I have somehow managed to delete the \users\ directory from my admin profile in windows 7. Forexample previously I had C:\Users\John\Start Menu\Programs.... now I only have C:\John\.... This means I lost all my shortcuts my "roaming directory" etc. The system is still running but many programs are looking for directories they can't find... in other works \Users\ is most likely there, but not accessible by the admin (or any other) user... Restore does not help! Any suggestions barring re-installing the operating system?
