  • Hi,

    A temporary profile is issued each time that an error condition prevents the user's profile from loading. Temporary profiles are deleted at the end of each session, and changes made by the user to desktop settings and files are lost when the user logs off.

    A user profile consists of the following elements:

    1.A registry hive. The registry hive is the file NTuser.dat. The hive is loaded by the system at user logon, and it is mapped to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry key. The user's registry hive maintains the user's registry-based preferences and configuration.
    2.A set of profile folders stored in the file system. User-profile files are stored in the Profiles directory, on a folder per-user basis. The user-profile folder is a container for applications and other system components to populate with sub-folders, and per-user data such as documents and configuration files. Windows Explorer uses the user-profile folders extensively for such items as the user's Desktop, Start Menu and My Documents folder.

    We can perform the following method to resolve such issue:

    1. Restart your PC to release the locks on your profile.
    2. Log on with another administrative account
    3. Delete C:\Users\%username%
    4. Delete C:\Users\TEMP
    5. Delete the registry key matching your SID from
    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
    NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList". Check the value "ProfileImagePath" to make sure you pick your own profile.

    6. Restart once again.

  • Hi Magon

    Thanks for the reply I tried but I still can't.

    Basically I tried to use the default path which is in C:\users\%username% but after I change from DAT to MAN in adminstrator sitll can remove or add in new icon/ shortcut when I login as normal user.

    Second time I tried to change the ProfileImagePath to F:\Profile\%username% you're referring to. After restart the system prompt again saying that I am log into temporary profile.

    HELP HELP I need to get an solution =(

    Regards

    Eric
