What happen to my shortcut?

Specs: Windows XP
I turned on my computer and my icons were all moved, nothing recognized me and everything was lost. I received help from Geek Squad. NEVER AGAIN BY THE WAY! He found my music and copied it to my itunes account that I had to set up again. He found my pictures some where other than my folder that had my pictures in it before. He created a shortcut to the desktop for my pictures. That night I logged off and logged on the next day and everything was back to my original setting. I had all my icons and playlist back that he said I would never get back. Only problem is that the pictures are gone along with the shortcut icon he created. It's like he copied that shortcut in the other setting and now no one can find them. I found my pictures folders in the recently changed folder. When I click to see the location it says "this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly. Do you want to delete this shortcut?" Is there any way to locate the shortcut or original file??? Someone please help!

Sounds like you logged in under a different profile the 2nd time and now you are back to your original profile.

Go to settings and documents and review the list of users. One of them is new. Your pictures are in that profile's folders
