    Vista Desktop Unavailable

    hi everyone. i need some help...

    i was using a program when it stoped responding, so i went to task manager to end the program. That did not work. so i turn the computer buy pressing the power button.

    I have found out previsly that doing above may not close the program therefore will on start the computer up properly. so i remove the battery and then replaced it.

    once i restarted my computer this error appeared after logging on...

    C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop refers to a location that is unavailable.

    note: the only icons on my desktop is My Computer, and Recycle Bin. I also can not create folders on the desktop.

    I have tryed rebooting but still comes up with this message

    plz help if u can.
