Default What just happened to my computer?

I've had the same system for the past 4 years. I shut it down normally last night.
When I started it up this morning it was as if I started the computer for the first time. Default background, default everything!!!
How do I get everything back????
Windows XP pro SP3

Assuming its not something more serious just go to

Start menu> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore

You should be able to reset your desktop orrientation and a few other minor settings to an earlier date this way.

I owe you the frosty beverage of your choice the next time you are in the area.
I was getting worried at first because they were all failing but I finally got one to work. Now it's just as broken as it normally is!
