    Hi!

    I am repairing a PC right now that says on loggon that:

    **********************************************
    Windows could not load the local stored profile
    and
    Windows could now find any local profile and logged you off
    **********************************************

    These are transaltions from finnish..

    Now i read that the ntuser.dat might be damaged.. most likely tru a damaged hdd.. thats what i am scanning right now.. but if the hdd is ok how could i repair a damaged ntuser.dat so that i can loggon to the user account again?

    Lauri

    PS: Ahh and i tried to install xp over the old one (repair installation) but it didnt help

    Thank you for stating that you resolved the issue and how - too many people post a new thread and never report back, leaving people that use google searches for help (I'm guilty of it) hanging in the air wondering what happened. ^_^
