    Way to go! Very good. I found a tutorial from MS Support forum but it was written for Win 7. However, they say that it should also work for Win 10. After looking at the links provided in your last post (#101), I found them more appealing and really well explained. Another solution offered to do the data transfer is to use a third-party software like EaseUsTodo PC Trans. For the latter, there are 2 versions: free & paid; the problem is that the free version doesn't give one much latitude, meaning the amount of data one can transfer is limited.

    Thanks again for chiming in!.

    No, you are not being boastful, it is always good to do some good deeds in life. It always pays back one way or another. Believe me on that one!. Hence, my quote of the day: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.

    With that said, before pushing the envelope and going to the data transfer part, can you check first to see if your dism.exe command lines work fine and successfully in the new user account as Administrator. If not, there is no need to implement the data transfer as it would be a waste of time.
    Thanks for the nice comment. I could even boast a little bit about a project that I took on after leaving the active fire service, introducing two totally new fire suppression technologies, developed by the U.S. wildland fire community to the structural fire service. That took several years, but it did turn out well from my quite biased viewpoint, as the technology is now in use worldwide.

    Turning from that to something of actual importance, I changed the new user profile to an administrator one, and changed to it. I was then able to open a Windows PowerShell (admin) window, so with a certain amount of trepidation, entered dism /online /Cleanup-image /restorehealth, and pressed Enter.

    My anxiety was quickly relieved, for as soon as dism.exe started to run, it did something that I had never seen previously, dropping down a line and typing something; I did not bother to make a note of that, so don't know what it said. Next, there was another new line, which looked odd, but which was showing the progress percent, plus a 1 off to the right. The process seemed to be taking a long time, so I left the room to do something other than stare at the screen, but did return not overly long thereafter, where I saw a really nice message, namely that the dism.exe process had completed correctly.

    Sure seems to me that you called it completely correctly, that my current default admin profile is corrupt.

    Your further ministrations are awaited.

    So if Dism.exe command line ran successfully, that means, as you said, the new user account is good. That's exactly what we wanted before implementing the data transfer. Thanks to @VBF, you will find a link (in his post #101) for a nice tutorial on how to proceed with the data transfer. Once accomplished, I would suggest you make a system image backup before deleting the corrupt user account.

    Thanks for the link to the techbout tutorial; a quick look at it seemed to provide precisely the information I had been seeking. I see that you found at least one not-overly helpful site, I had found several, had not found the one I am going to use to ease the job of transferring from a corrupt profile to a new one.

    I took a quick look at the link that VBF posted, which looked as though it provides precisely the information I had been seeking. I have thanked him for the link. I will be using the information in that tutorial to do the transferring from the corrupt to the new profile. A full system image backup shall be created thereafter.

    I think you should do the system image backup before and after the data transfer. Before, is just in case something goes kerfllooey while doing the data transfer ( you can always roll back). After, is for when you think everything is in proper order and you are satisfied with the way your computer is working and it is to your taste. At this point, you can delete the old corrupt Administrator account and do the system image backup.

    There, I am giving you the link I found from MS support forum. You can always have a look at it. Like I said before, it was written for Win 7, but it seems to work also for Win 10:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...d-user-profile

    In this tutorial you will notice that there are 2 Parts, namely: My computer is on a domain & My computer is in a Network. You should go with the latter.

    Update: @Not Myself

    Just like I mentioned in my post to @VBF, I prefer the the tutorial he found. It seems to be more accurate and was made for Windows 10. The choice is yours.

    And the reason i had it to hand and posted it is because I have used it on Win10 and it was successful. That's not to say that it's the only solution of course but it worked for me.

    Before I go any further, I have a question about following the procedure in the tutorial: In "Now Create A New User Account," skipping down to "Transfer Data From Old to New User Account", it says to copy contents from corrupt profile to the new one, and then log on to the new profile.

    As I had been doing things with the new profile I created yesterday, having the tutorial available, I decided to start over, so I removed the new profile, which no longer appears in Users, and then created another new user profile. My question revolves around the fact that the new profile, which Windows Settings shows has been created, it does not appear in Users even after I tried a reboot, r. Although the tutorial does not say to do this, am I correct that I first need to log onto that new profile and let Windows set it up before it will show in my in-use corrupt profile, and that doing that will not have any deleterious effect on transferring to the new profile?

    As I am writing this, I realized that I have a second question; Assuming that I have set up and run the new profile, and returned to my in-use profile, that the procedure is to do the copying there, rather than making a USB copy, going to the new profile, and using the USB to copy into that new profile. That seems to be what is implied in the tutorial, but recalling the difficulties I had the one time I needed to create a new user profile, I want to be certain that I am going to do this properly.

    After creating the new user profile (Administrator), I think the first thing to do is to log in and let Windows set everything in the newly created account. After that, you can start following the tutorial for the transfer of data from the old profile to the new one.

    You are correct and that's what I have explained while answering your first paragraph. You have to log in the new profile and let Windows set it up in order to see it in "Users".

    Make sure to transfer (copy) the data (folders) one by one. It is well stipulated in the tutorial no to transfer all data at once. The reason is explained in the last section of the tutorial according to this screenshot below:

    In Some tutorials, they advocate to copy from the old profile to the new one. It seems that in some cases, you might have A UAC prompt saying that you don't have enough permission. In cases like this, you can click on "Continue". And if it still doesn't work, you can try copying from the old profile to a USB drive and then copy again from the USB dive to the new profile.
