Windows 7: You have been logged into a temporary profile

You have been logged into a temporary profile

Hey all.

I have started encountering a weird problem on both my desktop and laptop. Every now and then, when I log in, it says Loading Desktop instead of Welcome, and it logs me into a temp profile. The action center says to check the monitor (I don't remember which one), but nothing is there.
Any ideas? Solutions?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Lordbob,

It should be the same as in Vista.

User Profile Error - Logged on with a Temporary Profile - Vista Forums

Hope this helps,

Shawn, this solutions seems to fix a permanent problem. My problem occurs randomly (as far as I can tell. I will start paying more attention).

There is nothing in the event log either... I'm really lost on this.

As I said, sometimes it works just fine.

It's an annoying issue that a lot of people have seen (except for me, oddly enough). So I've heard, normally you can just logout and back in again.

Do you have a password set on your user account or is it set to login automatically? It must be a bug. Windows can't keep up with itself so it loads a temporary profile.

Password. And if I log out and back in, it just happens again.

well if the problem is on 2 computers it cant be hardware related...i guess it must be some file or some property which is same on both the laptop ad desktop....

as of me these can be the reasons...do have a look on these...

Entirely possible. It may also be an issue with the RC. I never had it with the Beta. It's not a big deal, so I will wait until RTM comes out, and hopefully the problem with be gone.

Help! I've been using Windows 7 for a couple of days and this problem has been driving me mad. At random times, when a user logs in, it comes up with a temporary profile. This is all on a single machine with 4 user accounts (2 of which are admin). The only cure is a reboot. It's bad enough when it's my account or my wife's, but my children shouldn't have to know how to sort this out :-/

I was using Vista for a couple of years on the machine and never had this problem.

When I've searched for the problem on the net, the official Microsoft response seems to cover permanently corrupted profiles. That is obviously not the problem as it goes for long periods without any problems.

Hello Somersetisimon,

My issue was resolved with the RTM release (I got mine in August). If you are not running RTM, then that is my first recommendation.

If you are, then open up command prompt (run as admin) and type this:
Code:
sfc /scannow
