A few weeks ago a PC running Windows 7 got a corrupted user profile and we couldn't log-on ("User profile cannot be loaded"). I logged-on as admin, created a new user, and copied all files from the old corrupted user to the new user account.
The new user account can now log-on and run all the programs, but if he tries to go to Control Panel, Windows Explorer, Computer, or Devices and printers all we see is an error message - "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item".
Any ideas please?
