    Hello I am Kasinath,

    My system is compaq presario SR1630il,2GB RAM
    OS-: Windows XP professional with sp3 with all updates.

    I am facing a problem for quite some time ,when I booted the system and When I clicked my user name to to load my personal settings, often it says loading your personal settings,then applying your personal settings and it loads a default settings with a minimum desktop icons.

    So to get back my original settings I have to resort to system restore.This problem occurs even though I am shutdown the system properly.

    As I browsed the net for this problem,some advice for taking the backup of my profile by copying the profile does not work since for my profile "copy to" is greyed out.

    I also could not change my profile to roaming profile since that is also greyed out.

    In my system only my user name is displayed for logging-in in the welcome screen.

    In control panel-> useraccounts following are displayed

    1)kasinath- computer adminstrator

    2)Guest account is off

    3)asp.net machine A
    limited acoount
    password protected.

    Kindly advice me why I am facing this problem and How to solve this problem

    kasinath.

    You should not run TWO (or more) anti-virus applications at the same time, try disabling either Kaspersky or MSE

    Very good advice but I don't think it will fix your profile problem.

    Try the following,

    1> Add a new user in the control panel (make it an administrator account).

    2> logoff your current session and select the new user when the login screen comes up.

    3> add some shortcuts to the desktop for this user.

    4> restart the machine and select the new user check that the settings have stayed the same and the custom shortcuts are there.

    If this works we have found that it is just your personal profile that is corrupt but windows in general is working OK. The simplest option may be to create a new user for yourself and copy all your user files and settings from your old profile into this new profile.

    PS> I love the beaches around Chennai, unfortunately the last time I was there it was still called Madras
