You followed instructions, which were complicated. If what i am going to suggest doesn't works, then i'll help you with restoring via your method. Can you tell me if you were able to login via Safe Mode?

Then, it would be best to login via Safe Mode, create a new account (as administrator) a new profile and then copy the date from old profile to the new profile. Let me know once you've logged into Safe Mode. I'll then send next steps.

I've lost all my icons
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Most of my icons

That was supposed to happen because your profile was corrupt. Now go to C:\Users\ open the older username and copy the desktop icons to the desktop (in this window) and any other files/folders that you need from the previous account.

Did it work?

My tablet ran out of battery which was what I was using to converse on. Everything was fine until we got to the C: users bit I couldn't work out which folder was with the old user name. Call me stupid!!! Also I was going to be late for work. Anyway I ended up doing system restore. Thank you for your help though much appreciated.
