Windows 7: Windows 7 logging me into a temporary profile

Little update on my situation; with hours and hours of tinkering all night I've got my computer clean of a Trojan (which I believe was the root cause of most of my problems) and also got Windows Update and Firewall working perfectly fine once again. My system seems completely clean now, I have done a complete scan since and nothing has been detected.

Despite this, windows still logs me into a temp profile after I restart. I really don't know what's causing this mess, but it's my last remaining problem.

I will try this though, hopefully it may detect something I'm missing, but I no longer think it's the work of a virus or malware or whatever.

Once you are sure your system is clean, you might give the tutorial below a try again to see if it may help now. Be sure to read all of it for all available options.

This says it applies for Windows Vista, would this tutorial work on Windows 7 also?

Yes, it's for both Vista and Windows 7 as stated in the tutorial.

Ah, I see, I've tried this one before and it's never worked for me.

Even now it doesn't, it's took me hours getting back onto my account (i've had to switch my computer on and off a lot of times).

Thank you for the help though; any other possibilities?

You could do a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before all of this started.
