Roaming Profile (user profile was not loaded correctly)

when I login to my user account, I always get a "Preparing your desktop..." message for one or two minutes, and finally it
loads to the desktop. Then at the lower right corner of the screen a balloon
pops up saying that my "user profile was not loaded correctly", and it is
using a "temporary profile" instead.

Looks like your profile is currupt.
Log in as a different user ( or create on ) with administrator rights.
Go to c:\documents and settings\ And rename the folder with the account with the corrupted profile. ( for example profile folder name is justin, rename it to @justin )
Then log off and log on with the account that had the corrupt profile.
Windows will create a new one for you now.
You can get your favorites etc. from the renamed profile it needed.

I forgot when Windows creates a new profile it copies this from the default user profile.

So you should delete from c:\documents and settings\  the folder with the account with the corrupted profile AND ALSO the default user folder.
