How to see your public profile on Fixya?

I can see my personal profile when I am logged in, and I see other user's public profiles. How do I see my own public profile, even if i log out or in?

    Now, with a recent release, users CAN see what their public profile looks like, just like other users could see before. now, users can see their profile by clicking on their profile icon at the top upper right corner, and choosing "My Profile"...this shows you your public profile, while "my Account" shows what users used to see as their profile.

Hi Wallace - As of todya, you cannot view your own public profile when signed in. You can however sign out and then visit your profile page: http://www.fixya.com/users/wallace-waffle-764

Hope that helps!

    There was a new update last week. You can now view your public profile by signing in and clicking on your avatar at the top right of the screen. In the dropdown, click on the My Profile link to view your public profile.

Toshiba Satallite c660 does not recgonise my profile or password


Hi

If you have forgotten your password then you will not have access to your profile as thay are linked.

You can get round this if you have an administrator account configured log on with this make a new user profile, log out of admin log on to your new user account to set up a new profile, log out and back on as admin, you should then have access to all the profiles in the use folder you can then copy documents from the old profile to the new one. log back on with the new password and user name combo and you should have all your stuff back

How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile


This article describes how to copy user data from your Windows XP profile to a new profile.
When you copy user data into a new profile, the new profile becomes a near duplicate of the old profile, and contains the same preferences, appearance, and documents as the old profile. If your old profile is corrupted in some way, you can move the files and settings from the corrupt profile to a new profile.
Note The method that is described in this article may not transfer the Outlook Express e-mail messages and address user data that are associated with the user profile where you are transferring data from. When you delete the old profile, you may delete that data if it you do not first transfer it by using other methods. For more information about transferring Outlook Express user data, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

On the Latitude D800 when I boot up and enter my Log in Password, it says that it cannot find my personal profile and logs me into the computer using temporary settings. All my personal saved profile


Your Windows profile is likely corrupted. That doesn't mean your files are gone. Your profile is stored on the C: drive in part in two locations (I am assuming Windows 7) It is stored in C:\USERS\<LOGIN ID> is where you will find your files (Like your My Documents, Favorites, and Desktop icons) Many of your settings will be stored in the registry in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive.

Basically, I would rebuild your profile, but BACK UP YOUR FILES FIRST!!!!! the way you rebuild your profile, is to delete the files and login again. Windows will act like you have never logged in before and create a new profile folder.

So ....the way you do it, is .... Login to the Administrator account in Windows 7.

Browse to C:\USERS folder. Make a back up copy of the folder that has the name of your Login ID.

Rename the <Login ID> folder to something Like <LoginID>OLD or whatever.

reboot your machine

login again using your credentials.

if that doesnt work, as long as you have backed up files, try going into control panel and creating a NEW user and login using that.

Then copy your important files back. (My documents, my music, etc) Don't copy the whole profile folder because you may copy whatever was corrupted right back. Just copy back the files you need.

Sad to think people can post rude, crude and ugly remarks on face book for everyone to see just because they are angry. A recent post about my deceased father was uncalled for and these remarks should be...


There are rules that facebook is implementing for proper posting of message on the users wall especially if its public viewed. If you find some racism or hate speech posted on a wall of a certain person and it is shown in public, there are 3 ways where you can stop (or possibly block) this person from using their facebook account.
1. If the person turns on you, you can block him/her from seeing your profile or interacting with you in any way. On the Account menu, select Private Setting. From the Block list, click Edit list. You can type in the name or the email address of the user you want to block and click the Block This User button.
2. If the person is posting hate speech or indecent words against another person (in your case, your father) report his profile with his hate speech attached to your report. On your homepage, click the name of the person that post the hate speech comment, to go directly to his profile page. Find on the lower left part of his page the Report/Block this Person button, click it. Leave a check on the two box associated with Report this person. Choose the reason that best describe his/her remarks. Choose the locations where the remarks is posted and click the link. Leave a check on the box associated with it and click Report.
3. If a link was posted directly from your wall, you can check your e-mail inbox and find the mail associated with that remarks. On that message you will find a link to Block that person.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Dell Studio Laptop- Cannot Log On Message- User Profile Service Failed Log on User Profile cannot be loaded


I had one case like this before where there was another user on the machine who loaded the user profile hive in the registry and then forgot to unload it. Therefore when the user tried to log in, it gave them the message just like yours because it's "in use" by the registry. If there is another user on your machine, please ensure that this person unloaded the hive in the registry. And then try logging in again. Please let me know if the problem persists. If my suggestion works, please do rate me. Thanks.

The computer won't log me on.


Make a backup copy of all your data, including passwords, emails, settings, etc

Find another windows xp computer whether its a friends or another computer you have and get a memory stick or external hard drive ( which you will need ) on the working computer go into

c:\documents and settings

make a copy of the default user folder and copy that over the one on your laptop and try again.

I rebooted my system in 'safe mode' (which allowed me to login as
administrator), moved my files to the public area, and then deleted my
profile (using the Users option in Control Panel).

When I rebooted again, in normal mode, I could login as administrator, and
then moved my files back and rebuilt my profile manually.

The only problem was my forgetting about e-mail messages, which I did not
backup and have been lost permanently. Ug!!!

L350-170 Logon Failure


Sounds like profile corruption or virus problem. Try restarting the machine and tapping f8 until menu appears. Go into safe mode then logon as administrator. If you can get into windows, go to control panel then user accounts. Create new user account then restart machine. Log on using new user account and copy all personal files/folders to new user account.

Error code 80070005


ngkimfatt:
It could be Permissions problem, try assigning full admin rights to the person logging in on the local computer and then try logging into hotmail if this does not help:
You have to delete the local profile of the person who is trying to logon to hotmail. To delete the profile:
log on to the local computer as an administrator, (you might have to restart the machine before doing this to release any profiles).
-go to c drive, documents and settings, simply delete the profile of the person who is trying to log onto hotmail.
-Make another user or the same username, assign appropriate rights and log on, you will be fine.
NOTE: I FULLY RECOMMEND TO PLEASE BACKUP ANY IMPORTANT DATA FROM C DRIVE OF THAT PERSON'S PROFILE TO ANOTHER PLACE LIKE D DRIVE OR SOMEWHERE ELSE.
