Microsoft is aware of some customers logging into temporary profile after installing KB4532693, on both versions 1903 and 1909.

  • Rebooting into Safe Mode* and then starting back in normal Mode should resolve this issue for most customers.

*To boot into Safe mode, Click Shift+Restart button on the login screen, select Advanced options>Startup Settings>Select 1 for the booting to safe mode. Restarting the computer should start the computer in normal mode. For booting into Safe mode, you would be asked for a password instead of a PIN if you have set.

Hello.  Sorry to post a random question here, but a bit new at this.  Just installed the latest Feb 2020 Windows 10 updates.  Upon completion it appears to have reset the display to default windows system.  That is, all custom icons missing, background returned to windows logo, would not recognise my logon, set a temp logon.

I had to uninstall the latest updates to return to previous good operation and display.  Any ideas?  FYI.  Two of my neighbors had the same issue and we had to uninstall this update.

Thank you for your time and support.


You are right it is happening to few users also it's not happening for the first time some of the users have faced this issue in previous updates.

I think it is Microsoft issue not your computer issue

Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.

By any chance, are any of the afflicted machines running Avira or AVG?

It's been implicated in the bug.

02-11-20 update trashed my surface today. What should I do?
No.  One machine had Kaspersky and the other had McAfee

"Does Microsoft even test these updates before they push them out"?

Sure they do... It worked on one old i3 with a 250 gb hd and 4gb ram - GOOD ENOUGH !!!

I just posted to the feedback hub.  Please advise what further detail information is needed.

TL;DR: Create a new local administrator account - Log in to that account - Fix the permissions of the original account's home folder - Restart - Log in to your original account

Same thing happened to me yesterday, after installing the latest updates and restarting, logging in to my account only led to a temp account with all settings reset to default (resolution, wallpaper, icons, edge account, etc) and a popup message "We can't sign in to your account" and that I should log in and out to resolve the problem as I would lose any data created while not being properly logged in. Doing that did not help, neither did restarting the machine or booting into safe mode or trying startup repair.

As most of the steps I tried came from this article: and I had tried them all up to moving to a new account, I decided that I had to indeed create a new account, copy my data over from my old one (that is non-system folders only) and manually change all the settings to how they were in my old account.

So I created a new administrator account after following the instructions from a link of the above article:

After logging in to this new local administrator account and trying to access the old account's folder to move the contents, I was denied access with an error message to continue in order to gain access (it is the one that has to do with wrong security permissions/ownership of the folder).

After clicking continue and waiting for a while, the folder opened with all of the account's contents intact.

Before continuing with the transition to the newly created account, I decided to give it a shot and restart just in case it was this permissions problem causing the account not to load correctly.

After restarting the original account loaded again without any problems.

So I just deleted the newly created local administrator account and Windows is back again to how it was before.

Hope this helps!

P.S.: The problem appeared on my laptop, my desktop did not have any problems with this update.

Thanks fir the details but to create an account i have to have access to the PC but it wont boot up ! I get messages on the blank screen such as “attempting to repair” or Errors have occurred” Tried advanced mode setting which i selected from a small menu. Same priblem when restarting. Im going to take the bix to my Geek Squad to get my machine sorted. Ell
