    User Environment message (WXpHeSp2)

    When booting / re-booting into windows on one of our pc's we get the dialogue box that begins windows cannot load user's profile but has logged you on with the default profile for the system. Please this is soo annoying! How do we get rid of this?

    Sounds like the profile has become corrupted. Can other users log in OK? You may be better of re-creating the profile (after running a ChkDsk to make sure there is no HD failure in the offing...)

    Can you immediately reboot and things are OK? Does the PC in question sit at the login prompt for a period of time? Is there software that runs at boot time which accesses network devices? Home or work?

    Re: User Environment message (WXpHeSp2)

    ok thanx for that it was a corrupted user profile , we could not repair it so we had to reinstall windows. Now our problem is in sharing where Pc1 can see Pc2 but not its individual drives which are already shared so ought to be seen- any ideas or suggestions would be very much appreciated.

    Can you post the new issue as a separate thread, possibly in Networking? - others with a similar problem will be able to find it more easily then.

    (Sorry - I don't have an immediate answer myself! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> )

    Re: User Environment message (WXpHeSp2)

    There really isn't any way to repair a corrupt profile, about the best you can do is to create a completely new user account. If you need to keep the same username then you could delete the user account (and profile) first and then create the new user account using the same name.

    NOTE: If you are going to delete the profile then make sure you back up any data that you might want to keep first. Please don't delete the account and profile and then tell us that this deleted vital files that you need!
