Just before I left for work, I shut my computer off before I realized I forgot to do something, and when I turned my computer back on I got the following messages:

"Windows can not load the locally stored profile. Possible causes for this include insufficient security rights or a corrupt local profile. If the problem persists, contact your network administrator."

"Windows can not find local profile and is logging on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off."

So after work, I come home and read that I should make a new profile with admin rights. Which I've done.

I then read that I should try and copy the original profile to the new admin profile so everything will be back to normal, but when copying the profile I got this message:

"Failed to set Security on the Destination Profile. Error - Data error (cyclic redundancy check)."

After researching what that was about, I believe there's something corrupted with my registry?

I still have access to everything, but would like the profile (or another profile) back to the way my original one was.
Is there a way I can do this? System restore has never worked for me and yet again for this it fails, so that's out of the picture. Is there a program I can run on the new admin profile to check and repair the registry files on the original profile? Am I doing anything wrong, or am I on the right tracks here? Any help would be appreciated.

I probably left out some detail.. Im kinda pissed right now and was in a rush to type this, so if you need to know any details, just ask.

I've just tried the DialAFix from this page:

When I log onto windows with my original profile, I no longer get the window popping up, instead it just automatically logs me on to a temp profile.

If the error message is not coming up anymore, I was thinking, maybe the problem is fixed.. now the only problem I have is this:

Is there any way to delete the highlighted temp profile, or make the backup one above it Local?

Can you access your normal profile?

The CRC error refers to problems with the file system on your hard drive (or to a problem with your hard drive).
I'd suggest running the Check Disk on your hard drive first.

To do this, go to Start...My Computer.
Then right click on your hard drive and select Properties
In the Properties window, select the Tools tab, then select the Error Checking Check Now button.
Check both boxes in the next window and select "Start"
The system may tell you that it has to restart to do this, select OK and reboot the computer.
A light blue screen will come up and run the check - let if finish (it takes a long, long time).
When it's done it'll boot into Windows.
