    Doing so will get you results that you are having now.

    But right now my old files are just in a normal folder on c:\ drive (not users folder). I have no user profiles as I deleted them all in safe mode. How come the root admin account with nothing on it is giving me problems like this. Also, do you know what I could do?

    Thanks for the help by the way it honestly means a lot and if there's anything I can do for you let me know, please!

    It may have been corrupted when moving the files like that.

    I would recommend to do a clean install of Windows.

    You could try a repair install, but since user profiles are not affected by it, I don't think it will help.

    Once you have multiple user profiles corrupted like that, it's almost impossible to straighten them out.

    But i only have one user profile ATM and its the admin one. Making fresh users gives the same problem which makes Mr think its more of a corruption in the system files rather than user profiles itself. Because the users log on and all its just explorer.exe freezes and stops everything working.
    Sorry to seem a bit like an annoyance but its just a fresh install is a last option for me as I currently have nowhere to back up my 120gb old user profile and the files on it which I need, other than on my laptop itself

    Sorry, but when it's that corrupted, usually only a clean install will help.

    If needed, external hard drives are pretty cheap these days to use to back up to.

    OK well.. I restarted with configuring msconfig to start the same services as safe mode and it logs in fine on normal boot and everything is functioning. Does this change anything and help you narrow down the problem?

    You might create a new user account to see if it works properly when running normally.

    In addition, you might see if this below may be able to help to ID what may be causing the issue.

    Hey - update.

    So I had football for a few hours and since once the repair process is started no additional dialogs form, I thought I'd just try a windows repair.
    y
    Success - everythings fine now.

    Now I just need to transfer the files over. I've transferred slowly bits by bits from C:\ drive to C:\Users\{User}

    So far everything's transferred fine and I logged in after transferring all my old files except AppData - Everything seems to be working a charm with no permission errors or anything so far.

    However, my application data and folders meant a lot so I really need to transfer those, so I'm going to try transferring the AppData folder now.

    If that causes problems, I'll know it's definitely appdata at the root of my problems and I can do the whole process over once more just having to give up my application data and start over.

    I'll update! :) Thanks for the help so far.
