I accidentaly deleted a guest account a few days back. I used system restore them to get it back then.
Today, my computer had turned itself off and when I log on, the guest account is missing. The folder and all files of the guest account are still present in C:\Documents and settings, but I can't seem to get the prompt for my user account. The user account does not appear in the User Accounts on Control Panel.
The funny thing is that when I try to set up a new user account by that same name, it tells me that the account already exists.
I tried system restore both in the safe mode and in the adminstrator mode, it does not help

No help with 'control userpasswords2'. The account does not appear in the users!
I get a prompt "The user account cannot be created because the user already has permission to use this computer"
If I use this: Start > right click on My Computer > in System Properties go to Advanced tab > User Profiles
My user account is still there.
But it does not appear in the Control Panel > User Accounts.
