    User profile login failed and temporary profile created


    Hi. I'm having this problem where when I tried to log into my computer it gave me this thing that my user login has failed and a temporary profile had been created. I was looking at other form posts with this problem and going through the steps. But while I'm in safe mode at the moment I still can't get into my administrative account on my computer. It won't let me access it because the profile is corrupted(I'm assuming?)

    I was using: User Profile Service failed the sign-in - Fix in Windows 8 this thread to help me. But I'm stuck on step five because it just says: profile image path: c:\users\TEMP which is not my user profile but under the .bak it says my correct profile.
    I don't have another admin profile. I'm the only person who uses my computer.
    Ugh I don't know what the hell I'm doing I'm terrible at this kinda thing.
    Please help :'(

    Hello Emily, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Are you able to do what's in the blue note box under step 1 in Option One to enable the built-in Administrator account to use to repair your account from instead?

    Ugh I'm having trouble with making it become an admin thing. I opened command prompt in safe mode. I put user administrator/active:yes but it's not showing up like the picture. After I put that in all this stuff comes up under it: net user [username [password : *] [options]] [/DOMAIN]
    Username <password : *> /ADD [options] [/Domain]
    Username [/DELETE] [/DOMAIN]
    Username [/TIMES: <times : ALL)]
    Username [/ACTIVE: <YES : NO)]
