    You would want to change it to have the exact same path and name as your correct user profile folder.

    It didn't seem to work. The background is black, start button just gives me a loading symbol and does load, and I can't run many applications. I tried without the name change then with.After changing the name I pressing the off button since I can't press the windows key. The name got automatically changed back. Its also running much slower for some reason.
    Should I try and get the stuff I removed from malwarebytes back. Oh and this seems to be a different user that my original.

    Since using "C:\Users\Stanley" for the value didn't work for you, you might create a new account to use instead, and copy whatever files (ex: pictures, documents, etc...) you wanted from the old "C:\Users\Stanley" folder to the new one.

    Afterwards, you could delete all traces of the old Stanley account and any of it's temp profiles.

    Ok. I will try one more time with the name thing and then do that. Also am I suppose to have something called "Migrated" in the registry like the other users?

    I'm not sure what you mean for "Migrated". If you like, post a screenshot showing it to see what it may be.

    Hi Brink. I installed a program for some schoolprojects, but it came with a malware. I installed Malwarebytes to clean it up. I removed the dangerous programs, but after i restarted my pc i came to a temporary user. I checked my cmd and it shows C:\Users\TEMP\Desktop
    I followed the instructions and when I restarted my pc its still a temporary user in cmd and i cant even use my taskbar.
    This is how my register editor looks:
    Image - TinyPic - Gratis foto's delen en afbeeldingen & video's hosten
    I hope you can help me as quick as possible i need to do some homework on my pc!

    Hello Yustahkaka, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Your screenshot shows that all user account profile references have been removed from your registry.

    If your "C:\Users\<username>" folder still exists for your account, then you might see if restarting the computer may have it recreate the profile for your account.
