    Two users
    Turn on computer
    user #1 starts normal
    Switch to user #2 50% of times logs on as temporary profile
    Must shutdown and log on again.

    I've posted this before and have never gotten any help

    Which version of Win 7 are you using?

    Have you logged the other user on normally without using Fast User Switching?

    What have you already tried?

    There is quite a bit of info on this Microsoft site.

    Thank you so much for replying

    I have Win 7 home premium. Upgraded from Vista
    Dell inspirion 1525 laptop

    No. I go to start, switch user. I guess that's fast switch?
    I've gone to msconfig and unchecked all startup items except wireless mouse, antivirus, microsoft & google tool bar.
    I've entered perfmon/report. No problems reported

    What I was getting at is a new user is not really set up in the system until you log off. I was asking you to, if you had not already, log off yourself and log on as the other user. Maybe it will help set up the fast user switching.

    I understand.
    Sequence:
    turn on
    log on#1 user
    log off #1 user
    log on #2 user
    switch
    log on #1 user

    This might take a few days

    thanks
