That happens when your user profile is corrupt. Fortunately, it can be fixed easily. First, you need to create a new account. If you don’t have any other user account on your computer, you can use the built-in administrator account. Restart your computer then press F8 before the Windows logo appears. In the “Advanced Boot Options” screen, select “Safe Mode” then hit Enter to boot.

In the login screen, select the “Administrator” account then select “Yes” to work in Safe mode. Next, click “Start,” “Control Panel,” “User Accounts” then create a new account. When you are finished, restart the computer in Normal mode then log in with the new user account you created. Start Windows Explorer then click “Tools” and then “Folder Options.”

Select “View” tab then select “Show hidden files and folders” and uncheck “Hide protected operating system files” then click “OK.” Now, navigate to “C:\Documents and Settings\[corrupt username]” then copy the following files to “C:\Documents and Settings\[new username]”:

  • NTUSER.DAT
  • ntuser.dat.LOG
  • ntuser.ini

Select “overwrite” when you are prompted. After this, restart your computer and log in to your new user account. You now have your old user account back in your new account.
