Rebuild a Windows 7 User Profile

1. Restart PC and Login as a
Local Admin.

2. Rename: c:users%username%

3. Export (just as a backup in
case you need it) and then delete registry key:

“HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsNTCurrentVersionProfileList”

(Look through each Profile key
under this reg key and view the “ProfileImagePath” to find which key is related
to which user)

4. Logout and login as the
original user and it will create a new profile for them.

If you do not delete the registry
key it will continually give a “temporary” profile to that user infinitely or
until you rename their c:users%username% folder back.
