Any way to get laptop contents back?

Compaq / Cq61 notebook

Specs: Windows 7, 4gb
Well, i'm bewildered to say the least.

Was on my laptop (Compaq laptop, not sure which as I can't seem to find it on Ebuyer anymore) until about 3am maybe. Was fine then, and has been fine since I got it back in September I think it was.
Turned it on at about 4:15pm today, and near on everything has gone. Managed to get onto my browser (Chrome), can't anymore, and all the history had gone. Can't sign into MSN as my contact list isn't ready, or something like that. Lost all the stuff I had on sticky notes, and in folders.

Tried restarting, and turned it off then left it, then turned it on again, still the same. Had a message saying something like, 'can't log onto user desktop, therefore logging onto default user desktop' happen twice though.

Really confused by this. Just wondering if anyone knows why it might of gone like this?
By the way, it's running Windows 7 Premium (came with this on it).

You ma;y have been infected with some kind of nasty.

Do you have any restore disks?

You could try booting into Windows safe mode by tapping F8 at start up. If an administrator password is requested and you don't know it, just hit enter. Once in there you can perform a system scan and/or try to perform a system restore back to a time/date prior to the problem occurring. If the system restore doesn't fix the problem then perform an undo of the restore.
