    Pregunta

  • Hi,

    I am trying to get find what could be the reason that we have users profile that gets corrupted where as inside the user profile folder the "windows folder" looks like a notepad after it gets corrupted. Is there any reason why this happens and what is the resolution for this?

    Appreciate your response or input.

    thanks in advance!

  • There could be many unknown reasons. One of the reason which I think could cause profile corruption is dirty shutdowns ( hard boots ).  One more reason which I suspect: abruptly closed application's connection with registry keys.

    Thanks !

  • Are there other symptoms or is shortcut icons the only issue?

  • First of all disable any antivirus on the server and test again.

  • Hi,

    It looks like the file association is corrupted.

    Please backup the registry and try to import the default associations for File Folders from the following link to check the result:

    If it does not work, please create a new user and copy the user profile to the new user account.

  • Thanks to everyone. It makes sense with all your answers. I have never seen such type of corruption on Win2K3. I know profiles gets corrupted which is not uncommon, but to the extent where the users daily complain that they cannot access application it is something which I was surprised.

    Let me try all your suggestions and let you all know what is the outcome. Again thank you all for your response and I did not check the forum for very long.
