TEMP Desktop?

I logged on to my computer this morning, but all my files were gone and a new user was added to the "C:/Users" directory called "TEMP". I logged off then logged back on, and everything was back to normal.

How did this happen, and how can I prevent it in the future?

Your Windows profile ( C:\Users\you) was corrupt or could not be opened within a certain time.
Maybe your Anti Virus was too busy, maybe a disk read/write failure has occured.

I would certainly test the harddisk. You can download and install the Seatools for Windows from www.seagate.com and run the non-destructive test and see what shows up.

Hope this helps
