Logging in With a temporary profile

I have searched a lot on the Internet about this but with no acceptable solution (that doesn't involve deleting my profile).
Sometimes (and I mean sometimes) when I log on I get a temporary profile (it annoyingly says "preparing desktop for a while then logs in). No idea why. And if I log out and in again, I get my normal profile. It's sporadic and unpredictable.
Not sure what else to say. Any ideas? I have windows 7 home edition 32bit version.
Any easier solution than deleting my profile and starting again? Because if I do that I may as well just do a clean install

No one seems to have had any ideas. To close this off for the benefit of others, it seems to be a bug in Windows 7. There is lots on the internet about it.
I know this because I have installed windows 7 three times now, and it happened in each installation.
The only way I have got rid of it is by NOT password protecting my account. This seems to get round the issue. Not the safest, but there you go.
