    Try opeing control Panel and folder options. then clicking reset all folders button.

    Also you could try logging in in safe mode as Administrator and try access that way.

    If that fails try opening the cmd prompt as Administrator in safemode. do a dir and locate the folders you want the long names will be shortened and probably have the '~' at there end.

    If you can get into the folder and see listed all the docs etc, do xcopy *.* and then a destination folder name
    (eg. >c:\docume~1\xcopy *.* c:\newdocs)

    Hope that helps

    Can you run System Restore to a point before this happened ?
    should cure it if you can.
