Hi....

I have trouble in win 2000. When I log on using my accounts, then I tried to run office photodraw 2000, then suddenly my network connection become busy, I see this in the icon. So it takes 5 minutes to run photodraw. I use roaming profiles. I think my profile had something wrong, because when i log use another account, there's no problem.

thank's

A corrupt roaming profile is no joy.
First export your favorites from IE to a backup folder (do not try to copy these from the old profile folder later.) Also export your *.pst file if you use outlook, If you use office go to the office site and download the 'save your settings wizard' and use that.
Then I would rename the old profile (logged in as administrator.)
Create a new user profile and copy the necessary files from your old profile (a few at a time) - login and logout to make sure that the files you copied over are not the culprit. It will take a little while - but it is better then starting from scratch.

Another thing I usually do is also export and import my cookies also. That saves a lot of time setting sites like this one up again.

You might be able to try this.

Right-click on My Computer and Choose Properties

Click on the Profiles tab.

Choose the profile that works and choose "copy to"

Navigate to "c:\documents and settings\default user" and choose OK

Press the Change permitted to use to everyone and choose ok.

This will overwrite the default profile on the local machine.

Now delete the profile you were having problems with and log off.

Now log on with the user you were you having trouble with and you will inherit the good Default user profile.

I hope this helps.

Is this account on your own network or a network that has a system administrator?  If so and they are using active directory - the administrator will have to fix your profile problem.
