Solved: Computer takes very long to log in, and having Temporary Profile issues.

Q: Solved: Computer takes very long to log in, and having Temporary Profile issues.

Hello; this is my first time using these forums. I've been told to be as detailed as I can, so I'll try and put my experience and problems down as comprehensively as possible. I'm running Windows 7 (64-bit).

Yesterday morning, my computer took unusually long to log in. I didn't think much of it because it worked fine for most of the day besides being slow now and then when opening a program or two (The main one I recall is having trouble opening Libre Office).

Late in the evening, however, my Opera browser had some kind of problem while I was on Youtube. I'm not sure what I did, but it's happened once before; the video took up the entire screen, was difficult to manage because I couldn't bring it back to the usual size, and I had to close down the browser itself. When it started up again, Opera was having the same issue as the last time this happened; the top and bottom of the screen had changed and I couldn't access the Minimize/RestoreDown/Close buttons. I figured I would have to re-install Opera again, since this fixed the same sort of problem last time, but I tried restarting my computer just in case.

The computer took a long time to log in again, and it seemed like it had frozen. After waiting for a few minutes and seeing the loading icon wasn't moving, I used the Power button to shut it off; unfortunately I noticed the icon moving again just as I did this.

I started it up again after that, and it took several minutes to start up when it normally takes less than one. I think it spends the normal time booting up, but logging in takes abnormally long (it lingers on the "Welcome" screen). When it finally does log in, I would get put into a temporary profile.

While all my files do seem to still be present, my desktop is empty except for browsers, game icons, and a few programs. My text files, documents, folders and the like are elsewhere (but seem to still be present), and none of my programs' preferences are saved (my browser settings are reset, my instant messengers don't remember my login info, etc.). I wouldn't be so worried, but the long login time concerns me, and I hoped I could put things back to the way they were before.

My anti-virus didn't turn anything up after this began (I have Spybot - Search And Destroy and Webroot SecureAnywhere).

A friend who directed me here for assistance tried to help before sending me to the forums.

First, he directed me to reboot in safe mode and attempt to use System Restore. I was able to get into safe mode, but it still took a long time to log in, it still put my into a temporary profile, and there were no restore points available.

Next, I followed the directions here http://www.sysprobs.com/fix-temporary-profile-windows-7 up to the 2.f section. It seems that I am now out of the "temporary profile" loop, but nothing has changed except that this profile is no longer considered temporary. On my first attempt to log out and back in after following those instructions, I had the chance to log into a new "Other User" profile, but it required a name and password which I could not fulfill (I didn't have a password on my usual account, since it was the only one). After logging back into this account (titled "Owner", which isn't the same as my old one), that new one seems to be gone anyway. The accounts that remain are "Owner" and "Guest". Owner is marked as an Administrator, and Guest is "off".

When those instructions didn't work, I was told to go here. I think that covers everything. Thank you in advance for your time and any help you can give.

Preferred Solution: Solved: Computer takes very long to log in, and having Temporary Profile issues.

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey guys,

Yesterday, I shut down my computer. A few hours later when trying to log back in, I get logged onto a blank profile, which I assume is a temporary profile.

Curiously the ProfileImagePath string under key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\S-1-5-21-842173820-3506557639-1618326103-1004 is pointing to C:\Users\Mike_2.Mike-PC instead of C:\Users\Mike_2, which I assume is a temporary/alternate profile. (which I didn't create)

This has happened before, but usually a few restarts fixed the problem, however, that doesn't seem to be working now.

My question is, is there a way to reassociate the profile with the correct user folder? Or do I have to transfer everything over to a clean profile?
 

A:Solved: User profile dissasociated from account/logging onto temporary profile?

Its not an association issue, the user profile is corrupt, and is replaced by a temporary one.

Best thing to do is create a new user account, and migrate to that.

Hey All-

I just reinstalled Windows on my laptop. It has a miniPCI wireless card and Intel 10/100
Ethernet card.

When it starts up it takes quite a while to connect to either my wireless network or wired network; probably somewhere around two - three minutes after I log on it finally connects.

The workstation/server/wzc, etc. services are started already even when the laptop's not connected yet. The icons don't show up for a while in the tray, but the second they do, it connects fine.

