Windows 7: Login routes me to temporary profile

Login routes me to temporary profile

I was runnning into some external problems today with internet (a site that was getting overloaded all the time), so I decided to restart my laptop because internet was starting to lag alltogether

When I rebooted, I went to enter my password, and it sent me straight to a temporary profile. I can still access my files, but it's really annoying with all the detours I have to take.

I tried to resolve it following the steps I got from my own 'help' in on my laptop (like that ever works), but I was getting nowhere. Anybody any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

So for now, thanks and I'll let you know whether the solution worked for me.

Hey Shawn (or anybody who reads this).

I went out and bought an external hard drive yesterday, to back up the files I needed to make those changes. Before I did that though, I decided to clean up that file, and remove all files I didn't need.

So this morning, when I wanted to start, I noticed the problems had disappeared. Is this a problem that could be brought on by a corrupted file?

Thanks again

That's great news Lasse.

A temporary profile error can be caused by a number of different issues, so it would be hard to say an exact cause. Corrupted files could be one of them.
