Roy:

I highlighted s 1 5 21 xxxxxx 1003
And.... Reg Expand is C:\Users\Didi (My wife!!!).

I believe s 1 5 21 xxxxxx's 1000 is the profile I should be using ???

Unless Roy's suspicion is correct..
Perhaps a few photos/screenshots of login screen/netplwiz/regedit with the profilelist open?

Don't believe that would help solve my problem.

The login screen has two "names".
Mine and my wife's.

I click on my name and my desktop opens in all its glory.
I click on "Bookmarks" and all my previous bookmarks are gone.

Everything else works ok.

I need to know how I can change my "profile" to:
  • s 1 5 21 xxxxxx's 1000
instead of:
  • s 1 5 21 xxxxxx's 1003
Roy:
Can you guide me ?

Actually, she now has her own computer (Laptop)

Logging in as her would make the problem worse.
Her home-page and book-marks are different from mine.

Which browser? Certain browser's bookmarks are easier to hunt down and copy from one folder into another folder.

Hi Class,
follow this MS link.

To be on the safe side do it in 2 parts.
Dissable it first, run for a couple of days, then if everythings working delete it.

Hi Roy !

This looks-like it may be the solution.
Thank You !
I get nervous when modifying the registry so... so I'll mull it over for awhile.

By:
"then if everythings working delete it.".

I believe I simply would delete the backed-up registry file?
