Profile problem

Posted: 01-30-2004, 09:41 PM
I've loaded a machine with 2000 and XP on separate
partitions on the hard drive. Machine is on a domain. I
am able to log into XP fine. My co-worker cannot login to
XP without getting a Windows Script Host error "Loading
your settings failed. Access is denied." If I delete her
user account and profile, re-add the account and have her
log on, she does not receive the error until she logs off
and tries to log back on. I've reset the security
settings to the default. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Mary,

Try these suggestions:

Right click My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Locate
the entries for your hard disks and double click each entry. On the
Policies tab, uncheck Enable write caching.

You will see a performance decrease because of this, but if the
corrupt registry/user profiles problems cease, then you'll be certain
of the cause.

Logon to another account with admin privilege and run System Restore.
Choose the most recent restore point and SR should restore the user
hives.

Or...

Boot into safe mode and log in as Administrator. Copy ntuser.dat from
%windir%\repair to "Documents and Settings\[your user id]". Now do a
system restore to a point in time prior to when the corruption message
began.

Or...

Relocate NTUserdat

Look in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList and find the profile you want to change
and then change ProfileImagePath to the ntuser.dat folder that you
want to use. You must manually copy or move the ntuser.dat file there.

If the problem remains intractable, then read these articles:

Good luck, hope this helps.
