Preferred Solution: Solved: MSG-Cannot find local profile; loading temp file

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I just turned on my computer and attempted to log in as normal. A message came up saying "Windows could not locate local profile, creating temporary profile". All my settings (internet etc) have reverted to what looks like the factory settings and my files have all disappeared. I am the administrator, the other user account on my computer is perfectly normal (all files present etc). So far I have tried logging out and logging back in, and restarting the computer but nothing has changed.

I am running Windows XP (home edition), I don't have service pack 3 installed, my browser is Mozilla Firefox (also have but don't use IE7). I regularly run antivirus scans with AVG 7.5 free edition and the last scan was clear (at the weekend).

Thanks for any help!!!

We have been experiencing intermittent problems within our company whereby a user (non-roaming profile) will log onto their computer and receive a message that Windows cannot load the profile and they will be logged on with a temporary profile.
We found a temporary fix concerning the deletion of the .bak guid in the registry under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList. It fixes the problem for a period of time and then it recurs.

Everything I've found on Microsoft's site references how to copy or create but not how to find the cause.

We have Microsoft investigating however since the problem comes and goes its difficult to have a "broken" machine available when Microsoft wants to connect.

Any suggestions?

I don't know how to fix your problem, but can't you use group policy to run a script and delete the registry key when the computer starts up? It might help until you find a better solution.

A:"Windows cannot load the locally stored profile." then "Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on...

This problem is more serious than you think...since eventually user access could be denied.

Damaged profiles occur routinely...they beoome showstoppers only because users ignore the warnings that are provided...by permitting access via temporary profiles.

Users need to create a new profile...and then transfer settings, etc. from the damaged to the new...in order to overcome a damaged profile.

I have never had a problem logging on before yesterday.The problem is still there,I am still being logged on with a temporary profile,which seems to be the same as starting all over again.I have lost most of my desktop icons ,all my documents and pictures are gone and I need to search out them from somewhere. Then the folders are still there but the documents were lost.There isn't any net connection in my computer and don't connect any external devices like pendrive. Why this happened? How can get my documents as previous in my desktop. Please give me suggestion.

A:Windows can't find the local profile.....

Your profile became corrupted. So, Windows created a temporary user profile for you. Go to Start/Run and type control userpasswords and press enter. Create a new user profile with admin rights. Log out of the temp user you are in and log in as the new user. Now go to C:\Documents and Settings here you will have the user profile your in be branched out. You will also see the Administrator profile and your old user profile. Open your old user profile and copy the My Documents, Favorites and Desktop folders and paste them into your new profile overwriting the empty files that are in there now. You may need to Take Ownership of the Folder. Then just log in as the new user from now on.
As for your other issues like net connectivity, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager, do you see any yellow marks next to devices? If so, you will need to install a driver for these devices from your computer manufacturers support/download drivers site.

Hi, my daughter has a laptop with Windows XP Professional, Internet Explorer and Outlook Express for emails. Yesterday it was fine and today it isn't! When we switch on the computer we get a pop-up window that says "Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off".
Everything appears to be gone, the screen saver is just a generic green hills, All short cuts are gone, Outlook express is empty and other things she had like msn is gone.

Why would it not be about "find the local profile"? and is there anything we can do to get it back to normal?
Thanks for any advice you can offer.

Had a horrible problem with malware which bleepingcomputer helped me with. (thank you) At that time, several profiles were "lost." Got everything back and it worked well for several weeks. Then got the message again that the local profile could not be found/located; loading temporary profile. I used system recovery and went back to the good date I had following the major clean up. All is restored, until a few weeks later. Been playing this game and I'm tired of it. (I'm at home again, so I can work on problem.) What causes this to happen and how can I stop it? Also, using winPatrol and keep getting messages about QuickTime wanting to install something at startup. Been check no, but it gets very aggravating for son and husband as it pops up more than it does on my profile.

Thanks!

A:"Windows cannot find local profile. . . "

IME...anytime a temporary profile is used...that's an indication that the standard profile is damaged.

In such cases, I would create a new profile and move the settings/files from the damaged profile...to the newly created one and then delete the old one.

As to why a profile becomes damaged...any file can become damaged at any time, IMO.

Re Quicktime...I suggest uninstalling it (it's one of my least favorite programs). If you must install/use it...then I suggest that you pay attention to all the options that you enable by default when installing it. Due to lack of info provided, I can't suggest more than that.

Hi there System 7 Demigods,

So I'm in my email where a buddy sent me a word doc as an attachment that I modified, hit save, and saved to Lord Knows Where....

