Default Weird Problem Upon Boot

Hey guys. I just got a new computer yesterday and I got a really odd situation when I turned on my computer this morning. (Please keep in mind that I have never used Vista before)

Upon boot, I get to my desktop, except that my desktop is not there. Instead what pops up is a window that shows me all of my documents and nothing else.

Here is a screenshot of the issue:


Thanks in advance for your help.

If your Documents/Computer Folder opens automatically at StartUp...

Click Start > Run Regedit > Navigate To > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\ Winlogon
In RHS panel, change value of "Userinit" to : C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe

Now Navigate to : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Explorer\ Advanced
In RHS panel, change value of "PersistBrowsers" to 0
