    I actuallu worked on it before seeing your response. What situation is now:
    These are the accounts seen on logging into computer:
    Administrator
    Local
    Administrator
    no password

    GHC80
    **@outlook.com
    Administrator
    access password #1

    Gordon E
    Local Account
    access password #2

    In C:\ users are:
    Administrator
    Default
    Gordon E
    Public, and lastly
    Gordon E.DESKTOP-CGSLCFV
    This account I do not understand its purpose. I see that the 7 character extension is different from that pre clean install.
    From the above does all seem as it should be, please?
    Thanks for you continued help. Winodws 10 seems good at tying me in knots!

    chipwood,

    It looks like you successfully created the local account "Gordon E".

    While signed in to the "Gordon E" account, you can type echo %UserProfile% in a command prompt and press Enter to see which user profile folder it opens to know which one is being used for this account.

    IIt's
    Code:
    Gordon E.DESKTOP-CGSLCFV
    . I'm curious why you mentioned the tip.
    Incidentally my old Inspiron 560 showed up too after the clean install with a different extension. It seems a mystery how that could be.

    Overnight the files and folders that were on Gordon E Desktop , Documents etc have moved to ghc80 account. I want to work from Gordon E, Can I get my files and folders back where I want them without risk of this recurring?

    I mentioned it to confirm which user profile is actually being used by the account to make sure it didn't get deleted.

    Before doing this below, do the same above for the "GHC80" account to verify which user profile folder it's using.


    If the original "Gordon E" profile folder isn't corrupted or used by "GHC80", you could try using the method below to switch them. At step 8, change the ProfileImagePath value to be the "C:\Users\Gordon E" path. Skip steps 10-13 since you already have the "Gordon E" folder.

    If it fails to work, then change the ProfileImagePath value back to "C:\Users\Gordon E.DESKTOP-CGSLCFV".

    That explains that then. The "GHC80" account is using the "C:\Users\Gordon E" profile folder.

    You DO NOT want to change the user profile folder as posted above.

    How the dickens then do I get all my stuff in to Gordon E, or if more suitable Gordon E Desktop-xxx? It's inconvenient having it all in GHC80. Do I, and can Idelete GHC80 without losing files?

    You could use the GHC80 account instead if wanted.

    However, you can also copy over any files (ex: documents, pictures, etc...) you wanted from the "Gordon E" folder to the "Gordon E.DESKTOP-CGSLCFV" folder.

    I suppose I could use GHC80, as it appears to have most of the files and folders, but I'm confused how to move contents of Gordon E and Gordon E Desktop*** over. I thought GHC80 would be in C:\users, but there's no sign there.I use my local administrator account, so why am I getting this error?-21825759-retro-cartoon-texture-isolated-white.jpg
