I need help...My computer has twice given the "can not retrieve profile" error message. the first time I selected ok and was logged in with a basic default profile. the next time I got the same message I re-started my computer instead of selecting OK in the message box. From that point forward I can not boot up the computer. I've tried booting in safe, safe with networking, safe with command prompt, boot from last know config. Nothing works. The computer acts as if its booting but then stops about 10-15 seconds into the boot up. Please help. Thanks
