Firstly, apologies for the dramatic thread title; it's not that urgent.
Anyways, I've got a big computer problem that hopefully you can help with because, well, I'm absolutely stumped.
I'll start from the beginning. I've been using the guest account on my laptop for about a year because when I try log in to the main account I get an error message reading: 'User profile cannot be loaded'.
This wasn't a problem until very recently because I don't use the laptop much, but I am trying to install a printer, which I cannot do because the Guest account does not have administrative privleges.
I tried running the disc as administrator but I get another error message, one with a red X. I've tried stuff in command prompt. I've tried setting up another account as administrator but nothing happens. I've tried everything, basically.
Oh, and I've tried clicking the 'Fix it for me' option in a Microsoft site but, after running it as an administrator, I get another message saying it's only a temporary profile or something.
It's very much a catch-22 situation and I'd be so, so grateful if anybody could give me a dig out.
