    Hi Brink! Great site. Today I've experienced the same problem - when I restarted my computer and loaded into windows and entered my password it signed me into some weird looking temp profile. Fortunately it was an easy fix - I simply signed out and signed back on and it put me in my normal profile. Does that mean the problem is fixed? Do I have to do anything to prevent this from happening again? It was really kind of strange, just happened out of the blue

    Thanks
    Hello ayylmao212,

    As long as you're back to your normal working profile, you're good to go.

    Alright thanks for confirming Microsoft should definitely work on fixing this issue as it is kind of widespread right now.

    I have discovered that when I upgrade of any Windows 10 build and it signs me into a temporary user profile, I just open a command prompt with run as administrator and type CHKDSK /F and it will require a reboot to run the scan. Once the scan has completed (with or without errors found) and the system reboots it fixes the problem and I can log in with my original MS account profile or local account profile. Works every time. Go figure.

    Did just as described, Everything i did was following your guide accordingly. Didnt work so i did a system reset where you keep most of your files just some stuff that goes away. When the reset was done my computer was cleaned out completely, so mad because i lost a shit ton of Pictures from my Europé trip. How did this even happen? Started a a soft reset but it ended up in a full wipe of my data, help a brother out please

    Hello Donboss, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you did a full reset of Windows, then the files are gone unless you have them backed up somewhere.

    I didnt, you know you can choose whether you want to delete all files or keep your files. I pressed keep, still nothing left except of League of legends and Skype, have no idea how that worked out :/

    If you like, you could just copy the files from that location back to your folders.
