    trying to resolve the "temporary account" issue

    I'm having this exact same problem; I have been trying to resolve the "temporary account" issue referenced in this thread, but I've been unable to log in as another user to try and go through that process. I've enabled the Administrator account and also added another user account with administrator rights, but neither of these appear as available options while logging in.

    I've run the cmd script above and each of my user profiles are appearing there as enabled, but they still aren't showing in the login screen. I'm really hoping to avoid a refresh of Windows. Any other pointers that you can offer?

Can someone help me fix the "Temporary user" error please.
I don't know what to do, whenever I sign in it says that I'm on a temporary user and that everything I do when I turn the computer off will be deleted, I could use some help and I would prefer a solution that doesn't involve me deleting the account.

Hi! I just burned a copy of the Windows 8 Developer Preview onto a DVD. I have created a partition for the new OS (because I don't want to install over Windows 7). When Windows 7 is running and I pop in the DVD, the computer directly recognizes it as a runnable program. I'm also able to install...
