    My win 10 User is behaving badly. How can I fix it without loosing it`


    Hi everyone!

    I've been working for weeks now to fix my user in win 10. Microsoft tried as well. They even gave me support money back since "It should have worked". Creds to them for that.

    - My user is ….am I allowed to say really bad words? IFFY.
    1 of 1000 minor things "it" changed, was the startup path. C:/Users/MyUserName/ONEDRIVE/skrivbord
    (Skrivbord is Swedish for Desktop. My Win 10 is English. All settings in English. I only have English/Swedish keyboard and spoofing for Office and Dragon Chrome.)

    My windows WORKS. My mail WORKS. Everything critical and important works.
    There is no viruses, malware, meltdown, Spectre or gremlins anywhere.

    This started a few weeks ago, when Malwarebytes found a nasty critter virus that changes startup stuffs. It removed it and all was good.
    Then logs started to ….look odd.

    Event viewer, shown that the same day that I removed the intruder, my drive H got Bitlocked. Bitlocker got turned on, ran on Drive H, confirmed and put the key where it should be.

    I have Win 10 HOME. Microsoft looked at the logs, and have no explanation.
    I have no drive H. Drive H is my virtual fixed choice for ISO.

    The final and 100% working solution is Format C: Then Install fresh Win 10 Home, and make a brand new user, linking my PC to my digital Win 10 without using any backups whatsoever.

    Comodo dragon got my passwords, bookmarks and por....interesting internet stuff.
    I have Win 10 HOME. (For a reason called Bitlocker). I am not syncing with Microsoft or anything else but google, since I have 0 devices and just use this PC.

    I have 2 HD extra internal storage in my PC where I have all my FILES, I want to keep.
    I have info for Steam, Azure, etc.

    I do not have info for the 2000 or so software, games, etc, I've hamstered since...hmm, Gunship 1986 on C64 (was the first game I bought, as a 12 year old kid)

    My windows works. My user works. My PST files (outlook) from 1999 works.
    A new user, WILL NOT WORK on all PST files. Nor have "links".

    But things are "iffy". And I want to fix my user! Or move it and keep its "links". (I'll explain but after 10 A4 pages, people stops reading)


    • Assume I know DISM, SFC, Image and most powershell commands and useage.
    • Assume I've had win 10, since 2014, when I upgraded from win 7, SOFTWARE wise, for the first time ever, since I first installed Windows 3.11, 1991, on a PC with 166Mhz CPU, 16MB RAM, and 120MB HD (IDE). Soundblaster of course!
    • I had to get 2 network cards then because not all had the new cool IPnetwork in their cards, so Token-ring was needed for our copyparties.
    • Assume I've got 3 different, hours long sessions with Microsoft GOOD techs who been remotely assisting me and using their tools.
    • I did a repair upgrade. That fixed some stuff. 3% of 100. Took 35 mins
    • Microsoft did the same repair upgrade, but as them, that took 2 hours and 20 mins
      (Esme, the Microsoft support person, reconnected when it was done, before I sent the request.....Creds for their support)


    That repair upgrade fixed about 50%.
    Which, is down to 20%.

    When I reboot. Things happens. BACKWARDS.
    Logs shows the most weird stuff. They can't be trusted. I don't have System restore on, claims the log.
    Microsoft watches me do a system restore, and confirms, the logs are wrong.

    They have no clue why.

    Only my user.

    The built in administrator, which I am using now to type this, works perfectly.

    Malwarebytes support tool AND personnel has helped to get Win 10 Firewall "working".
    ]It was working. Windows just said it wasn't. They fixed that.
    1 tiny issue solved, 999 minor issues to go.

    How do I keep my user? Clean it? Spank it? Force it to only use Mac for the rest of it life?
    I have windows logs I'd like to show. The logs are well know. What they say, I've never seen before.

    These are logs I've seen over 10 years. Only the past few weeks, they looked like this.


    Oh yeah, anyone know of a tool called "Account Profile Fixer"?
    Its from "Howtogeek", and got good words from them. But so did driverbooster....

    Anyone who got any suggestions how I can clean, replace, move, whatever, my user?
    I will try anything. If I can keep "the links" in it.

    Windows settings, picture, usersettings all that does not matter. I'll do all that.
    What I can not do, is "the links" the user has in it.


    If I did not care about my user, I would solve this in 1 evening
    One 100% working solution is format C:, no backup, no strings whatsoever to the user. New installation.
    New user. Connect to my Digital Win 10 HOME license. Dragon Chrome + FILES I have so I can get them back.

    That would probably be a good thing too, since I had this user since, 2002. Moving from Win 98.

    I've spent 2 weeks trying to find another 100% solution.
    I have tried everything I can think of myself, and used all the support I pay for.
    So, Im asking for help, from you folks.

    How do I "clean" my user?
    Ask me anything. If it leads to my user stops being....iffy, I'll do i, and answer. I do not mind giving out logs and info of my system that I shouldn't do. Because that's irrelevant if I don't find another solution anyway.

    Help....
    --Kurnn, Jonah The Swedish Goth.

    PS, I've added logs to show....weird logs. Not to solve them. But to show what my user is causing. Or whatever made my user ....iffy.

    Hmm, I cant seam to add a log file? I hope its ok I copy the text here instead:
    This is "Setuptact.log" from: C:\Windows\Logs\SetupCleanupTask

    I guess that must be the opposite of SHOUTING and is whispering instead.

    Hey

    Mind telling me how the heck I get my post to be readable for everyone?
    I see it in bright white text and black background.

    Edit: Um, I cant edit the post anymore? Is there a limit to that?
    I had WYSIWYG mode on. Took it off and removed most of the code.

    Just left the highlighted stuff. I didnt change any colors.
    Use bold, underlined, and wrapped the log in the end, so that would be clear.

    I use "Dark" (Legacy), skin. Does that matter?

    I want people to see the post, clear. Heh, not make it dim! =)

    Is this text different to my post?

    Edit 2: There is no EDIT button on my post anymore.

    I would. If there was an "edit post button". Its gone?
    Bloody edge! I am typing here as the Administrator user. I'll try my ….broken.....user.

    I bet that will work fine and its edge doing something idiotic that the forums bans me for automaticly.
    Sorry. I was trying to make it EASIER to read. No colors! Just bold, Headlines, a bulletlist and show the log.

    Are you interested or attempting to repair a user profile instead of creating a new one?

    Repair and fix my current user.

    A new user, on a formated drive, with a clean new win 10, would fix the 1000 minor issues I have.
    I'm looking for a solution that will do that, but keep my user.

    Gonna try the software Account Profile Fixer.

    Regular users are limited, (as is the norm on online forums), to a few minutes (this is mainly to prevent Spammers, who post and then wait an hour or two to edit in their junk)

    By the way, your issue with your post above was mainly due to colour tags, as you prefer one of the dark themes you have to be careful with colour as the majority of our users use the Light themes. the themes are designed to automatically adjust the colour of standard items (that the system Parses), but manual codes will override the system. If you wish to use colour to highlight parts of a post I would just suggest that you change the theme to default for a short time to check what others will see
