rebuilding a user profile when in Steady State RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a corrupt profile on one of our children computers which I'm told is a normal part of using Windows. I was told I just need to rename the old profile, restart the computer and log back in. The new profile will be like a new user and I can use to old profile to transfer the settings back to the new profile.  Do I turn off Steady State for this profile before I proceed, or, if I need to, when during the process should I turn it off and back on.  Since we have Steady State on this machine will I need to rebuild the new profile or will the files come back to it because we use Steady State?  (As you can tell I'm a newbie.)  TIA.  Steve Hartung, Pamunkey Regional Library

  • Hi,


    You needn’t to turn off WSS, you can rename the corrupted profile, then login again. A new profile will be created.
