Sometimes, when I log on, a box appears that says "cannot find locally stored profile" and the computer starts in what appears to be a new user, with the very basic start-up page. I reboot the computer and it finds my profile, starting up as normal.

However, today I have done this and it continally fails to find my profile, logging me onto the basic start-up page.

I had a problem a while ago that required me to create another profile as I could not access the internet via my normal profile. After that problem was fixed, I removed the new profile and now only have one profile. So, I don't know how or why this has happened or, indeed, how to fix it?

I managed to fix this in the end. The microsoft page definately helped. It proved tricky trying to copy and paste because I didn't have the room on my hard drive to accomodate it and it was taking a long, long time as well. In the end, I simply cut and paste files and folders from the corrupt account into a new account and that made things a lot, lot easier and quicker. Problem fixed. Thanks.
