* What was the name of your account and what is the name of the one he created? By default Windows sets up one account, an administrator simply named "Administrator". If you create a second administrative account, "Administrator" becomes hidden automatically. This is by design so that you have one account you can fall back on if the others become corrupt.
* When the Welcome Screen appears (where you select a username) press ctrl + alt + delete twice and then type in your username and password (if applicable) into the alternative logon box. That should get you back in.
* Your files should still be located in C:\Documents and Settings\your username here...browse to that location from My Computer and verify.
* You can install Microsoft's TweakUI and after clicking Logon place a checkmark to each account you want displayed on the Welcome Screen so that you can choose from now on.
Hope this helps,
My computer was working fine. I would turn on the computer and it'll go straight into my desktop and I'll see all my files and icons on the desktop. Just 2 days ago, my son decides to "create" his own user account and he happens to set it him up also as the "administrator". When ever we turn on the computer, it would go to a screen and it would ask us to select a user to log on as (only one avail, it's his). We'd click his user account and it goes to a desktop, however, there is only 2 icons (recycle bin and adobe reader), nothing else. Where are my files/icons? How do I fix it? I rather undo what he did but it appears that I can't delete his user account because he is the administrator. HELP Please !!!!
