    I am using Dell laptop with Windows 7 Pro

    Today when i logged into my laptop as administrator all my desktop folders and files gone.

    only default folders like recycle bin are there.

    when i searched through windows explorer i found out that system is not pointing to default desktop folder which is under,

    c:\users\administrator\desktop (here all my folders and directories are present. Can see through windows explorer)


    i found one administrator\desktop folder under my desktop folder which is strange. system is pointing to this desktop folder where only default desktop folder are available. Nothing else.

    When i created new folder on my desktop it is showing under,


    and not under


    I had pinned outlook to the taskbar. thats also gone.

    What can be the issue and how to fix it.

    One more issue, I had setup MS outlook on my laptop but now if i open it, it takes me to setup wizard.

    Any help?
