    User Profile


    On occasion when I try to logon to my laptop it will prompt me for my password than will create new profile as first time user, than when I logoff and start again it will log me correctly, any idea welcome.

    Windows 8.1


    See if Brink's suggestion in this thread can help you:

    Windows 8 keeps signing me into a temporary profile.

    If none of the above fixes your issue, then I would recommend this next:

    DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8

    Good luck,