What could be causing this? It's driving me nuts!

Thanks,

Joe

Dear experts,
 
For some time now, my laptop stopped giving me notifications/pop-ups when the battery is low and to plug into a power source--that seemed like a virus to me.  Then, a few days ago, while working on battery, it died and when I tried to restart, it booted into a temporary profile and keeps booting into a temporary profile.  All of my data on the HD seems intact. I've done the following in an attempt to fix the problem:
 
        --  I renamed the temporary files (the .bak and current files) in the registry at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
 
This did not work--when I rebooted, it merely created another .bak file and booted me again into a temporary profile
 
        --  I tried to do a restore to a point prior to the date of when my system quarantined a suspicious file (prior to March 8th);  when I did this, nothing appeared to be different--it still booted me to a temp profile
 
      --  I then did error-checking on the local disk and checked both options: Automatically fix the file system errors and Scan for/attempt recovery of bad sectors
 
This did not work either.  I did not do anything further like try and create a new user profile and copy all of my data over.  Please advise what I might be able to do to rectify this problem.

Good morning all,

Yesterday I ran into a strange issue with one of my domain users on a shared workstation. I'm not sure if this is happening to a few other users since many people use this workstation. A user would attempt to login to the machine, however would receive notifications that he's being logged in with a temporary profile. I think, no big deal... I'll go through and clear out his profile on the machine right? Wrong.

This time around, there is 1) No old user folder for his username. 2) There is no SID for the user in the registry. 3) When running whoami /user and getting the SID for the user that way, there is clearly no profile for this user's SID.

Now I don't know what to do in order to resolve the temporary profile issue for this person. I believe none of this information exists because a profile has never been made for him since the computer has been implemented. Searching around Google has numerous suggestions about clearing out the profile from the registry, but I can't find anything that says what to do when said profile doesn't exist.

Any ideas?

Hello all, hope you can solve my problem. A problem has been plaguing me where every time I turn my computer on, I'm logged into a temporary profile. This is remedied with a restart, but I'd rather not deal with the hassle. This problem arose after I did a scan with Advanced SystemCare. Needless to say, I probably won't be using it again...

Dears,
We are installing this antivirus product F-Secure Client Security on hundreds of Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit machines on the client's domain. Problem is it takes very long time some times up to 6 hours for installation to complete.
We tested when the same machine was taken out of the domain into Workgroup and installation just takes 5mins which is normal.
We have consulted with F-Secure vendor support and they have concluded that some winapi function related to service creation hangs on customer machines when services are created. And they recommend to get support from Microsoft experts on this.
Can you give us some guidance on how to troubleshoot this further and resolve the issue.

Thank you.

We have users on Windows 7 Enterprise machines.  No one has a roaming profile. Users cannot install programs.  The users move around so they don't use the same machine all the time and there may be 20 profiles on one machine.  They don't
always logout but the machines are restarted once a week at least.   Occasionally we may delete profiles on the machines but this is a remote site so we seldom do.  Users primarily use remote apps. served up either by Citrix or web interface. 
Little is done locally other than printing.  All machines are imaged with the same software. All users do the same thing.  One user in an office of six machines, can only login to three of the machines with a temporary profile.  She has no
profile under Users.  There is no .bak registry entry.  I cannot locate anything in the registry that points to this user.  I checked HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE|SOFTWARE|MICROSOFT|WINDOWSNT|CURRENT VERSION|PROFILELIST.  There were 20 profiles but

A:Windows 7 Enterprise - User logs in with temporary profile - 3 different machines/no roaming profile?

Thanks.  She's working on the computer and does not logoff and back on quickly.  I just rechecked and there absolutely is not a .bak with her name.  On either computer.  I did find one for Temp and one for another user so now I have a
second user getting the profile issue.  I renamed that one and when the other user logged in, he got his profile. 

Guess I will just re-image the computers although I'd like to figure it out but I don't have the spare time to waste and don't want my user to keep getting the temp profile.  My company won't pay for the support and frankly, in all the years I've
been in IT, I've never had MS resolve one issue for me.  Not worth paying for.  Oh well, thanks for your suggestions.  If I have time to devote to this and figure anything else out, I will post the answer.

