Windows loads temp user profile on every two reboots

hello. for some reason, since about two weeks ago, every two times I power my laptop on, windows fails to load the my user profile and greets me with the temp user profile where I can't access my files and such. however, if I reboot after that it loads my user profile sucessfully. but if I reboot again It loads the temp profile. I scanned unsing My antivirus, and it turned up no bad results. I then tried a disk check, but it only was on for less then 5 seconds when it just said "the disk is clean." i'm not sure what to do now. any suggestions? it's really irritataing having to constantly reboot every time i turn my laptop on.
thanks.

Hello Tailsy,

Have you recently renamed your user profile folder, or move your user profile to another location?

In the mean time, you might see if the tutorial below may be able to help with this error. Be sure to read all of it for all available options.

I found the registry entry, but it didn't end in .bak. I installed the latest round of windows updates and that didn't solve anything either.

As a test, create a new administrator account and log on to it to see if it does the same. If not, then you could use that account instead if you like.
