    No problem.

    Nope. You don't need to do anything in the left pane. Only to modify the path in the right pane to correct it.
    Everything hunky dory now. Thank you ever so much.

    Hey Shawn My name is Christian Miller,
    I have followed your instructions with OCD precision and had the same problem maxandmillie had.
    So I followed the reply chain and It has put me right back into a temp account.
    what shall I do from here; Because I've tried this three times and have gotten nowhere

    Thanks, Christian

    Hello Christian, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Usually when you keep getting a temp profile despite trying the normal fix, you'll need to create a new account to use instead. If the new account also gets the temp profile issue, then you may need to reinstall Windows.

    So that means I have to reinstall all of my apps and programs? because that will take a couple days and I was going to do a DJ gig in two days.

    I really hope that's not the case because if so I have to pay to reactivate my DJ mixer and that's another $100 out of pocket I don't have right now.

    Please let me know!

    Thanks, Christian

    I would recommend to try creating a new account first to see if it works properly when signed in to it. You may need to create new shortcuts for your installed software though.

    If that doesn't help, then you could also try a repair install without losing anything.

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    If you clean install, reset, or refresh Windows, you would indeed have to reinstall all software afterwards. Does your purchased DJ Mixer software come with a license key that you would just need to enter to activate without having to pay again?

    Got exactly this problem. To start with it was named correctly, so I went thru the steps described above. Then it was named incorrectly so I went through those steps. Now it just keeps generating new temporary profiles (scrolling up through numbers each time). I've included some pics below. vickerse is the right username.

    Serves me right for doing software updates :/. It did load initially after the updates tho.

    All advice appreciated! Please and thank you.

    Hello SBEV, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    As a test, change the data value of the ProfileImagePath DWORD for the ...1001 key to C:\Users\vickerse, delete the ...1001.bak key, and restart the computer.
