My computer recently encountered the BSOD. Naturally I rebooted my machine and was prompted with an error message which turned out to be relating to a corrupted registry.
I followed the appropiate steps listed on Microsoft's website and successfully managed to get my computer up and running again. I should also mention the fact that I ran a Repair install with the windows installation disc to fix and error that had been bugging me for some time.
After I had completed the registry fix and booted back up, I noticed I was required to log in to "Administrator" at the login screen. I thought Okay all my documents + files will be still safe and sound within this account. Wrong, my original user account had gone missing and all I have is a new Administrator account to show for it with nothing in it apart from a few of my original programs.
Under documents and settings I can still see my old account with files and programs in it I just cant access it via the Windows login screen. Why is this? Is this account now lost? I don't fancy copying and pasting everything across as it looks like i have to reinstall my Anti Virus software and Photoshop all over again for example. Where is my original account?
Many thanks for any assistance.
