Windows 7 deleted my settings!!

I booted up W7 on my laptop today in lecture and when it was starting up it said something like "configuring desktop..." and took some time to boot, and when I finally got in, all my settings were gone! I was still logged into my same user account, but my wallpaper was gone, the files on my desktop were gone, my firefox bookmarks were deleted :mad:, I think most of my documents were still there but in the wrong places. Does anyone know what caused this and how I can get my settings back??

Have you tried a previous restore point?

No, I haven't. I'll go try it, but how do I get to a restore point?

Click Start and type Restore and select Restore to an earlier time
