    Brink.

    All of my user accounts (four people ion my family use this computer) are now experiencing this preparing windows "BS". I have just enabled the built-in Administrator account in safe mode, disabled safe mode and restarted. I selected the administrator account and it still cant sign in!!! I'm getting "preparing windows" for the built-in in admin account.

    Thanks Brink!

    Hello Dick,

    Sorry to hear you are having issues with this. You might see if doing a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before all this started may be able to undo and fix this for you.

    Now there are so many folders listed under C:\Users\
    ADMIN2
    Administrator
    Administrator.AGAsusLaptop
    Administrator.AGAsusLaptop.000
    *Four family accounts*
    Default.migrated
    Public
    TEMP

    They reappear after I delete them.

    In that case, check and make sure that the path for the ProfileImagePath value for the SID key of each account has the correct profile folder path.

    If they are not corrupted, correcting the path for each SID key should allow you to sign in to the correct profile for the accounts.

    A few restarts allowed me to get into an admin account, where I deleted the .bak SID keys. I was unable to copy the entire contents of the C:\User\folder though. I now have the new user account with the old one still in tact. I am trying to copy the files over manually, which is better than starting from scratch I guess.

    What a mess!

    Thanks for the quick replies.
