Sorry guys i know the technical board is for GV problems only but i really need somebodys help, i have a serious problem concerning my whole system.

Ok earlier i was browsing as normal , nothing was wrong, i disconnected and then rebooted my com, but when it got to the windows welcome screen i got a message saying ''could not load user profile, it may be corrupted, please contact administrator'' I am the bloody admin!!! and then this message came up right after it ''Loading default profile, all changes made to this profile will be lost on restart'' So now everytime i reeboot my whole system is as if i just installed windows for the first time, all my stuff is still on the computer but their all just there in folders, none of them are in my programs window,i really dont know what to do. I have run Norton and it cant find anything, im currently downloading updates to see if that will do anything. Im also using the defaukt browser as my msn is asking me to set up a user account because it thinks its only just been installed. I cant use anything except get on the net. I really havent a clue as to what happened.

I would really appreciate anybodys help in to what the hell is going on guys.

I hope someone can.

thanks

Your operating system files seems corrupted, and I am afraid you may need to reinstall or repair the OS.

Thanks for your input moon, and reinstalling is looking more and more likely at the moment ;) but im trying to hold off for that at the moment as i have so many files and programs that i have downloaded through the months that when your a 56k it will take me a very long time to get them back, things like yahoo / msn update/ all the updates i d/l over the months, they will take me just as long to d/l them all again, im hoping Aloha or Sammy will be able to shed some light before i resort to reinstalling windows. I downloadied the updates for norton but when i rebooted even that wasent working properly, i think i've had a serious attack on my system by some annoying virus by the looks of it. I HATE PEOPLE WHO DESIGN VIRUSES, WHY DONT THEY GET A LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :lol: :lol: ;)

It may not be entirely a virus attack. It also could be windows files being corrupted. That is why we call it MicroCrap.

it was a few weeks ago boo, but im running Norton one more time to see if anything comes up, but i'll probably try that after norton has finished, but if not i'll have to reinstall, would i be able to chuck things like yahoo and other stuff onto a cd? or is it possible they will just infect my com after i reinstall everythin?

MrGrey have you done a disk clean up, Disk defrag, and clean up your cookies? I know I have had trouble in the past and this seemed to help out. I also run a virus scan once a day on my system. Also maybe go to your control panel and go to add remove programs .. Maybe there is something else in there that you dont want. I wish I was better at computers to help you but Im somewhat limited. Good luck and I hope you dont have to re do everything. I had to once and lost all my pictures etc...

Maybe you can try this. I don't know if it will help you, but it's worth a shot.

Go to Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools...then click on System Restore. This will give you the option of going back in time to an earlier date, before your problem started. I was having trouble once and that did the trick.

Good luck Mr. Grey!

Yeah hope that works for you Mr.Grey, I know of times where I had to do that myself.

Grey, I had something similar happen not too long ago, where my hardrive corrupted several clusters (about 6 in all). You have to reinstall your Operating System direct from the disk, don't worry, it doesn't erase what programs you have. Run a major scan disk (my computer did that automatically on start up, took several hours), and that will isolate those corrupt clusters. Anything that fails to work after that will have to be reinstalled because the program whole or in part were in the corrupt clusters. And look into purchasing a new harddrive. When you install that, you can transfer programs and info from the old one to the new one or use the old one as a 'slave drive'.

First copy files from your old profile (look under c:\Documents and Settings) to a CD. Alternatively, you may copy them to a different partition on your hard disk. You probably won't be able to copy NTUSER.DAT, but Windows will recreate it anyways.

Are you able to boot into "Safe Mode" (press F-8 as Windows starts)? Once you're in Safe Mode, disable System Restore. Browse under "C:\Documents and Settings". Delete everything except "All Users", "Default User", "LocalService", "NetworkService", "Administrator", and your old good profile. At this point, run regedit and do a search for "Documents and Settings". Delete any key you find unless it references the files you spared earlier. If the key is under HKEY_USERS, delete the main key (IOW, delete that temporary user). Now run a malware (spyware, virus, worm, trojan, etc) check on your entire hard disk.

After taking care of the malware, defragment your hard disk. Defrag will increase your disk's seek time, giving you better performance.

Finally, reboot in "Normal Mode" and turn on "System Restore". At this point, if the problem persists, I would suggest reinstalling Windows.

I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere

here's my advice Mr Grey, GET A MAC! LOL!

Sorry to hear about your computer woes, and hope you get everything back up and running soon! I know what a pain it is too be paralyzed like that!

I forgot about the possibility of bad clusters, so check out Vamp's advice.

Bridget, not everyone can afford a Mac. Personally, half the software I use doesn't have a viable counter-part on OS X.
