    I think your User profile is damaged, may be the issue. When this occurs, Windows may create a new profile for you to use, but the new configuration file does not reflect the use of the damaged profile "My Documents" folder. Windows in the C: \ Documents and Settings \New User Folder, create a new profile, which new User Is the current name of Windows for the configuration file. All the best.

    Check the steps:
    # Find your document, and then back up. Your document in C: \ Documents and Settings \Old user name\ My Documents folder.
    # Find your favorites and will back it up. Your stored in C: \ Documents and Settings \Old user name\ Favorites folder.
    # Click the "Start", point to "All Programs", point to "Accessories", point to "System Tools", then click "System Restore."
    # In the "Welcome to System Restore" dialog box, click "Next."
    # In the "Select a Restore Point" dialog box, select a date on the calendar, then select a restore point to restore the computer to its previous state.
    # In the "Confirm Restore Point Selection" dialog box, confirm the selected restore point or restore. Confirm the selection, will start the restore process, restart the computer and prompt you to log on.
    # Log on to the common user profile, and then confirm that the computer has been restored correctly. If your computer has been restored correctly, do not complete the remaining steps. If the computer is not properly restored, the next step.
    # Log off the computer, then use the Administrator account or an account that has administrative privileges log on the computer.

    I think Chkdsk is the best option for you. You detects problems with the file system and attempts to repair the damage, data loss can happen. Microsoft does not suggest running Chkdsk with the /f command-line switch if not you have a full backup of your hard disk. Effort to repair the damaged file, folder or file system index using Chkdsk. To do so, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, and then click Run.
    2. In the Open box, type chkdsk /f <drive>:, where <drive> is the letter of the drive on which the damaged file, folder or file system index exists.
    3. Click OK.
