We have a system with Windows 7 Embedded. It's got Microsoft Security Essentials 22.214.171.124 installed. Automatic Windows Updates are disabled, and the last updates were installed last year in April. Suddenly systems have started to load with temporary profiles. They recover on the next power cycle, but after a few more they load back into temporary profiles.
At one point we got a message that
c:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop refers to a location that is unavailable . it could be on hard drive on this computer or network....... When I went to this location there was no desktop folder.
Also one of the solutions were to change the ownership of the
c:\users\admin user from system to admin, but still no luck.
It's randomly loading and there is no set of steps to follow. Any ideas what can be the reason, how to fix it, root cause, any advice? We have been using this OS since last year for our application and this problem suddenly started to show up now.