A:the computer takes way too long to shut down

Here are some steps you can take to try to speed up Windows Shutdown. Before editing the registry, be sure to either create an image of your system partition or backup the registry. If you don't know how, please ask.
 
 1) Make sure "clear pagefile at shutdown" is not enabled:
start - run - regedit
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management]
 
Set ClearPageFileAtShutdown value to 0
 
 
2) Start - Run - Regedit
Navigate to the following Registry key:
HKEY CURRENT USER\Control Panel\Desktop
Double click on the AutoEndTasks entry and replace the 0 with a 1 in the Value data text box
 
For the next two, if the dword value indicated does not exist, create it:
 
Double click on the WaitToKillAppTimeout entry in the right pane and change the Value data to 2000
 
Double click on the HungAppTimeout entry in the right pane and change the Value data to 1000
 
Reboot
 
3) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
Right-click on WaitToKillServiceTimeout and change it to 2000

Hi. I'm having this problem where when I tried to log into my computer it gave me this thing that my user login has failed and a temporary profile had been created. I was looking at other form posts with this problem and going through the steps. But while I'm in safe mode at the moment I still can't get into my administrative account on my computer.

processor: intel core 2 duo e7500 @ 2.93GHz
6 GB RAM
When the computer turns on, it turns on very fast and goes into windows very fast, it is ready to use in about one minute.

However, here is the problem: If I put the comptuer to sleep, then wake it up, it takes very long, maybe 6 minutes. Also, it does not wake up right away. In order to wake up the computer, this is what happens:
1) press any key to wake up computer
2) computer will start running, but monitor stays black
3) computer suddenly shuts off all power
4) at this point, it is necessary for me to manually press the "reset" button on the CPU
5) computer will start running again
6) screen says "resuming windows"
7) wait 4 minutes
8) windows finally loads.
This problem has always been there but i never tried to fix it, but now it is very annoying to have to wait so long every time i wake up the computer. What can be the cause of this problem? Is it most likely a hardware problem or software? If it is hardware, what can be wrong? Could the power supply be bad?

Any ideas would be very appreciated and helpful

Thanks!

If I put the comptuer to sleep, then wake it up, it takes very long, maybe 6 minutes.When the computer turns on, it turns on very fast and goes into windows very fast, it is ready to use in about one minute.For this reason I have found it easier to just turn it off when not in use.I generally see no reason to click the same amount of tabs, and not just turn it off -Regards -

Good Job on the Hi Res photos. Does this happen after the computer posts? Do you hear any beep codes?
Take a look in your BIOS to see if you can turn off any extended tests also.
IF none of this helps, try unplugging various devices one by one and boot to possibly narrow down the issue.
PS that computer shipped with Vista or XP did the issue start after upgrading the OS?

My computer takes a long time to boot up to where I can successfully log onto the Internet (about 6-8 minutes). I have McAfee and Spy Doctor and scan every day, so I don't have Spyware (I just went through a whole cleanup processes, due to spyware, from the antivirus help room on this site. Any suggestions as to what would cause this? Once I'm on the Internet, everything works fine. I'm using a 4 year old Dell with XP

A:Computer takes a long time to boot up

What are the hardware specs for your dell? McAfee slows down any system a lot, so that is contributing to the problem. Do you have a lot of programs running at startup. Defragment your hard drive.

Hello everyone,

The attached video will NOT win the Youtube film of the year award, however, I hope that someone might be able to help. My Dell XPS8700 is like a 16 year old, friendly one minute and totally nuts the next for no reason at all!

A:Computer seems to boot twice and takes a very long time

"This video is Private" is the message I get when I try to view it.
Judging by symptoms it could be
Power supply

Hard disk bad sectors or file system
MB, 3v CMOS battery gone empty
If you fix problem with video, something else might be gleamed from it.

I did some time on google looking for an answer to this problem, with no definite luck my figure it that some piece of software is pausing the shutdown.

I start my computer all is fine and good. I then try to shut my computer down.
Vista shuts down in about 20 seconds. This is how my computer normally works.

