Being logged in to Windows 7 with a temporary profile

I switched on my PC and when I entered my password to log in I was told that I was being logged in with a temporary profile because my real one was unavailable. Logging out and back in again appears to have solved the problem for now. I've seen this problem in the Vista forums, but not Windows 7. Any ideas what's going on ?

Hello,

Thank you for your input.

I hope that your suggestions may help other community members to resolve similar issues.

I appreciate your efforts.

However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
