My Desktop Broke RRS feed

  • Question

  • I attempted to split up a large file saved on the desktop and it split the file in to 6,000,000,000 I removed the files through msdos but the desktop is still frozen with no icons and explorer crashes often when I am opening folders.

    Is anyone able to help? Thank you.

    Hello,

     

    What you are going to have to do is rename or delete your old profile via another profile or msdos. Then load windows again.

     

    This will recreate the profile with the default user settings.

     

    This should fix your problem, please let me know.

    What I did was created a new profile in safe mode then renamed the old user account and gave the new user account the same name as the old one. In the \users directory there are two directories and the old one is completely empty. WTF? I told Vista to Keep Files when I removed the account.
