Temporary Profile Error

When Windows states that you have loged on with a temporary profile, do this:

Check if you have a profile on the server or on the machine.

If you have a roaming profile on the server, go to the profile directory of the username an rename the folder to username.old.

Next open the registry on go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

click the S-1-5-21-xxxxx folders and see if your username is in it. If you found it, rename it to S-1-5-21…blabla… .OLD.

Do the same for a locale file, but instead renaming your profile folder on the server, rename it on the computer you have trouble with.

Do the local rename too if you have a server profile.

Reboot, and a new profile should be made.
