Hey there,

It'll definitely help a lot to provide as much detail as possible. The better we understand the problem, the more likely we can get you the best answer.

The most obvious explaination is a virus. Do you have an antivirus and check from time to time your sistem? Have you downloaded something from quetionable/non-familiar websites?
If that's not the case, then try the automated repair. For more details, check a video-tutorial.
1. Turn off your computer.
2.1. Turn it back on.
2.2. Immediatly after, press repeatedly on the F8 key.
  1. Now should appear a black screen with more options, "Launch startup repair" would be highlighted. Press Enter.
  2. Follow the steps on the screen until you see the blueish Windows 7 login screen with a window.
  3. Click on "Start Automatic Repair".

If that didn't work, open command prompt as administrator. There are 2 commands I'm going to suggest:
  1. Type SFC /SCANNOW (remember to add a space before "/")
  2. If that didn't work, try with chkdsk. There are multiple steps, it would be simpler and easier to provide you a video-tutorial instead, like this one.

As said above, most likely a corrupted profile causing a temporary profile to be created on each login. See the following link for how to proceed:

Try doing this:
  1. Download Revo Uninstaller, and uninstall any suspicious program that you don't remember that you installed in your computer
  2. Reboot and enter Safe Mode with network support.
  3. Download and scan with ADWCleaner.
  4. Download and scan with Malwarebytes.
  5. If needed, refresh your browsers.

All of which does absolutely nothing to fix a corrupted profile. Create a new profile and transfer what can be transferred from the old one is the only thing that can be done in this case.
