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.
