    There are 2 administrator accounts on this computer. Windows 8.1 is the OS. Desktop PC. One I have not had problems with temporary profile. The other account got a you are logged into a temporary profile. The background is black after I log in. Does this account need to be deleted and make a new account? How do I fix this?
    I found this http://www.sysprobs.com/fixed-temporary-profile-windows... and did scan drive for problems. No errors were found.
    I also did a sfc/scannow and I attached the results. I don't know what the results mean or how to access any of that information if I need to do so.
    I wanted to know from you what are the next steps if any I need to do so that the temporary profile issue does not happen in the future.

    What if anything can I do to prevent computer files getting corrupted?

    Thanks for your time and help.