The address when I retrace my steps (ever so cautiously) is:

<<Users>Name>AppData>Local>Temp

Now I can see the Word file but can't find out how to open it so I can send it back to my buddy. Wahhhh!

It looks like the file is hidden because as I open up explorer and go down the list I can get to Users, then Name, then there is NO AppData file or folder to open. Bloody Microsoft Weenies!!!

How do you open AppData, and then >Local, then >Temp.

Oh yeah, the word doc is saved as a "Rich Text Format" if that helps.

Your kind advice gratefully accepted... Thanks all.

A:Owner/Local Settings/Temp Folder - Unknown File

Some files are locked by the operating system or locked by running programs during use for protection, so scanners cannot access them. Files that are located in password-protected archives may also be locked or denied access. When the scanner finds such a file, it makes a note and then just skips to the next one. That explains why it shows as "skipped" or "Access Denied" in some anti-virus or anti-malware log scan reports. Similarly, when attempting to delete such a file manually, you may receive a message indicating it is in use or a warning that it is a protected. For more information about this, please refer to How to Delete/Rename a Stubborn File. Several utilities are suggested for dealing with stubborn files to include Unlocker.Please download Unlocker and save to your desktop.Choose the default installation folder C:\Programs Files\Unlocker, click "Next" then click "Install" and reboot when finished.Navigate to the file or folder you want to delete.Right-click on it and select "Unlocker" from the menu.If the folder or file is locked, a window listing of lockers will open.Click to highlight the file path and choose "Unlock all". (make sure "no action" is chosen in the program)After you unlock it, right-click on the file and choose delete.Note: When you are unsure about a suspicious or unknown file, you can rename it by adding .vir after the file's extension (i.e. badfile.dll.vir). If you receive an alert from Windows about renaming, just ignore it. I prefer renaming instead of deleting as deletion leaves you with no option to restore if the file is later found to be legitimate. Taking no action exposes you to risk if the file is not legitimate.

I've quite some Windows machines in my home network running XP Professional, Win7 Professional, Premium and Starter. Since about two weeks, EVERY system is complaining occasionally about local profiles that cannot be found after switching user (or on Starter, logging off and logging on to another user). The exact message is 'Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile'. Only by rebooting I'm able to get into my original profile.

Since I have seen this multiple times on XP, Win7 Starter and Win7 Professional, and only since about two weeks, this rather points to some 'fix' that I received with Windows Update. At least I can not imagine another reason. Does anyone have this problem too?

Hi there,

I've been having a problem with a machine on my workplaces network. The users local profile corrupted, so i did what any Technician would do and backed up her local profile then deleted it from "C:Users\(Users Logon)". I then restarted the machine and logged back in as her. However, rather than just creating a new local profile the machine logged her in with a temporary profile. I have since done the same process but with my account and the same problem occurs. I have also tenaciously researched this problem on the internet, but could only find suggestions on what to delete in regedit. I have tried all of the suggestions but to no prevail.

Any light anyone can shine on this issue would be much appreciated.
Thank You.

Reboot your computer, tap F-8 as its booting up. this should take you to safe mode, select the default admin account set up by windows when installed and try and back up as much data as you can from your original account as it appears that your original account and possibly all accounts other than your default admin account may be corrupt. Now do a system restore and select a date prior to when these problems occurred. Reboot and attempt to access your accounts or account as normal. If this does not work then the accounts pretty much are goners, but someone else may know more in regards to this than me.

Hello Folks,

Feel somewhat foolish, however here goes. I'm an intermediate user. Just installed 0&0 Safe erase 3 tool from Sept 09 issue of PC Pro. I merely wish to securely delete my temporary internet file folder. Problem is, i can't get to folder if i search in search box, (in vista) however i can see the folder via tools/internet options/settings/view files in the folder list, but am afraid to move it just in case i mess up the place where the files go, in the normal running of Windows.All i want to do is put the folder in the 'add folder' box of safe erase 3 and delete the files manually, but cannot get to it. Hoping this makes some kind of sense, and some kind person can advise me how to complete this simple task.

Cheers,

Hello,

I find it hard to believe, that of 36 people who have viewed my post to date, that no one has a suggestion for a reply. Can anyone explain this? I don't think the solution is difficult, i'm simply stuck. That's all. Maybe this is why i don't use forums like this. I'm sure there was a time when administrators offered advice. Probably with overwhelming demand, solutions canot be guaranteed. I'll wait a while longer, and then withdraw my membership. Sadly...

