    Best Source for a Default User Profile?

    I just upgraded to the Anniversary Update on my desktop PC running W10 Pro and discovered I could not login to a new user account. I copied the Default user profile from my Laptop (running the AU version but W10 Home, not W10 Pro) and that worked.

    What is the best source of a Default user profile to fix such new account problems? I could use:

    1. The Default profile for my PC from the back up done before the AU upgrade
    2. The Default profile from my laptop running the W10 Home AU version - proved to work
    3. The Default profile from a clean install of W10 Home on my laptop from Jan 16 (pre AU)
    4. The Default profile extracted from the W10 Pro AU ISO installation file

    Which is the best solution?
