My user profile is corrupted!!!
With the recent spate of technology blowing up in my face, this was the straw that broke the camel's back.
When I turned my laptop on and logged onto my user account it took slightly longer than normal. When it finished loading, all that my normal account looked like was what the guest, or an empty users account looks like. When I logged out and logged back in again a message appeared that said that it was unable to log me in, most likely because my profile is corrupt. It went on to say that it would log me into a temporary account with which all settings would be lost everytime I logged out.
I found my accounts documents, but I cannot open them. For example, all Word documents just open up a blank Word screen.
What has happened? Is it possible to fix this?
The only thing that I can think that could have caused this was when I was in a hurry to turn off my laptop and rather than do the normal shut down procedure, I simply held the power button down until it turned itself off. Surely this wouldn't do it?
My account is the Owner/Admin account, there are also two other 'restricted accounts' and the guest account.
Any help or advice would be GREAT, I'm very desparate, almost to the point of tears!
