    It usually gets deleted after it updates.

    To see all users all the system, you can use the following method. Create Manage User Accounts Using Utility Netplwiz

    Did you use netwiz to see if it is listed in there? Belarc should show it also.

    That profile has to be there. It should show up in the list on Netplwiz.

    See if this works. How to Delete a User Profile from the Registry Robert Borges Blog

    Just follow the instructions. Always make a backup of the registry before doing anything.

    I shrink the registry, where I can still see where to go, then double check before I do anything.

    If you just want to go in and see if that user is in there. It will not make any changes, because you are just searching for it.

    I have been having the same problem for a few weeks as well--since November 20th, I think. I've had no success with netplwiz either.

    ABI, is there any chance you just started using a new Windows phone?

    That should not make any difference.
