    Hello can you please help, for some unknown reason my PC boots up into a new temp profile (n) instead of the current admin profile that I have always been using. I can see all my old settings in my other profile but its a pain because It wont let me boot to my previous existing profile. please can you help. Cheers:mad:

    So you're able to switch profiles and log into the other one just fine?

    Is it just not logging into the correct profile when you start up your machine?

    No it wont let me log into my original profile at all but I can access things like dektop and internet shortcuts and my old documents. Its just I dont know how to get it to boot to my original profile, and I cannot delete the temp profile either. Is there a way of doing this so I can oot to my old profile.

    The temp profile does not appear when the login screen appears only my old login and password, I log in as normal but the PC boots to the temp profile again.

    I'd do what I mentioned in that other thread... If you delete your profile and recreate it, you should be good. The symptoms you describe sound like a corrupt profile to me.
