    Profile corrupted?


    On booting, my Desktop and Taskbar have become almost empty. Start has lost almost all of its tiles, some are blacked out. The Store cannot be accessed. Most icons which remained or which I re-created do not launch their app or file. A few which work look like their app has lost its data and Edge for example seems to have reverted to year zero, welcoming me repeatedly to the new Edge, without its customisation. All pre-disaster Restore Points have been wiped. In Recovery I tried a Repair restart, without success. I did not try other options until i have received advice. I do not want to lose apps and files.


    I understand all this will all have been the result of the Personal / User Folder / Profile becoming corrupted. I have opened it and only found a few Library folders, most of them empty.


    I do have an Aomei Backup disk image, created after the November update. What should I do to repair this please?

    Corrupted User Profile

    Hi,

    There maybe a couple of reasons behind this misbehavior such as a corrupted system file. However, we would like to be able to verify which process exactly is corrupted.

    • When you install, does it give you any form of error message when it fails?
    • What other processes doesn't go through on the said User account?

    As per troubleshooting, you may refer to
    Likhitha V
    's response on this thread. See if it applies to you. However,
    just to give you a heads up. The steps are about creating a new user profile and deleting the current one. I suggest you back up your files so you may be able to transfer it. You can also find information about it on the same thread.

    We'll be waiting for your response. If you have any other concerns, don't hesitate to come back to us.

    Profile corrupted?

    Lost default photo viewer after profile rebuild


    Thanks Brink. I've tried those steps before i started searching Google. After the profile rebuild i don't have the Photo app listed to choose to make it default in either the system settings for default apps or the Open With option.

    I can't even find it doing a search. Seems to have been removed somehow with the profile rebuild, which doesn't make sense.

    Might be helpful to list what i've done Profile corrupted? :) I've done the open with check, the choose default program in the system menu, tried that in device manager default programs also. I've checked the programs and features Turn windows features on/off and it's not listed there (never thought it was but that was a suggestion), searched the MS Store, it's not listed there either.

    I don't like playing in the registry unless i have defined steps and haven't found anything for this yet, just the Win7 version like in my OP.
