Good day to all. I would appreciate input / help to address the problem I’m having with Win 7 after I logon to my account. Here are some details of my system and the “problem”.
1)- Hardware: Notebook, MSI U230 Light , CPU Athlon Neo MV-40, RAM 2G , HDD 250 GB
Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium. This is the only OS on the notebook.
2)- The problem occurs in about 10% of all logon attempts – it does not occur all the time. This is how / when the problem occurs:
3)- Win 7 starts successfully and icons for my two profiles (G2 , G-msi) appear. I logon to my account (G2) and then see the “welcome” screen, and after a very long period of searching by the system, windows reports that it cannot find my desktop. The Win 7 notice indicates that a file may have been moved , or that the file may have been on a removable media. (Note: However, I did NOT delete, edit, or remove any file(s) or the HDD).
4)- On one occasion, after this problem occurred, windows provided me with a “temporary account” and desktop and indicated any files that I generated would not be saved when I logged-off. On another occasion when I experienced this problem my desktop wallpaper was replaced with a blue screen Window 7 default. Each time when Windows 7 has been unable to find my desktop, I have shutdown and rebooted and subsequently managed to logon successfully.
5)- It may be of interest to note that all wallpapers / backgrounds used to “personalize” my desktop came from those available in Windows 7 Home Premium version.
My knowledge of Windows is probably that of an "advanced newbie". Your input / help toward resolving this problem would be much appreciated.
