|i know this question has been repeatedly asked, but upon initial research into the matter, i found my problem to be a little different. so here goes. i left my computer running on idle for the past 24 hours and the 1st thing i did when i saw this was to turn it off. this happened normally. now, 2 hours later, when i turned it back on, i found startup to be slow and after windows had initialised i got a user environment msg saying that 'windows cannot load locally saved profile bcz of insufficient security rights or corrupt local profile. an I/O operation failed etc' THIS IS IN A 30 SECOND WINDOW. then another window came up to say that a temp profile was being loaded. THIS WAS ALSO A 30 SECOND WINDOW. upto this point i have described the same problem that so many other people have had. now the differences start here.|
- i have only 1 original user account as only i use this pc
- i find myself in a temp account with half my files lost! i just cant seem to find them.
- everytime i restart the same thing happens
-half the icons on my desktop are missing
-the pc hangs
- i have 4 drives(c,d,e,f). for some inexplicable reason, i cant access drive F because the pc says it is not formatted.
I think i can deal with the unformatted drive later. what i really need help with is how to fix this temp profile situation. any help would be greatly appreciated.
