The battery is no good on my Gateway laptop, so computer will only run a few minutes when unplugged. I accidently kicked plug loose from wall and didn't realize it; I saw computer was shutting down due to low battery and I quickly plugged it back in, but it was already powering down. When I re-booted it, it had to run through all the disk-scans and then when it finally booted, it was under temporary profile and not mine. I tried to follow directions on Microsoft help forum (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/fix-a-corrupted-user-profile) to fix corrupted user profile, but their step-by-step instructions don't match up with my computer.
In particular, MS tells me to create a new profile and copy my old profile to the new one. I created new profile, but it tells me to copy all files except the following: Ntuser.dat, Ntuser.dat.log, and Ntuser.ini. On mine, there are 2 Ntuser.dat.log files and I don't have Ntuser.ini. The other thing I'm not understanding is once I copy them, I can't figure out how to move it all to the new profile.
P.S. I also tried to change the corrupted profile settings using this method: http://www.sysprobs.com/fix-temporary-profile-windows-7 but had no luck there either. When logged off/on had the same temporary settings as before. Plus, the computer is running incredibly slow and locks up a lot when on the internet. Anytime I have to restart it has to run through disk scan again, which takes about 20 minutes.
P.P.S. I am deployed to Afghanistan at the moment so I am not able to run to a repair technician, and since my laptop is my primary method of communication/entertainment, I would really like to have it fixed, any help would be greatly appreciated.
