Win7 REFUSES to login to newly created user account, logged in as admin creating 2nd admin account. The account creates fine, but always goes into a "roaming profile" login. Have deleted, and re-created with a new name, etc. Having failed every other way, enabled the "Administrator" account from the command line.
Same thing. "Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off"
**OS is refusing to create the new account profile at C:\users\blablabla ** but the why and how of this (much less how to fix it) are beyond google
I've googled every single error in eventlog... such as:
Windows cannot copy file \\?\C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\ to location \\?\C:\Users\TEMP\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\. This error may be caused by network problems or insufficient security rights.
(and many such relating to file creation of the new profile)
Have looked at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList (the new profile, nor the administrators profile, showing up here)
Have done "cacls c:\Users /g everyone:F"
Have enabled all the "services" (many of which I usually turn off for simplicity sake, but this has never been a problem in the past)
Nothings working. I really dont want to have to install 7 (only 2 weeks old install) I'd like to prevent this happening again, I've installed this OS about 50 times, 5 on this h/w, never had this one before...
Any fix other than re-install (the recovery disk didn't help either LOL) would be welcome.
THANKS FOR RESPONSES -- Requested information: 1. Creating a local user (as default/admin/only user) on the same machine, no active directory or domain just simple home network.
- System DOES create the new user, assigns picture, etc. Try to Log INTO the new user account, system fails to create the new user account file structure, and instead logs in as "temporary". It also appears that no registry entries are made. Its a one user windows :-( NOT a good thing. Thanks in advance
