win 7 profile rename issues temp profile.

Posted on 2011-10-13
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a win 7 machine on a domain. The profile has some corruption. I tried renaming the profile and logging back in to create a new profile (like in win XP), but it keeps giving me a temporary profile - is there a reg change that needs to happen?

Ideally, I would like to create a new profile, log back in with my domain account and have a perminate profile established, then if possible, can win 7 copy the old profile over to the new?

    Assisted Solution

    goto registry (regedit)
    follow the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
    under profilelist browse the keys & delete the key referenced to your profile.

    restart machine & login.
    New Profile is there
