as of me these can be the have a look on these...
Entirely possible. It may also be an issue with the RC. I never had it with the Beta. It's not a big deal, so I will wait until RTM comes out, and hopefully the problem with be gone.

I have had this problem for a couple of months now , but have been using Windows7 for >3 years

I have exactly the same synario : switch computer on; message says arranging desk top ( or some such) then the message you have been logged in with a temporary profile and some file may not be accessible.

If I do a ctrli.alt .delt and choose a new user t does not cure the problen ... often shutting down and restarting does not cure it either ...... HOWEVER, if I alt.del.ctrl and LOG OFF the I do get the usual desktop I am used to and every thing is OK .....This occurs completely at random . I can go days with out it occuring and the it can happen twice in one day

I hope this helps temporarily ...... do a CTRL.ALT.DELT and log off and the computer will revert to your normal system/profile with out having to switch off

If any one has apermanent answer please let me know Also what is RTM?

My issue was resolved with the RTM release (I got mine in August). If you are not running RTM, then that is my first recommendation.

If you are, then open up command prompt (run as admin) and type this:
sfc /scannow

I have this random start up problem also .Login temp profile. it only started about three months ago and I have been using W7 for about 3 years ...
So! what is RTM please and how do I get it?
BTW a short fix is ctrl alt del and log off your correct profile then loads automatically
