My Hp laptop has been showing pop ups showing that I am logged on with a temporary profile. How do I go about this problem because it keeps on creating for me a new desktop which is inconveniencing me a lot. I have even tried logging off as suggested but all in vain. Please help, thanks in advance.
Your profile (located under C:\Users\user_name) is corrupted. There is another chance which is a delay in reading your profile files due to Antivirus scan or something else during boot up. Usually after typing your user name and password Windows tries to read and load your profile, if it gets corrupted or delay in reading, Windows will load with temp profile to give temporary access on computer.
1. Simply reboot
2. Rename to profilename.old
3. Deleted the .bak under ProfileID in registry
. Start registry editor by typing regedit in run\find box of Windows 7.
. Go into the registry and delete the effected profile's subfolder under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
4. Deleted profile under System Properties
Go to Advanced settings of System , click on Settings (user profiles), select the corrupted user profile which is not loading properly in Windows 7, then press Delete button. Delete button will be enabled only if you login with different user account.