Thanks

A: C:\Users\Ted\AppData\Local\Temp\ScrC777.temp\_FRBatch.pac was not found

Hi TedRayWesty,
When your computer ?wake up? from ?sleep? mode, the RAM will be able to respond to a wake-up event and calling files for program. There might be a calling failure. I searched about your temp folder name and the temp file name and seems like it is not a system
file and it is called by some third party software.
Try following steps to resolve your issue
Please perform a clean boot and see if the issue still persist.
Check the other contents in ScrC777.temp folder see if you could identify the software.(seems like some Security Software or Anti-Spyware)
Uninstall it and delete the temp folder see what happens.

I would like to delete the existing profile and create a new one, but I keep getting the message that this is a system file and cannot be removed. I have tried changing permissions, even taking ownership of the profile, but that didn't work either. Does anyone know how I can get the "bad" one deleted, and create a new good one?

You might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before you had these issues may be able to fix them.

A:Explorer size and location cache no longer works after migrating local profile to domain profile

I figured out my own issue. Don'tcha love it when that happens?
I logged into the affected machine as the domain administrator, and when I loaded the ntuser.dat hive for the affected user, I noticed that the \Software\Classes key didn't exist. It did, however, exist for the logged on user and it appears to correlate
directly to the key under HKU\[SID]_Classes.
On a hunch, I logged back into the affected profile, drilled down to HKU\[SID]_Classes, and when I checked the permissions, I noticed that the domain user did not have explicit permissions to the key and subkeys. I added Full Control permissions, propagated
them through the key and subkeys, rebooted, et voila! Everything is back to the way it should be.
I'll be leaving a comment for Mahdi Tehrani to ensure this is done to prevent issues like I had.Ron Arestia, MCSA (Server 2012)

The reason this is happening is that he is part of a domain likely, and when you are away from the network the computer cannot login into the Domain. He will have to switch his profile to local.

I did some renaming and copying over of his old profile stuff to a new one and noticed the TEMP profile was no longer there in the Documents and Settings. Does anyone know if the TEMP profile becomes hidden, moved somewhere else, or deleted?

Thanks

My computer runs Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002, Service Pack 2. I was having problems with my printer so I uninstalled and then reinstalled and now I get the following error.

Cannot find file:
///C:/DOCUME~1/Owner/LOCALS~1/Temp/nosget_start_manager.htmf. Make sure the path or Internet address is correct.

What do I you about this?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I am only an intermediate computer kind of person so, if it could be explained at my level, that would be even for wonderful.

Thank you kindly,

The last 4 or 5 days I've been getting the attached message from NOD32. Finally got round to looking at it this morning. When I try to delete the file, NOD32 comes up "Error when deleting".

I did a search for the fie on my hard drive and I found it, but again when trying to delete straight from the source folder it it said "file not found".

I should have thought to have done a screen print of the properties box but I didn't. However, looking at the location - appdata/local/...8EE38d01 it appears this is a Firefox profile file.

Ever since it's shown up I seem to be having problems with the wifi on the laptop, I don't know if this is causing it or whether that's a new problem entirely!

Thought I'd drop a post here in case anyone's come across this before.

wittykitty,

You can get rid of it by using Windows Defender Offline.
Windows Defender Offline runs without Win 7 running.

Follow this procedure:
HOW TO USE WINDOWS DEFENDER OFFLINE ON A USB STICK
Windows Defender Offline
? is a free standalone, bootable malware and virus remover from Microsoft.
? performs an offline scan of an infected PC to remove viruses, rootkits and other advanced malware.

Download Windows Defender Offline (about 764 kB)

You will have the choice of downloading the 32bit version (x86) or the 64 bit version (x64).
The link will help you determine whether you are running a 32 bit version or 64 bit version of Windows

NOTE!! You can download and prepare a 32 bit version using a 64 bit version of Windows
NOTE!! You can download and prepare a 64 bit version using a 32bit version of Windows.

You run the 32 bit version on a 32 bit version of Windows.
You run the 64 bit version on a 64 bit version of Windows.

The 32 bit download file name is: mssstool32.exe
The 64 bit download file name is: mssstool64.exe

For the curious, this program was originally name Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper.


INSTALLATION:
You will need an Internet Connection.
Insert 512 mB (Microsoft?s 256 mB is no longer accurate) or larger USB stick into a usb port.
Run the downloaded program--mssstool64.exe or mssstool32.exe
NEXT button
Choose the option On a USB flash drive that is not password protected
NEXT button
NEXT button
.
The install program will format the usb stick using the NTFS format.
The install program will download about 210 mB.
The install program will name the USB stick WDO_Media32 or WDO_Media64
The WDO_Media32 usb stick will have used space of 255 mB (268,140,544 bytes)
The WDO_Media64 usb stick will have used space of 282 mB (296,165,376 bytes)
You can expect the number of mB to increase as more malware appears.

