I am runing XP Pro in a standalone mode. I logged on this morning and
received a message I didnt have permissions to my profile so a temp provile
was being created. All local profiles has lost their individual users
permissions (only built-in admin acct had permissions).

I reapplied the permissions for the appropriate users to their profiles and
it work properly again. Is this the result of a viral or errorant Patch. My
mother-in-law called me a few days ago with the same issue I am dont think
this is localized.

Hi,

If it was the result of a virus or patch, many more people would be having
this problem than just you and your mother.

Hey Rick,

not really a useful thread. I have identifed two incidents in my known
local area. Some virus are slow to replicate while other may not have
downloaded a patch I have at this point. If you have any sugestions on why
this may have happened, I would appreciate that meaningful feedback though.

Thank-you.

Error Message: Windows Cannot Load Your Profile Because It May Be Corrupted
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q318011

Create a New User or Restore the User Profile
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q318011

Suggestions:

Right click My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Locate the
entries for your hard disks and double click each entry. On the Policies
tab, uncheck Enable write caching.

You will see a performance decrease because of this, but if the corrupt
registry/user profiles problems cease, then you'll be certain of the cause.

Logon to another account with admin privilege and run System Restore.
Choose the most recent restore point and SR should restore the user
hives.

Or...

Boot into safe mode and log in as Administrator. Copy ntuser.dat from
%windir%\repair to "Documents and Settings\[your user id]". Now do a system
restore to a point in time prior to when the corruption message began to
appear.

Or...

Relocate NTUserdat

Look in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList and find the profile you want to change and
then change ProfileImagePath to the ntuser.dat folder that you want to use.
You must manually copy or move the ntuser.dat file there.

A friend had the same problem here in South Korea. Local Koreans wanted to reformat her drive. A quick search online found the answer. It is a Windows Vista issue. It renames the user profile and creates a new profile that is in essence blank. It takes 2 minutes in regedit mode after booting in safe mode to fix the issue. http://forums.techarena.in/vista-help/873132.htm has the answer BUT notice he mistypes some instructions on renaming the files. Use common sense. Once you have renamed the correct profile with .bk, you rename the temporary file with .bak and then go back and delete the .bk from the legitimate file. Done. It works
