Question about HP Compaq Presario M2010US Notebook
I receive a weird error message at startup, it only stays up for about 25 seconds, so here is the gist of it: "User environment- Windows cannot load the locally stored profile because of insufficient security rights or corrupt local profile. A 1/0 operations initiated by registry failed." It then automatically takes me to a profile which is not mine, and it acts like it is a Guest Profile, i.e. prompts me to tour Windows XP, internet explorer does all of the prompts of a freshly downloaded program. Also, the PC is freezing up constantly for about 30 sec. Have done a disk defrag (but it defragged with errors) and an HDD self test (where I received the Test #2-07 failed message). The Hard drive is only about 4 months old (HP replaced it while it was still under warranty). The very last thing I did to my computer before I received the error messages was download LimeWire PRO, I do not know if this is related or not. I have uninstalled LimeWire PRO just in case. I set up a Guest account right know (not the one that I am automatically taken to on a normal startup), and the PC has stopped freezing. I would really rather not buy a new HD, since my warranty expired. Should I re-format, go to Geek Squad?? Help!
I would suggest that you restore your pc back to a previous date and see if the 30 second freeze ups go away. This has happened on a few of pc's i have had, but the reason i put it down to was a corrupt windows update or one of window malicious viral scans. Go to start>programmes>accesories>system tools and select system restore. When opened up choose a date previous to when this started happening or choose a date before the last updates or system check, only dark lettered dates can be restored the greyed out dates cannot.
