A few days ago, I logged in and my desktop and files were wiped clean and I got this message: "You have been logged on with a temporary profile. To fix this, log off and try logging on later. Please see the event log for details or contact your system admin." I shut down and tried again a half hour later and it was fine. Every day for the past few days, the same thing has been happening and yesterday it took about 8 reboots to get my regular profile up.
This is a new PC that I got late last year, and there are no signs of a virus or any other problems. I have not touched my profile or made any changes. This came out of nowhere. Anyone know how to solve this issue? A brief search online has brought up some suggestions of changing the registry keys, but that can be extremely dangerous unless I know exactly what I'm doing.
