Windows 7: Guest Account logs in with temporary profile

Guest Account logs in with temporary profile

Not sure how to fix this problem. I did not see a hive with the .bak extension in the HKEY_USERS section. I am loathe to delete the user account and files since Guest is a special account.

Can someone suggest a course of action?

Thanks.

p.s. I typically keep the Guest account disabled, but I do enable it once or twice a month.

Temporary profile
As a previous post states, "Every now and then, when I log in, it says Loading Desktop instead of Welcome, and it logs me into a profile." But in my case, I have, unfortunately, a much worse situation :( You see, I had to keep a program file on the desktop of my main profile because it would...

I did not delete my profile, but whenever I log in to my account, it says: Welcome and then Preparing your desktop ...which I know it only does when a new account is being loaded. Then, I'm in the temp profile. My comp is activated, as it is the RTM. Why is it doing this? How can I fix this?...
