<<I currently want to repair windows on my laptop and keep my profile intact...>>
A repair install of XP, properly done with a Genuine XP CD and valid license...does not change profiles or the data/settings reflected by such.
Soooo...I would have to ask you the steps you took on your mentioned previous repair effort.
System manufacturer and model?
Recovery/restore CDs on hand?
Recovery/restore partition on system?
<<...I had made an account different from my old one during setup.>>
That sounds to me as if you created a new profile as the Owner/Administrator...which may not have been wise.
If the old profile still is reflected, I think I would try creating a new profile (now) ...and then moving the details of the old profile to the newly created one. In short, I would treat the old profile as if it is corrupted/damaged.

Nothing to lose but a small bit of time.
