Vista: UserProfile service corrupt - another approach


New Member
In my post "Vista: UserProfile service corrupt" I request help to resolve this problem but have had no suggestions beyond the proceses that I have already tried.
Q: The hex value that shows in the registry in ProfileList S-1-5-21 must have a corresponding value somewhere else in the registry to effect an action "open user profile".
if the actual hex value of the user profile in, for example NTUSERS.DAT is the value that ProfileList should find how can I find that value and can I then manually change the value in the ProfileList registry key?
Would this then allow the user service to open the computer?
