userpasswords2" without the quotes and that should list any hidden user names.
