Have you done that already in safe mode?
After that login to user administrator with the correct password
I did this and logged in using that profile. Soon after I logged on, my system froze and then I received an error about netprofm.dll. Then an error stating "the instruction at 0x00000.....referenced memory at 0x0000........ The required data was not placed into memory because of an I/O error status of OXC..." When I clicked ok, it was still frozen and has taken sometime to restart.

Ok, this time I was able to log in and create another account to copy my other login. I am now logged into that account.

So far, so good. Everything seems to be working fine so far. Thank you very, very much for hanging in there with me.

C:\users\[youraccount] has these subfolders (and more)
Desktop=>what's on your desktop
Documents=>your documents
Downloads=>your downloads
Favorites=>your internet explorer favorites
Links=>favorite folders show in top left of "file explorer"
Music=>your music
Pictures=>your pictures
Videos=> you video's

Why not simple create a new user account? Afterwards move what's in those folders to the new user account?

Don't forget to delete the old username and its files after a few weeks!
Can you tell me how to move the files over to the new profile?

So in file explorer go to c:\users\Katina
right click on documents, click "cut"
go to c:\users\Kat
right click in empty space and do "paste".

It says "already exists...." Respond with merge folders or something alike. desktop.ini already exists... you may overwrite... they are the same.
