Sir I am using windows xp service pack3 for last 4 years, It was working fine. till past few days.. when sudden power failure caused it giving following error "windows cannot find local profile..." I created new profile and copied the files from old profile to this.

Though system was working fine. one of my software MPLAB IDE was not working  it used to give unspecified error and stop. So I used registry cleaner in safe mode and MPLAB IDE was started working properly. But window become slow at the start . It takes almost 5-10 minutes to get original screen. Also When I start explorer it holds up for a while (20-25 sec ).In safe mode everything works well. What may be the problem?

The registry cleaner probably removed things that some startup programs needed, so now they get stuck and slow. Considering the problem and that you had to create a new user profile, I'd probably just reinstall windows fresh. (But maybe some other people have ideas for fixing it instead)

- The power outage has damaged the info regarding that user account. I would recommend to install Tweaking's Registry Backup. It makes a copy of the registry upon start up. Saves A LOT OF hassle when the next power outage comes.

- I would recommend to backup all the files you generated with MPLAB IDE & all the settings to e.g. a USB stick. Then remove the program (with REVO uninstaller). In this case simply copying files doesn't always work.

- Delete as much files/info related to MPLAB IDE as possible with e.g. Ccleaner. See the result from the FARBAR minitool.

- Re-install MPLAB IDE. Does this program run a service (See Task Manager) in the background ? See also the results from Speccy (to be posted). If so, then that Service could point to the wrong folder(s).

Hey Friend, It may be possible because if PC in safe mode then it loads only minimum necessary files to run operating system and normal mode loads all the files and features of the system that may be due to your system's infection by virus scan. Scan your system or and reinstall windows again. Thanks
