User Environment error

On boot I get the following error message: "Windows cannot load the locally
stored profile. Insufficient security rights or a local corrupt file. Cannot
find local profile." Not verbatim but then it creates a temp profile and
logs me on. Not sure what to do. I have ERNDT on the machine and went back
to the 4-18-2009 registry backup but that did not help. Same result. XP Home
Edition. Thanks, Steve T.

I got that but my desktop, quick launch, systray, etc. appear all from the
first install and run of XP. Steve T.

How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile in
Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=811151

Before you do this you should check to make sure that you have Full
Control on your old profile folder, the profile is likely corrupt but
this could be a simple permissions issue on your profile folder.

This is the support document that I followed and got it all working,
including the e-mail and address book but the other stuff like my desktop
and all remain "empty". I can recreate it all, albeit slowly; but I thought
there was a setting that I had missed copying. Thanks, Steve T.
