Please help I am getting this error on start up after hard reset your user profile was not loaded correctly. You have been logged on with a temporary profile.changes to this profile will be lost when you log off. I seem to have lost all my desktop shortcuts.documents and music and pictures but I know they are there somewhere. Does anyone know how to get them back please. Any help appreciated thanks

Thanks for the very useful links.just what I was looking for. Should sort the problem for me as I have found the missing docs and files. I will create a new user copy them to the new profile and delete the old one seems the easiest route. Thanks to all for the help Cheers
