My computer was workin just fine untill i recently started it up. Everything seemned just fine untill i logged on to my acount. When i did i message came up saying ...

Windows Cannot load profile because it may be corrupted.

Then it would give me a option to continue so i clicked on it and it puts me in a temp - acount.

When it was done loading it very slowly i got a error message stating .....


Advanced INF Install
%REMOVE_NODIR_ERROR%


The way im able to post this is that i turned my computer off manually and restarted and logged onto the second acount which seems to work fine.

What I suggest you do is go into SAFE MODE (reboot your computer and tap F8 about once a second until the screen displays the option for you to log into safe mode). Then log in as the ADMINISTRATOR. Then once logged in, go to START-->CONTROL PANEL and double-click USER ACCOUNTS. Highlight the account that isn't working properly and click DELETE THE ACCOUNT. On the next screen select KEEP FILES, and then on the next screen click DELETE ACCOUNT. Then once it's deleted, click on CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT and enter the name you used for the last account. Follow the prompts to create the account. Once it's created, go to your desktop and find the folder labeled with the name of your account, right click on it and select CUT. Then double click MY COMPUTER, double-click on the C: Drive. Then select EDIT up at the top of the window and choose PASTE. Then reboot your machine. If you are now able to log in normally without errors, go back to the C: drive in MY COMPUTER and open the folder with the name of your account, and copy the files from the DESKTOP and MY DOCUMENTS folders to their respective places on your computer, being copy the DESKTOP stuff back onto your desktop and the MY DOCUMENTS stuff back into your my documents for this account.

Post back how things went.

In addition to the files\folders Fenor has asked you to copy there are also some more important file, like: Ntuser.dat, Ntuser.dat.log & Ntuser.ini.
For more details refer:

Try a windows repair. It might get your account back normal.

Hey darth_ash,

Those are the only three files the user is NOT supposed to copy over to the new account, according to the link you gave.

Have you tried tapping F8 at startup to get the bootmenu, and then choose "Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)"?

If that doesn't work, try booting to safe mode, and try a system restore to a date before the problem began.
