I have a corrupt user configuration database. It might have become corrupted when my system got a hard stop. I have restarted and everything seems okay excpet the user that I usually use has had it's profile reset to the default. After looking at many things I finally was able to get Windows to complain that the user configuration database is corrupt. So how can I restore the profile to it's previous condition? I do not have a recent restore point to use so I assume I will lose some configuration data if I restore to a configuration from more than a month ago.
All of the data exists in the "Documents and Settings\User" folder. There is now a "Documents and Settings\Temp" folder also and the registry now points to the "Documents and Settings\Temp" folder.
In my User Profiles dialog the affected user has a profile with a status of "Backup". It is the only user with a backup profile and I am not aware of creating the backup. I also had a profile for the user with a status of "Temporary" but it is not there now. The user does not have a "Local" profile but all other users except Guest do.