But if i get on the internet and am on for more than 15 minutes or so, the pages take a long time to load. When i try to restart Firefox, an error box comes up telling me that Firefox is already running.

I check task manager and it is, when i try to end the process nothing happens. In order to fix this problem i have to restart my computer. When i attempt to shutdown the computer the desktop just sits there for almost 5 minutes before windows decides to log off and shut down.

I have run avg 8, Norton, and Spybot S&D. In hopes of finding a bug somewhere but nothing has set off the security flags.

This has been happening for almost a month, two weeks ago i did a format and reinstalled all of the programs i had, thinking that it might be a virus of some kind. This still did not help.

I have also reinstalled Firefox multiple times and it has not helped.

Attached is a screen capture of my desktop. I have put icons of all the programs i use on there.

I run visa home premium, core 2 duo 2.0 ghz, 3 gigs ram, geforce 7600.
 

A:Computer takes a long time to shut down.

The Problem turned out to be caused by Norton's Firefox toolbar, Maybe a memory leak or something. Norton told me they are aware of the problem and are trying very hard to find and implement a solution.

Until that time, I have uninstalled Norton 360 2.0 and am now using Zone Alarm Security Suite. Haven't decided whether I will go back to Norton; lately it has been nothing but disappointments from them.

Hello-
My computer has begun taking a very long time to start up, usually around 7-10 minutes. Running xp service pack three. Programs take a long time to open but generally run well once they have started. When I look in task manager there seems to be too many processes running. I have disabled many of the processes that were being run automatically at start up but this hasn't helped at all. I've also run spybot, adaware, and Malwarebytes' anti-malware which have all turned up nothing. Any help or advice would be appreciated. (Sorry for originally posting in the wrong forum).

MY COMPUTER searching problem
This could be a hardware or software problem, im unsure... im currently having a problem, when i click on "My Computer" the window pops up with nothing inside (normally shows c drive and cd drives, etc) - all i have is the little torch flashing from side to side... after about 2 mins all the drives appear.

while having this problem i opened another window and typed c: in the address bar... the contents of my hdd appeared quick... i tried it with all other drives and they all show up fine... its just when i go through the "My Computer" icon they don't appear straight away.

once they appear once they re-appear every time i try again... until i restart in which the process begins again.

I have no idea how this all started, perhaps a registry problem? I tried using CCleaner and Advanced Windowscare personal, they both do a good job but did not fix the problem. I am using XP Professional sp 2 and have 2 Gig of RAM.

Thanks for any help.

When I try to restart or turn off my pc it takes a long time to log-off, a long time to save my settings and a long time to finally shut down. I tweaked the registry to kill programs when I shutdown and also I downloaded the User Hive Control thing to make logging off but it didn't help.

EDITE: I use windows XP SP2 btw
 

A:Computer takes too long to shut down or restart

Do you know if explorer.exe closes down. (Such as the task bar and desktop icons) or are they still visable. Do you get the Saving settings information window appearing? When you close down can you check to see if there are any major programs in task manager.

Have you tried starting in safe mode and shutting down does it still take alot of time to close down?

Also you can try an selective startup (only starts key services) and see if that takes a long time shut down.

I have an HP Z800 Workstation with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.

When I start the computer it seems to be ready in somewhere under a minute after the desktop comes on, meaning there are no spinning circles the mouse moves smoothly etc.
However if I try to launch one of the programs in the taskbar, Firefox, Thunderbird, it takes at least seven to ten minutes for the program to come on and be ready.

At this point if I click Start>All Programs it is completely empty with no icons or folders at all in there and will be for about the same amount of time.
The Start menu freezes open like that and all I can do is to wait.

And wait I do because it makes it much worse if I hold in the power button and turn the computer off because then I can usually not go past that black screen that comes on for a brief second before it goes on the desktop.

I have very few things that are active in msconfig so I have no idea what's going on and why the computer takes so long to start.

Any ideas?

Thanks

A:Computer takes a long time to start

Test your hard drive for errors and do a scan for bad sectors. I feel your drive might be trying to write to faulty sectors which is why you have to wait for so long.

Also use MalwareBytes Antimalware to make sure you don't have adware/spyware running.

Hey all!

