Windows 8 resets Main Account

    Windows 8 resets Main Account

    I have an issue with my Windows 8.
    It removes anything I have saved from my desktop, leaves my main folders blank and it also resets all of the programs I have on my account. The files do seem to be safe from within the computer/Local Disk ( C : ) /users folder and I do not have separate accounts for anyone.
    How do I prevent it from resetting itself every time I start up my computer?
