Windows 7: Windows update KB890830 and my windows login

Windows update KB890830 and my windows login

Something strange has happened to my laptop since yesterday. I normally hibernate my laptop and about once per week shut it down. Upon rebooting I have noticed two strange things:-

1). When I log in I get the following message: "You have been logged on with the default profile for the system. Please see the event log for details".

Ack, what has happened. I am using my log in and password and it's being accepted, but now I appear to be using some kind of system profile and not my users profile. Therefore, all my shortcuts have gone, I can't log into Outlook because that isn't configured. Trying to work out what has gone wrong and why windows is not logging me in as me. I can still see my users directory and all the files.

Any help on the above would be much appreciated since this is my work laptop and I really need to get this fixed ASAP. I am self employed so I don't have an IT department to turn too

2). Windows update (September 2013) KB890830 seems to be in a continuous loop of installing. Right now I can see it has been installed 9 times and another install waiting for a reboot.

Are the 2 items related?

If anyone can advise me how to resolve these issues I would be very grateful indeed.

Hello Dave, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if doing a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before you had this issue may be able to quickly fix this for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