UPDATE Windows Defender Offline USB stick:
? reinsert the usb stick
? run the installation program, mssstool64.exe or mssstool32.exe, again.
? the update will download about 66 mB (mssstool32.exe) and 68 mB (mssstool64.exe).

Since the malware database is sometimes updated several times in a day, always update before running.

PERFORM AN OFFLINE SCAN
Bootup your computer from the USB stick
Windows Defender Offline will automatically perform a quick scan.
After the quick scan finishes, Choose Full Scan
Select all of your drives

The initial, full scan can easily take several hours, but
Remember, your computer is being very thoroughly checked for all types of malware.


RESULTS OF THE SCAN
The results will be in 4 log files on your computer's disk in:
\Windows\Microsoft Antimalware\Support
===============================================
===============================================
===============================================

After running wdo and booting your computer up normally,
then carry out following which will put a .ZIP file on your desktop. Upload that .ZIP file please.

HI Guys

Hope that you can assist me.

I need to merge a local profile on a computer it's domain profile.

Example local\test1 to domain\0004

Each computer will have its own domain profile, it will not be a roaming profile.

Our company needs to move away from the local computer profiles to domain profiles.

Do you maybe know of an easy way to do it?

It will also need to move all settings, like email account to the domain profile.

We are using Windows 7 64 bit Enterprise.

Thank you

Ran into an odd issue last night that I cannot fully understand. I will keep it short, but the basic jist is: I was trying to rename a local profile to [username].old so when they logged back into the domain, it rebuilt from scratch. However, even logged in as local admin to the PC, I kept getting access denied. At one point, I was getting a NTUSER error when trying to rename.

Was trying to rename through backdoor [\\[pcname]\c$, then going to doc&settings] as well as simply going to the C drive locally, no dice.

Tried rebooting twice, still no dice. This PC is in, what my job considers, a high security sec group, so maybe the GPOs being applied to the PC as it connects to the domain is tying up the local profiles?

A:[SOLVED] access denied to rename local profile, logged as admin

nm, just asked a coworker. says a reboot will usually kill anything tying up the profiles, if not, he uses a tool called LockHunter to find out what is accessing the profile and kills it from there.

On this windows XP Pro laptop when I start the system it goes to the select profile screen. When I select the User it starts to load the profile and then immediately displays "saving settings" and then logs off. I have tried to start in all three safe modes but it still does the same logoff. I have booted to an XP Disk command prompt and ran chkdsk c: /r. Upon completion the system continues to load and reboot.

I have searched the net and not found any answers.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I am running XP professional on a NTFS formatted disk on a Toshiba Laptop
Yesterday I did something very stupid, now I have lost important photo's and can't find them again.

When logging on to my usual account a error messasge appeared saying that there was a problem with my profile and a new profile was created. When I logged on I found the data that was on my original profile and move (cut and paste -idiot.) I now know that this profile was temp, because when I restarted the machine that profile has disapeared along with the important data.

I have tried to find it using an undelete program which has found some but not all data. Is there a way of restoring the data?

Welcome to TSF!

Best bet for recovery is to remove the hard drive (using it could overwrite any data you are trying to recover), connect it to another PC, either internally or via an external enclosure, then run file recovery software on the drive.

Free recovery applications:

1 - Recover Files
2 - Recuva
3 - Restoration
4 - Free Undelete (NTFS only)
5 - Softperfect File Recovery
6 - Undelete Plus
7 - PCI File Recovery
8 - DriveRescue (direct download link)
9 - Ultimate Data Recovery
10 - Disk Investigator

Can't find my list of commercial apps, but these two come to mind:
GetdataBack
O&O DiskRecovery

Hi
I'm running a pc on Windows 76 Home Premium 32bit.
I have 2 user accounts set up, one for me, one for my wife. If I boot into windows and log in as either user the user profile loads without issue. If however, I log off OR switch user I get logged into a temporarily profile. This happens sporadically. Sometimes the computer behaves as it should and loads the correct profile. Other times it loads a temp profile. This never happens when logging from a first boot. I currently have to restart the machine to access my profile if the issue comes up. The temp profile can occur when logging in as either user. I can find no pattern in this behaviour. I keep auto update on so have to the hotfixes I should have etc. How should I go about logging this issue so I can post details and find a fix?
Many thanks,
Alex

Please post it to this topic and NOT to the BSOD forums.

I would also suggest backing up your stuff. This is in case the problem gets much worse and you're not able to access your normal profiles.

