I've got a Windows 7 Home Premium machine that randomly booted up this morning, and logged into a temporary account. It leaves the data intact in the C:\Users\John folder, but creates a new one in C:\Users\Temp.John000. Everytime you log out and back in, it creates a new account. This is the second computer that I've seen do this. I was on the phone with HP tech support, and basically came to the conclusion to recover. Has anyone been running into this?

Create another account, and see if the issue happens then.

What happened is that your profile became corrupted some how.
