Logged in as admin but not the desktop I am used too......
Posted on 2006-12-01
I had to reboot my server from my house the other night. First of all when it came back up the Performance Alert and Log service was stuck in the "Starting" state. Each time I would log in I had a different desktop than I am used too, thinking that was because of the service not starting correctly. So I let it go that whole next day and then rebooted it again that next night and waited longer after the ping came back to log in, thinking that was the problem.
When I logged in everything seemed to be ok, desktop looked normal and I wasn't getting the error message about a service not starting correctly.
So I come into work the next morning and log into the server and I get a different desktop than what I am used too. Each time I am logging in as the same ID adminstrator. It is the same desktop as when the service didn't start correctly.
After looking around I noticed that in Documents and Settings there is a User called TEMP and when I look in it there is "My Documents" and when I look into the administrator folder I see "Administrator's Documents". Doesn't that mean that I am logged in under a different profile or user. Everytime I have used the same username and password.
The first time I logged into the server after the second reboot I saw the desktop I am used too. That is the last time I seen it.
Does anyone know why or how or what may have caused this?
Thank you in advance.