I have a user who keeps getting logged in with a "temp" profile. He can still access his own profile, but has to go through Explorer, then C:\Users\hisprofile\MyDocs, etc...

No error stating Win7 is using the temp profile, the only way he finds out is when he has nothing on his "desktop".

I did some research and found some registry hacks to clear this out, and it worked a few times (with reboots in between) but eventually returned.

I'm at the point now where I'm backing up his data, reimaging the machine, then restoring his data, but was wondering if there was a foolproof way to fix the "temp" profile issue without having to go through this process.
 

A:temp profile issues

I fixed this issue once before by creating a new proflie, moving all relavant data to the new profile and deleting the old profile. In my case, the user wanted a name that had already been given to windows with that particular name and the issue would repeat when using that name. Once the name was changed to something diff, and data was moved, this issue did not repeat.

I hope this information helps.

On some machines it does not launch. I remoted onto same machine and tried to launch manually but still would not launch and i seen error

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to access the item."

I copied the bat to the user desktop and it ran just fine.

Its the same antivirus on each machine and I cant see why it would work on some and not others.

There are no restrictions on running bat files

It seems to not want to run from the users c:\users\%username%\appdata\local\temp directory.

A:Temp profile issues come and go

Start by repairing any file system errors.

Make sure that the Fast User Switching service is on (if you keep both accounts active). Have you changed any other services from their default states?

Check that all automatic services are actually running after you boot (some will run and shut down, but they should all at least start when you try to start them manually).

Is it always one account or both? If just one, you might consider creating a new one before the problem worsens and copying the old one over.

Any TMP file that won't delete, is currently in use by one of your running programs. And, is nothing to worry about.

Why do you think that deleting this file would resolve your BMP problem?

As a BTW, I would start a post about this BMP problem, explaining where it is happening. In Internet Explorer, MS Paint, Paint Shop, some other app, etc.

Format the partition to kill the virus, then re-install win 7. It is the only way you can be sure to have removed them.

Hi first thanks so much for trying to help me as I'm going demented For two days now windows has been logging me on with this message quot you have been logged on with a temporary profile You cannot access your files and files created in this profile will be deleted when you log off To fix this log off and try loggging on later Please see the event log for details or contact you system administrator quot So firstly I googled this issue People on forums were saying to others with the problem that they needed to go into the registry and follow the instructions given I did that and can temporarily get my old profile back But the problem is whenever I turn the laptop off or restart I am back to square one again So I rang HP and they passed me onto Curry's where I bought it and they said I should reinstall windows Surely there is something else that will fix this without doing something that drastic If anyone can help me permenantly fix this I will explode with gratitude as I really can't take this laptop stress much longer

How to Fix Temporary Profile in Windows 7

Hi, new to forum, hope you can help.
Win 8.1.
Two users on this PC, myself as administrator and my son. He is getting the 'temp profile' issue. My profile is ok. I have seen the 'fixes' but haven't tried yet. As he has not long purchased his own pc and there is nothing of any importance he has saved on this joint pc, no files or photos, they are either saved on sticks or on clouds, can I just delete his profile or user account? Will it affect anything? Will it delete the 'proper' account or this temp profile? Or is there a way around this? Would this need to be solved before an upgrade to win 10? A lot of questions I know.

Thanks
MartiniMan

If you son has his own pc, I would just simply delete his account and that will be the end of the "temp profile" issue.
After that, run a system file check ( sfc /scannow ) to make sure your system is in proper working order.

Issue is Commonly seen when we Un Join and Re Join a PC on DOmain, 
I know the Fix for this However would like to know the cause?

Is it because the system fails to overwrite the Old Profile?

Right click on the Windows icon in the lower left corner, click search, type in the title of the doc and hit enter. Hope this helps you.
You can also use the search charm by putting your mouse pointer all the way to the right lower corner and click on "Search"...

Hi I will keep this as brief as possible - i have a user person B that was given a laptop by the colleague they replaced who i will refer to as person A they were using it logged on as person A when their account was deleted The laptop cached the credentials so they carried on working however no profile from temp Recovering files file sync took place as i presume they had no account They are all using redirected desktops When we were asked to create an account for person B i was asked to copy the files from Person A's profile however as soon as i logged out and logged in as person B changed the permissions on person A's folder in c users and opened it - there were no Documents or Desktop folders - obviously as they are redirected However on the server in the users redirected folder the files person B had been using are not there as they had not been synched I cannot log back on as person A due to SSID tomfoolery My two questions are - have the Recovering files from temp profile files been deleted - If not how can i get them back So far i have tried Recuva and restoring an old version of the c users folder both of which did not work nbsp Thanks James
