Bill,
Have we been all talking around each other?

Your specs reference one machine.
Your original post references another machine.

Have you been running the programs, etc on your machine or the Vista machine?

I have been running the tests on the Vista (problem) machine.

My NTUSER.DAT is in C:\USERS\(username)\

We may be in a "catch 22" situation here.

I would like for you to determine your Powershell version.

# To determine your Powershell version:
# Run PowerShell
# enter $host.version
# you should see at least:
# Major Minor Build Revision
# ----- ----- ----- --------
# 2 0 -1 -1

What version are you showing?

Excellent. Now I'm going to give you a short powershell script to run.

Just run powershell as admin and enter following:
dir "c:\windows\serviceprofiles\networkservice\ntuser.*" -fo:$true -ea silentlycontinue > $env:userprofile\desktop\ntuser.txt


That will put a file called 'ntuser.txt' on your desktop.

you can now enter following command
EXIT

Upload the ntuser.txt

thanks, karl

definitely corruption.

I won't even venture a guess as how to fix this corruption.

My only suggestion at this point is to backup all data dear to your heart and to reinstall.

If you decide upon this approach, then let us know before you start on any install or reinstall.

You might want to consider purchasing an OEM Build version of Win 7 and installing that since this will be an install on a machine of yours and for you.
The oem versions are considerably cheaper. I also recommend the Ultimate as there are just little things like multi-languages, the LUSRMGR.MSC which isn't available on normal versions.

Thank you both sincerely and with great appreciation for the time you spent on my problem. I really hate loose ends and unsolved puzzles ... so I wish I knew what could have done this to my system from Windows Update.

As stated above, this is an older laptop computer that I keep just for emergencies and backup.

I reinstalled from scratch less than a year ago (I think) and have run regular updates and virus checks and backed up some files to the computer, but have never used it regularly for any work since the reinstall.

So, it's really mystifying and a little maddening.

It's a Toshiba and came with Toshiba's own version of Vista. I don't like this computer well enough to buy Windows 7 for it so I'll probably just reinstall the original OS ... and see what happens.

Again, I sincerely appreciate you kindness and helpfulness.

Best wishes to you both,
Bill
