Start in Safe Mode and then do a system restore back to a date when it was ok. If that fixes it, immediately create a new restore point and name it Profile OK. (Just in case you get it again) This fault has been occurring for months now and usually after an MS critical update! Good backup strategy is paramount.
This is a simple fix that can be done in a few minutes or less. It is a problem with either an update from MSFT that had gone awry or an attack from a virus... Anyhow the steps to take are relatively simple just follow along.

This issue may occur if the user profile was manually deleted by
using the command prompt or Windows Explorer by a user or by some
program. A profile that is manually deleted does not remove the security
identifier (SID) from the user profile list in the registry.
Since the SID is still present, Vista will still try to load the profile
by using the ProfileImagePath that points to a nonexistent path.
Therefore, the profile cannot be loaded. This can also be a issue with the user profile entering into a backup state. Manually renaming the C:\Users\(User Name) folder.
