Temporary profile after System Restore

I recently did a system restore on my Pavilion dv4-2145dx with Windows 7 and now I can't log in to my main profile. The OS just logs me in to a temporary profile and says to "try logging in later". I have restarted the computer since then. The system lets me type in my password with the profile picture at the Windows login screen, but it still puts me in a temporary profile.

Re: Temporary profile after System Restore

For some reason your user profile has become corrupt, the fastest way to recover is to try an earlier restore point or create a new user account and migrate the old one to the new one. Delete the old user account after you are satisfied with the new one, a week or two later.

 

This article is for XP, but is very similar to Vista and W7, scroll down to "Moving to a new user profile"
