That message is indicative of a damaged profile and it appears to give the user time to create a new profile to replace the damaged one.

See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318011 AND Copy Data from a Corrupted User Profile to a New Profile in Windows XP - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811151 .

Thanks Louis, are corrupt profiles a common occurance? I have a dodgy power connection, my original power supply lead damaged got one of them maplin multi connect/voltage supplys which is fairly loose.

I will follow your links

There's a MS KB dealing with such...IMO, that means that it happens often enough to be fully documented on how to overcome it. You can use Google and see how frequently such topics appear. I consider it a common occurrence.

I have had it happen once in the time that I've been playing with computers...I just followed the yellow brick road laid out by MS.
