Your user profile was not loaded correctly! You have been logged on with a temporary profile.

Try these steps:

  1. Log on with local administrator account, preferably in safe mode. To boot the machine in safe mode, Click F8 during boot.
  2. Click Start + Run and type in regedit and then Enter.
  4. Open Software
  5. Open Microsoft
  6. Open Windows NT
  7. Open Current Version
  8. Open ProfileList
  9. Here you will see keys that belong to each profile. To find your problematic profile navigate to each key and refer to the ProfileImagePath entry on the right hand side.
  10. Once you find your problematic profile, just delete the key. This means delete the folder on the left hand side tree view that contains your alias in the ProfileImagePath entry.
  11. Restart machine.

There is another way you can actually backup your profile and create a new one.

Click on “Start”, Right click “Computer” and go to “properties”

Click on “Change Settings”


Go to the “Advanced” tab and click on User Profiles “Settings” button



“Change type” will allow you to change your profile type between Roaming and Local Profiles

“Delete” will delete that profile. Including the registry entries and everything.

“Copy To” will back up your profile. It is always advisable to backup your profile from here rather than from anywhere else. Your profile contains more than you can see. Hidden Files, System Files, etc. This takes care of everything in a safe manner.
