I have Vista Home Premium. I only have 1 administrative account and the guest account has been turned off. Originally my user profile was not loaded and a temp account was loaded for me. What i noticed was that the documents and settings folder was gone. I know that it is just a junction folder leading to the user folder but i thought that the profile was not loaded correctly because the filepath was like c\documents and settings\user or something for loading the original profile. so what i did was make things worse i completely moved my account folder (named Tim which is located in the user folder) to a hidden folder called default which is also located in the user folder. Because of this, my computer wont even give me a temp user to use. now when i start up my computer, it says user profile service failed the logon, then goes back to the users screen, which only has 1 user, Tim, the non working one. I don't have a guest user or anything else to click on. I have to go into safe mode to do anything but i cant create another user or anything because i dont have administrative power. i only had 1 account with administrative power and i turned off the guest account. am i dead or what. BTW, Ive tried the popular vista tutorial that every1 keeps referring me to that has 2 options or hwatever and it didnt work for me. i tried enabling the hidden admin thing using cmd and it came up with some password garbage so nothing. i tried editing my regedit but nothing happened. it assumed u were using another administrative account.
