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

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.

Collapse this imageExpand this imageIf you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.


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

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.

I have a dell latitude d610 lap top


Based on the build of a D610, I am assuming you're running Windows XP. I'm not sure your hardware can support Vista. That model was built before Vista was available.

That said, go to Start-Control Panel-User Accounts. Most likely a setting in there was changed, and my first thought is that it may have been after a Windows Update, in an effort to increase security.

See if the user you're trying to login with even shows on the list. If it does, click on it and change the password to <blank>.

If that user no longer shows then you will have to rebuild the profile for that user. I will caution you that if you have to rebuild the profile, you would want to make copies of the data attached to the old profile. You can do this from Windows Explorer. Start by making sure you can view all files. Then navigate to Local Disk C:-Documents and Settings, then to the folder for that username. Copy all of the folders and files to a safe place, like burn it to CD's or DVD's, or even to a flash drive. Do not save it to My Documents.

Sometimes the fastest way to rebuild the profile is to actually create a new one. Set it to administrator access. Then you can copy the contents of your old user's folders (but not the folders themselves) into the new user's folders.

Here's a recap:

Create a New User Profile in Windows XP

1. Log in as admin or an account with admin permissions.
2. Select the windows START button and click CONTROL PANEL
3. Click USER ACCOUNTS
4. Select CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT. You may need to select pick a task first
5. Type in a new name for the account
6. Click create account and ensure it is an admin account.
Copy Files to the New User Profile

1. Log on as a user other than the user whose profile you are copying files to or from.
2. In Windows Explorer, click Tools, click Folder Options, click the View tab, click Show hidden files and folders, click to clear the Hide protected operating system files check box, and then click OK.
3. Locate the C:\Documents and Settings\Old_Username folder, where C is the drive on which Windows XP is installed, and Old_Username is the name of the profile you want to copy user data from.
4. Press and hold down the CTRL key while you click each file and subfolder in this folder, except the following files: Ntuser.dat, Ntuser.dat.log, Ntuser.ini
5. On the Edit menu, click Copy.
6. Locate the C:\Documents and Settings\New_Username folder, where C is the drive on which Windows XP is installed, and New_Username is the name of the user profile that you created in the "Create a New User Profile" section.
7. On the Edit menu, click Paste.
8. Log off the computer, and then log on as the new user.
