Windows 7: How to avoid 'You are logged on as a temporary profile' error reoccuri

How to avoid 'You are logged on as a temporary profile' error reoccuri

Hi there,
For the past 2 months, i have had re-occurring issues with logging onto my computer (windows 7 64 bit) and getting the error message 'you have been logged on with a temporary profile'. It got the the point where this was happening nearly every time i switched on, and had to do a system restore to get the computer working again. i spent hours reading forums and trying to fix the problem, but nothing worked with my limited computer knowledge. So i finally caved in and wiped the whole computer and have reinstalled everything. How do i stop this happening again. I have turned off windows automatic updates as it was mentioned it may be caused by an automatic update-is this advisable?
Thanks,
Kirsty

Hello Kirsty, and welcome to Seven Forums.

There's not one specific cause for this. However, to help avoid it getting this error, these tips may help:
  • Do not manually rename your C:\Users\(user-name) folder.
  • Do not move your user profile to another location. Leave it at it's default location.
  • Do not use registry cleaning programs, or the registry cleaning feature in a program.
