When installed the newest graphic's driver I rebooted windows as suggested, I click on my Windows profile (takes longer than normal, knew something was wrong). Then all of the suddenly I'm in an temp account.

I have Windows XP Professional by the way.

This happend once before, then I made a new account and configured everything. But I don't want to do that again so I'm asking for help.

Anyway to fix this?

windows profiles are 10 a penny dude.. recreate one.

if you really need to save your own, try a system restore?
go back to before you installed the driver and you could save it and do some research before installing again.

try the usual for that, i mean run as admin, run in compatability mode and so on..


hope this helps!

Well, creating a new profile is a solution but this happend before and I don't want to keep creating new profiles and configuring programs etc everytime.

I'll try the system restore, that's a good one.

I didn't quite get what you meant with "try the usual for that, i mean run as admin, run in compatability mode and so on.." though, could explain this more please?

Thanks for your help by the way!

hey no worries,

if your in vista, right clicking on any executable file will give you the option to run as administrator. this gives the application full control of the machine and lets it do what it wants.... i.e manipulate driver signings and what not.

if its an old progam or game or what ever then, again right clicking on the file and going to properties and choosing 'run in compatability mode' will run the setup in the enviroment that it was designed for...


i hope you understand that... (y):D

It's a Geforce. Anyway the problem has been solved by using system restore (I never thought this day would happen) but thanks anyway :eek:
