You should use your Control Panel to create a new user profile for yourself and then log into the new profile.
You can then look in c:\documents and settings\ folder for the name of your old user profile. In your old user profile you will find your missing files like My Documents, Favorites, Desktop and such. These files can be copied to your new user profile which you will find in the same c:\documents and settings\ folder
