Tutorial just gives a temporary solution.The problem will return back.

Create a test account and boot into it

We need to rename the corrupted user profile from corrupted to corrupted.old

c:\users\corrupted to c:\users\corrupted.old

Delete the profile list key of corrupted account

Boot into the corrupted account.Log off again and boot into test account

This should recreate a profile list key and folder for corrupted account.

Copy the NTUSER.DAT file from c:\users\corrupted to c:\users\corrupted.old

Delete the CORRUPTED user folder and rename corrupted.old to corrupted and boot back into corrupted user account.

i've done what you've suggested, my profile account started to work again, but it was very slow in processing, everything was going very slow, even the new account that i've created was very slow, everything was hanging..it was not as before..so i've backup all my documents, and format the windows completely, now the pc is working perfectly,
thanks for the suggestions..