I've been experiencing stability problems on/off with my rig, but now they seem to have been stabilising (hurr durr).

I've recently bought a 1TB harddisk and 4 additional GB of Corsairs XMS3 DHX RAM, bringing me up to a total of 8GB.

Now, I tried to install 6 GB first, in tri-channel mode, and it worked fine.
When I installed the remaining two in dual dual-channel mode, however, my profile will not load, and I am given a temporary user profile. All my personal preferences are gone, including firefox bookmarks, desktop shortcuts, start menu preferences etc.

I'm posting a query to corsair as well simultaneously, but do any of you know or have a clue as to what might cause my problem? Or more importantly: how I can fix it?

I ran the memory diagnostics tool included in vista, and it told me I had a memory problem, but did not specify what.

Thanks for all help. It is much appreciated!

Edit: Tried safe mode. It was stuck on loading files for a long time also.


1.Check start-up programs,they can increase the boot-up time. You might have to disable some of them...

2.Check your HDD, it defines the boot-up time.If the hard drive has any problem then that's it.
Damaged HDD often gets system load much slower.

3.Scan your PC for malwares. Infected system can be the answer to your question

Yesterday I had a the unfamous 0X745f2780 error and I was able to fix that.Then I scanned my computer with Spybot, Ad-Aware, McAffee and vaccinated with SpywareBlaster. I also intsalled Mozilla Firefox the day before though it didnt seem to cause any problem. Then I decided to defragment and do a chkdsk and fix the errors. The first chskdsk corrected a lot of errors on the C drive then it rebooted and started again so I decided to skip it. Then my computer froze so I resetted it and then let the chkdsk run again 2 times then it rebooted. Since then my computer takes absolutely forever to load but once it's loaded, it seems to work fine except that oddly enough, the windows XP themes have disappeared so I'm stuck with the classic ones and msn seems to be a bit wonky but it make or not be related. The system recovery wasn't activated so I guess I can't use that. The only thing I have is a SpywareBlaster snapshot which I suppose is totally useless in that case.

Any ideas what I could do to fix that?

A:Computer takes a long time to load after chkdsk

Okay, one possible theory is that chkdsk found some bad sectors and you lost some System data. The missing Themes might be corrected by Start>Administrative Tools>Component Services>Services>Themes>Properties and making sure that it is set for "Auto" and the service is Started.

Please report the result of this.

Chkdsk does not "create" problems however it does sometimes cause them to be made "more aggravated". Simply put, you might have to do a Repair Install to fix the problem, unfortunately. Maybe running "sfc /scannow" might do the trick, but lately I'm kind of weak on this option/method and would rather do the more-reliable (but it takes longer) option of the Repair Install.

You should keep running chkdsk, as sometimes HD's that have serious errors continue to degenerate into complete loss of functionality, and by monitoring the HD you can possibly get ahead of the situation and start backing up data inorder to prepare for the permanent loss of the HD. Also, it is a waste of time to attempt to fix a O/S Installation on a HD that is getting ready to die permanently.

Good Luck

Hello there, I am new to these boards.

I need some help with making my computer run more quickly. There are 2 problems I have noticed.

I have a new Thinkpad T61 which I bought only a month ago, I use XP SP3 it takes almost 4 minutes in total from hitting the power button to being able to use the internet. A screen before a login screen says "Windows is Starting up..." and that stays there normally for at least a minute, that is the brunt of the problem.

Also I noticed when I am using FireFox alot, it freezes up and it says Page Not Responding on top but then after about 10 seconds usually its fine. Any ideas on either of these?

Here are the programs installed on my computer:

AIM
Mozilla
MS Office 2007
Adobe Reader
eBay Turbo Lister
iTunes
Quicktime Player
WMP

and then other things that came with the comp that look important (Access Connections, PC Doctor, etc) I deleted the excess advertised programs that come with computers (not on my comp but example free AOL and such).

Thanks for your help!

Tom

A:Computer takes incredibly long time to start, any help?

gonna need more info. what are your comp specs? ram? cpu speed?

without that info, i can say: run ccleaner, defrag your hdd (with something like perfect disk 7), and eliminate unnecessary start up programs (start-up inspector).
