Lost Local Profile


G

Guest

Each time I now log in I have an error message telling me that "Windows
cannot load my local profile & is logging me in with a temporary profile".
This means that all my internet favourites & how i have set up the desktop is
lost each time I log off. Any files etc in my hard drive etc though are
unaffected. Can any one help?

Maybe your profile is corrupted. Create a differen logon
account, then see if the problem persists.

Db,

That tool removes old/redundant profiles & won't fix the issue in question
posted by the OP.

Pegasus, hit the nail on the head with his reply

The user can also check permissions on the profile folder at top level '[Drive
Letter]\Documents and Settings\[Username]' as these things happen when
permissions are lost.

Also, Norton Antivirus scans the users profile on shutdown, which sometimes
locks it & when you login again you get another profile created, as it's still
locked

Now, why that thing is not a built-in Windows service (or a critical
update),
Because there is no proven context. I was running WinXP RTM for a long
time before that tool was released and there were no profile damages.
There were some harmless entries in the event viewer only, that's all.
I will never understand. Excellent thing; I install it on all
my clients, without fail.
Doesn't harm and doesn't protect againt corrupted profiles. ;)

In an AD environment with roaming profiles & folder redirection & all that,
it's absolutely invaluable. I have had a gazillion problems with XP profiles
which are nearly all cleared up by installing & running this service.

Anyway, there are certainly a whole host of far-less-useful WU/MU things
deemed "critical updates." (!)

yes, thank you for
providing that information.

of course, once the profile
is corrupted then corrective
action must be taken, like that
suggested i read by pegasus.

i could have been a bit more
descriptive, but after the profile
is restored or repaired, then the
tool i suggested will likely
protect the system from that
problem occurring again.

thanks again....

Well, that's hard to believe and doesn't match my experience concerning AD.

No, not talking about that. I'm talking about actual profile corruption
problems.

Yep. However, the "User Profile Hive Cleanup Service" tool that you and others
were advertising in this thread prevents exactly this EventID 1517 and the similar
EventID 1524. No more, no less. See also (excerpt)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=1B286E6D-8912-4E18-B570-42470E2F3582&displaylang=en

| On Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 either event ids 1517 and 1524
| indicate the same profile unload problem.

Again, this fabulous tool doesn't avoid any profile *corruption* problems
and the installation doesn't harm either.

Dude. Why are you arguing with me, especially as you're agreeing that it
can't hurt to install it? I didn't run over your dog on the way to work this
morning, did I? :)

All I can tell you is that without this installed, I run into problems.With
it installed, I don't. Done, over, nuff said, quit.
