What is User Profile
A user profile holds user settings and preferences like desktop backgrounds, sound settings, screen savers, logon screen, color schemes and several other such settings. It is stored in the user’s C:Users<user name> profile folder. And contains the account’s settings for desktop backgrounds, screen savers, pointer preferences, sound settings, and other features. Also the User profiles ensure that your personal preferences are used whenever you sign in to Windows.
When you log on to your Windows profile, all your profile’s information and settings are picked up from some registry entries and configuration files saved on your C:Users<user name> profile folder. Corruption of a single file can unable the windows from accessing it and it will log you on to a temporary profile with showing a message like,
You’ve been signed in with a temporary profile.
You can’t access your files, and files created in this profile will be deleted when you sign out. To fix this, sign out and try signing in later. Please see the event log for more details or contact your system administrator.”
