Windows - User Environment box

By egsiegmund ·
Two of these boxes pop up one stating that it cannot load the locally stored profile and the other states it is logging me on with a temporary profile. The desktop appears but any changes made, any new email or any bookmarks are lost when shutting down. I do not know how or where to correct this problem. I have found a hidden profile file containing email, bookmarks, address book etc but do not know where it should be so that it can be accessed by Netscape. I am using WindowsXPPro. Has anyone run into this problem?

Delete you user account. The next time you log in, the account will be recreated and the problem should go away.

You may want to backup data that exists in Documents and Settings prior to deleting the profile for all will be lost when you delete the profile

Changing the user account has fixed the problem. However I thought if I renamed the Profile file I would retain my bookmarks, email and email addresses
but those appear to have been lost. I searched for the renamed file including in hidden files but it could not be found.
