Windows - Corrupt profiles
Posted on 2011-02-25
Occasionally a user has problems and sometimes the fix is to redo their profiles because of the urban legend description - 'the profile has become corrupted'. How is that a profile gets corrupted? I understand how databases can be corrupted so what is that gets corrupted/causes corruption in a user's profile - the nt.dat file, too much garbage in their temp folders, a lot of big files on their desktop? Is there any tools that can be run against profiles similar to database 'integrity' checking/fixing tools that spots the problem and fixes it/makes recommendations?
