Default Recover a User Profile....

So last nite when I started up Windows XP Pro I get an error message that my user profile is corrupt and won't be loaded.

Luckily i created a restore point the nite before and It restored perfectly. But how would you go abour recovering a corrupt profile if you had to??

well, if I recall correctly, if you generate a corrupt profile, it's the registry settings. so the files and folders are still there, as well as the registery data in ntuser.dat. if you feel inclined you can dig into the dat file to see about finding the problem, or just move everything over to the new folder.
it's possible that you have a new directory name called username.001 or something like that where username is your logon name, in documents and settings.
hope that helps...
