Temporary User Profile

By caroligugu ·
I have a laptop that when my administrative user logs in, a message presents saying that a user profile couldn't be found (one exists) and that a temporary user profile will be used. Further, any changes made to the temp profile will be lost at logout. I've never seen this event before - Don't know why this is happening? I've tried everything possible to manually create a user profile I even played with the environment variables and it did not resolve the issue. I really want to personalize my laptop and I can't. Please help!!

when the hard drive is out of space, check for free space on the hard drive.

rename the old profile and login again this will create a new profile the reconfigure the user setting...or copy the from old profile do not copy all of the profile as there is risk in duplicating corrupted files
