    Thanks. It took 10 minutes to restart, but unfortunately it's still a temporary profile. The name has remained changed tho and it hasn't created a new one.

    In that case, you might create a new account to see if it works properly. If so, you could make it an administrator, and use it instead.

    Attempted removal of temp account


    I tried to remove the temp account through the method which you wrote about. After completing the changes in the regedit, I restarted the computer; however, the temp account issue still remains. I am unsure what to do.
    Thanks

    Hello Mike, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Double check to make sure that the SID key without .bak for your user profile has the correct path for the ProfileImagePath value.

    In that case, try renaming the SID key with .bak at the end to only remove the ".bak" part from it, then restart the computer to see if the account will work properly afterwards.

    In that case, see if you are able to sign in to a different administrator account (ex: built-in Administrator), and see if you are able to rename the SID key in that account instead.

    What should happen after completing step 9? Will I be able to log back in to my original windows user account, just without the original user settings being present? Will all of my programs and files remain untouched? Thanks for your help Brink.

    Hello Kai, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Yes, you should be able to sign in as usual without anything being affected. The method in the tutorial is only to correct the path of the user profile folder in the registry to stop getting a temp profile.
