This is caused because the desktop.ini file is corrupt or infected by a virus. I suggest running a full scan with Microsoft Security Essentials to try to remove the virus. If the file can not be recovered you will need to create a new user and then do a disaster recovery of everything except the following files: Ntuser.ini, Ntuser.dat, Ntuser.dat.log
