Hello Suzik0n, and welcome to Seven Forums.

How did you rename the user profile folder?

If you are able to, log on to another administrator account (step 4 at link below), and see if you may be able to pick up at step 9 to change the registry settings to match the renamed folder since you already renamed the folder.

Hope this helps,
