I recently upgraded to windows 10 from windows 10 on a dell

Customer Question

Hello, I recently upgraded to windows 10 from windows 10 on a dell inspiron all-in one machine, I decide to keep IE 11 as my default browser, disabled tablet view and made my desktop appear as it did before with all my icons, all my files and folders stayed
intact, this was about 2 months ago. Yesterday when I tried to log in, there was a message that it was going to check my hard disk for errors so I let it run, after restarting I got a message on the right lower screen that stated "logged in as a temporary
user, now I can not access any of my files or folders and IE11 is also gone, my computer is almost unusable in this condition and I do not like windows 10 all that much but I'll keep it if I can get it back to where it was, my question is: How do I go recover
my original user information, so I can access my files and go back to the way it was. I have tried a few things including account settings and user settings, but the problem is that I can't even run as administrator, it's like I'm logged in as guest with no
access to anything. Almost all information on the web is for W7 or 8 and is useless. Please provide a step by step solution if possible.
