Windows 7: Preparing Your Desktop User profile corrupted, TEMP User

Windows 7 Ultimare 32-bit
Preparing Your Desktop User profile corrupted, TEMP User

Hi! I'm using a Neo netbook, running Windows Ultimate 32-bit. I found out that my user profile got corrupted after a forced shut down (the battery doesn't work and the power went out causing it to shut down). The Welcome screen goes on for minutes, then "Preparing Your Desktop" appears and when it finally starts, Windows says that I've logged on with a temporary profile and that files will be deleted when I log off. Of course I've searched about this on the web and tried the REGEDIT method wherein I renamed the .bak file or something. I also tried making a new user profile, but the problem is, the new user that I created also seemed to be temporary, like, when I save a file, it will disappear after a reboot. Does anyone know any other method to fix this? Thank you in advance!

Hello Georgia Rose, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened may be able to fix this for you.

Hope this helps for now,
