Hello,

My desktop (Dell XPS) has been running very slow the last few days. I started a Symantec av scan last night before I went to bed. This morning, when I tried to log in, it sould it could not find find my profile. This happened about 3 times. I shutdown the box and tried logging in again. I was able to log in, but windows thought I was a brand new user and loaded just the basic desktop. All of my files were "gone". As I investigated, I found that my original account (mark) wsa still there (with my files) but a new "temp user" was added. It appears that when I login as mark, it applies the temp user settings.

I have already run SuperAntiSpyware and ATF.

If you need more info, please let me know. I appreciate your help!

Mark

Go into Control Panel -> User Accounts. Make a new account, move all your stuff from the previous account and delete that account.
