  1. I think U did more then just make a new user account...sounds like a corrupted profile...
    Can U get to your user's safemode? Does it do the same? (press F8 a few times at startup, select safemode, and your user)
    Maybe U can try a system restore. (start>run>msconig and launch system restore)

    I'm not sure of where the "connecting" thing comes from (can U post a screen? take a picture?)
    maybe it's from a service? not sure...
    Can U open task manager (alt ctrl del) and try to open explorer.exe? (with new task) to see if it loads your desktop.
    Can U access your files from the other user? I mean, go to C:\Documents and settings\Your_USER_NAME\Desktop

    if a system restore doesn't work , U can try making another user and copy your desktop, and your My documents folder from the old one to the new one.
