How do i recover a corrupt local user profile? everytime i
log on, it says that
"Windows cannot load the locally stored profile. Possible
causes of this error include insufficient security rights
or a corrupt local profile. if this problem persists,
contact network administrator"

"Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you
on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this
profile will be lost when you log off."

thanks!

    You should have periodically used the file transfer wizard,or saved
    dats on a cd or similiar.Copying the now corrupted data or corrupted
    user account you might just be copying the corrupted data as well.
  3. just use

    accessories --> system tools -- > system restore.

    in this you can choose the date in which you found your system is correct. choose the date and that is it. the system will recover all its old setting.
