    I had several Missing/Corrupt Profile errors under Windows XP Pro (sp2). I fixed the issues, but I would like to understand why this occurs so I can prevent it from occurring again. I checked the machine for virii, etc., (clean), performed a disk check (no issues), etc.

    Also, I have had 4-5 Missing/Corrupt Profile msgs. on this computer. I can usually gain access my profile by restarting the machine.

    I have been running XP for several years on various machines and this is the first time I had this issue.

    THanks
