Windows 7: You have been logged into a temporary profile

It didn't work

I purchased the registry cleaner, and I am still having the same problem. Things were working fine on my netbook until I created two more user accounts in windows. After that, every time I log in to my main account, I get the message about logging in with a temporary profile. Help?

Welcome to the forums. Try sfc /scannow.

Thanks

Thanks for the response. I am not sure what sfc /scannow is, but I would bet it is a program I could find. I ended up deleting the account and starting another one. That seems to have taken care of the problem.

Thanks again.

To run the scan, run cmd.exe as admin, and type this:

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Code:
sfc /scannow

also do a check disk...
open a elevated command prompt and type this (if C: is not the windows drive letter then change it to what it should be)
chkdsk C: /R
and press enter
that should look around and check your disk for bad sector unreable files and such
this might be a early sign of file corruption and a small chance of this HDD corruption.

I know this is 5 months old now, but did you manage to get a fix for it?
Same problem on my test pc.
First off, I dont suppose you've set yourself up on your own domain? Im getting the same error when using a test account, but my main account seems fine. Both are domain users.
I've got to get it working as a proof of concept that folder redirection works via domain gpo.

I can reproduce the "temporary profile" problem without fail.

Laptop power off.
Plug in verizon usb stick.
Laptop power on
Problem occurs.

Laptop power off.
Remove verizon usb.
Laptop power on.
After windows starts up, then:
Insert verizon usb stick.
Null Problemo!

If I remember correctly, I also produced the same problem when I had the bios set to boot first from USB (which I don't now), and had a non-bootable external drive attached.

In both cases, we note that the problem is / was USB-related.

Hopefully this helps some.

Tried all these items and finally figured out what my issue was. Hope it helps.
Repeatedly logging in one particular user into temp profile on brand new computer. Tried another user on that computer = no issue. Tried that use on another computer = having issue again. This user has been in our client's domain for years, with no reported issues. Upon reviewing AD account further, found that someone had set her Profile Path: incorrectly. They had entered the name of the login script into this field instead. The Win7 box was attempting to save the profile elsewhere, but could not. Removed from Profile Path: option and placed in login script area, and issue fixed.

You have been logged on with a temporary profile

Found a resolution the issue where I could not logon with a permanent profile. Note sure what caused it, but went into the USER profile section, deleted all the extraneous profiles not in use and then tried to delete my company\user profile. Would not let the local machine account do that nor the master domain admin. But was able to rename my user.domain profile to OLDuser.domain.

Then the next time I logged on, it didn't see a conflict with the old corrupted profile and the new profile it wanted to save, and I was able to logon just fine. So if you can't clear that old corrupted profile out, just rename it. It might work for you like it did for me.
