This sounds like an operating system glitch. Enter safe mode at start up by pressing F8. Once in safe mode, log on as administrator and do a system restore to a point that you recall it allowing you to log onto your profile. This should cure it, if not, let me know and we'll try something else.

You have been logged on with a temporary profile. You cannot access your files and files created in this profile will be deleted when you log off. To fix this, log off and try logging on later. Please


Under assumptions your are trying to logon to a networked machine which requires that PC to contact a server to download your account.

now if this PC has been disconnected from the network but still has your temporary user profile stored on it, you can still log on but only as a temp user.

to solve this make sure your connected to the network either through wireless or wired.

USER PROFILE WILL NOT LOAD


This is way too vague a problem description to be able to even make a suggestion.

What kind of Laptop?
What operating system?
Any problems getting to the login screen?
Are you able to log in, but not load the profile; or not log in at all?
Is this after starting a machine that was off, after logging off and back on, or when trying to switch users?
Are you logging on with a local account or a domain/network account?
How many profiles are on the PC?
How much space is available on the HDD?
Does it load a temporary profile, or just error-out?

How to get computer off a tempory profile


which operating system ?

Every time that you log on to a Windows Vista-based computer that is connected to a domain, a temporary user profile is created.


When you log off the computer, the user profile is deleted.

This behavior usually occurs because the account that you use to log on to the computer is a member of one or more of the following groups:
•Guests
•Domain Guests

If this is a school/work computer then this is most likely the way the NetAdmin has set it up.

If this is your home computer then a temporary user profile is issued each time an error condition prevents the user's profile from loading.


You may encounter profile issues if you log on with a user in the Guests group.

You need to remove the user in question from the local Guests or "Domain guests" group and that should do it.

1. Click Start

2. Right click Computer and Select Manage

3. Select Local Users and Groups > Groups

4. Double click Guests

5. Check if the user that is having the issue is a member of the Guests group

6. If so, remove the user from the Guests group

7. Log off the workstation and log back on

8. Verify the profile is now local

Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully.

For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it.


Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.


a. Log on to the system by using an administrative user account other than the user account that is experiencing the problem.


b. Back up all data in the current users profile folder if the profile folder still exists, and then delete the profile folder. By default, the profile resides in the following location:

%SystemDrive%\Users\UserName


c. ClickStart, typeregedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

d. Locate the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList


e. Under the ProfileList subkey, delete the subkey that is named SID.bak.

Note SID is a placeholder for the security identifier (SID) of the user account that is experiencing the problem.


The SID.bak subkey should contain a ProfileImagePath registry entry that points to the original profile folder of the user account that is experiencing the problem.

f. Exit Registry Editor.

g. Log off the system.

h. Log on to the system again.

After you log on to the system, the profile folder is re-created

Rough. Alright, might have your back on this one. So, did you type in your log-in name and leave the password field blank and click "OK"? If that didn't work, there is another option. Instead of entering "Repair My Computer" choose "Safe Mode". Often times, there is a hidden administrator account on some systems that doesn't have a password. If you only see your profile listed when you get to the log in screen, then shut it down and restart. If you do see the administrator account log in and delete the user account. If you only saw your profile listed, log in to Windows in normal mode and check the Start>All Programs list for an Acer Recover Utility that might allow you to begin the process from within windows.

Inability to load personal profile


Make sure Windows has been activated. If so, try to create another profile with Admin privileges. Is the computer infected with a virus. Some viruses, spyware or malware will deny access to your profile. Have a professional Computer tech try to scan for viruses.
