Sometimes my Windows 7 PC will log me on with a temp profile instead of my usual login. I have to reboot several times to get it to accept the correct login. Why?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This is because your Home Profile Folder or profile files are corrupted, so Windows will load a TEMP profile to allow you to use the PC. I recommend you to back up your data in your Home Profile Folder an then create a new user account so a new user profile will be created, then move your info to the new profile… I’m sure it will solve your probleem.

If not… Sadly i have to say you will have to repair your operating system form viruses or registry problems…
In the worst case you will have to reinstall windows…
