    Hello,
    My coworker received and error this morning while trying to log in. It seems now that there has been a new profile created with the same name but a dot ~ ie: TedH old profile name and now there is a new profile called TedH.TedH

    When my coworker tries now to log onto TedH using the original password, he is redirected to TedH.TedH and has lost all original profile settings. How do I restore the original profile and get rid of this TedH.TedH profile - is it possible?

    Thanks,
    Monique

    Since this is a work computer you should contact your IT department for assistance.
