Lost desktop folders



Flightless Bird
Today when I started my desktop (XP SP2), it showed a error about some file missing. So I again installed it on the same drive(without formatting and without changing the file system that is NTFS). Before installation it showed that WINDOWS folder is already present at the current location and it may delete that folder (I continued because my installation was in program files). Now when I logined with Administrator account I didn't find my old Administrator folders on the desktop!!! All my old installed software folders was there in C:/Program Files. It means C drive is not formatted but where are my administrator desktop folders? Even I am not able to access C:/documents and settings\administrator folder. It is giving me error 'Access denied'.

Can anybody help me to get my old folders?
