    UNABLE access my profile when logging onto my computer

    i quite often leave my computer to sleep. At some point my computer shut down. since then when i open my computer and it asks for my password for my profile account it logs on to a temporary one. If i type the wrong password it tells me so i know my password is correct. I went online to MSN and was able to log on to my account so I know my account is ok. I also used a tablet that I have the same login and it let me do that.
    I have run an antivirus. the only thing i did that may have changed something was to put the default language into Greek and saved a webpage. A colleague suggested to clear cookies and my browser history but this is not available.
