User Profile Bad if this user is not first user logged onto Vista
This is very strange...

My Vista profile is fine, but if my son logs onto his profile, then we
switch users to my profile, my profile is not readable, Vista accepts my
password, but displays a generic profile for me. That means my email is not
configured, and my desktop with my icons are not displayed.
This was a fresh install of Vista, and all the user accounts were migrated
from another XP Pro machine, which continues to run fine.
Running Vista Ultimate no domain membership.
AMD X2 6000 processor 2GB RAM, Nvidia 7900 video, 500gb sata drive....


Has anyone every heard of this strange behavior?

Thanks
-Tom

RE: User Profile Bad if this user is not first user logged onto Vista
Hello Tom,

I have also experiences similar behavior on my Toshiba machine. I would
simply turn on "guest" or add a "standard account". When my wife logs on her
standard account it displays a generic profile as you put it with all
documents gone. When I turn off the guest/standard all my files magically
appear. I have been searching KB articles with no luck. I have yet to figure
out what this exactly means.
