    Can't get out of temporary profile after update


    So my computer woke me up in the middle of the night as it was trying to update, even though I have it set to not auto update. So I gave in and updated it, and upon starting up I got a Page Fault in a non paged area fault, and am now stuck in a Temporary profile and can not get back to my normal one. I have tried all of the suggestions on the internet and so far nothing has worked. I can see my profile still on my C drive. Is there anything I can do to recover my profile?

    I should never have updated it...

    :)

    Try to login into my profile but am redirected to temporary profile.

    In simple terms and step by step how to have my profile not be redirected to a temporary profile. Answers I have seen are too technical. Cannot figure out where to start on my computer to create a new user account as posts suggest. This started the
    day I updated to Windows 10.

  3. Windows 10 temporary profile error?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the issue description you are facing issue in editing some settings from a temporary profile. You need to login to your original (Administrator) profile to change those settings.

    I would suggest you to change the account type to administrator, if it is not and see if it helps. Try the steps provided below to change the account type.

    • Login with the temporary profile.
    • Press Windows key + X.
    • Select Control Panel from the list.
    • Select Large icons from the view by drop down menu.
    • Click on User Accounts.
    • Click on Change Account type.
    • Select Administrator radio button and click OK.

    Hope this would help. If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of the proposed suggestion, we will be happy to assist you.

    Regards,

    Temporary Profile on Logon

    Hi Elaine,

    Being signed in with a temporary profile may occur if the user account is not loaded correctly or has been removed from the system. For us to properly assist you in rectifying this unusual behavior, supply more information by answering these questions:

    • Is your PC connected to a domain?
    • Were you able to load the same profile on your computer before using the new hard drive?
    • What exactly is being logged in as "temporary profile"? Is it another user account on your computer?
    • Aside from using the new hard drive, have you made any recent changes to your device prior to this happening?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    Your reply is greatly appreciated.
