Windows 7: New files deleted after reboot

10 Jan 2013   #1

Windows 7 Enterprise 32bit
New files deleted after reboot

Windows loads up fine but when i shutdown and log in again it loads all previous files but no new or modified files. I thought my user account was corrupted so i created a new account. This worked but after the 2nd reboot a screen appeared before the login screen saying windows was configuring settings. After that the same problem emerged and i don't know how to fix it. Please help.

User Profile Error - Logged on with a Temporary Profile - Vista Forums


User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.
For now, you might see if doing a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this issue started may help.
