    Hi Carl,

    Nothing much can be done about user profile corruption. You may have to copy the account data to a new user account.

    How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile in Windows XP:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811151

    Per-user customizations are not carried forward to the new user profile.

    What about a corrupt Default User Profile? Researching that yesterday
    only found one complicated solution which I was hesitant to suggest.

    Hi Gerry,

    Good question! Haven't faced that situation before, but if that happens (should be a rare thing to occur since the OS does not write to the Default User profile.) In case that happens, I would look into the %windir%\repair folder for a fresh NTUSER.DAT, created when installing Windows.

    >> found one complicated solution which I was hesitant to suggest


    Interesting! Perhaps you can send it via PM if you don't want to post it here.

    It is not my problem. It cropped up yesterday in
    microsoft.public.windowsxp.perform_maintain and there are few reports on
    the problem. I just thought it is the type of problem you enjoy.

    Post 6 in this thread seems to deal with your problem but it requires
    some computing skills which might deter me from taking on the task:

    You can simply copy the All Users and Default User profiles from any
    other Windows XP installation to replace the corrupt ones on another
    machine.

    Re: fix corrupt profle

    Yes. That would work. Also make sure that the %systemdrive% and %windir% locations are same in the other XP system (where you're copying from) as well. However, I would first look at the %windir%\repair folder for a replacement copy.
