When I turn my computer on and get to the Welcome screen, it won't load my profile correctly. It says there is some error and it puts me on a temporary profile. Does anybody know how to get the profiles working correctly?

Hello Maddawgax,
What does the error say, and can you start your account through safe mode? (restart the PC and press or hold the f8 key until you hear a few beeps, for most computers) Run ChkDsk (start>run>chkdsk.exe) to see if any files are corrupt.

Get on what? :) The computer itself? But it's giving you temp profile every time correct? That problem is usually caused by an error in a file or registry key. You can do the chkdsk or create a new file, and transfer the files from the other account to the new one.
