    This morning, I tried to log into my profile on my computer. However,
    was logged into a default account with a message telling me that m
    profile was not working properly. I tried Startup Repair but it didn'
    work. I tried to find the solution online as well but it did not help.

    I even deleted my other account and made a new one. It still didn'
    work. I think my files are still on my main disk but every time I tr
    to access them, they don't show. How come it still won't work? Hel
    please

    You could try a System Restore using a restore point dated before thi
    error. Use Method Two in the tutorial below to do this at boot if you d
    not have any access to a administrator account

    I had attempted a System Restore when I first found out that I could no
    log onto my account. The system restore said it restored properly bu
    there was no point dated before the error, therefore it did not fix.

    It may be to corrupted to repair. You might see if you will be able t
    create another user account that will work properly. If so, then you ca
    just delete the old one from within the new one. If not, then you ma
    need to do a clean reinstall

    It's formatting the hard drive and reinstalling Vista. ;

    I'm guessing there's no way to save my files from my hard disk? D

    Unless you can access the built-in Adminsitrator account using th
    tutorial below from the 2nd post to copy the files, then there will b
    no easy way to really copy them without having to go through the comman
    prompt at boot or take it to a shop to have them retrieved. :

    I am having the exact same problem. Did the link that Brink sent you to
    solve your problem? Or do you know of any other solutions to this problem?

    You can always go in, thru another Admin account, and rename your old
    profile by adding a 1 to end for example, and it will just create a
    new profile next time you log into that account. All you old settings,
    IE links, everything personal will be lost but it will work. By
    renaming you can then go back into that old account thru Windows
    Explorer and copy that old stuff over to the new profile. Just be
    carefull though, something in that old profile caused a problem, you
    could end up copying it into the new profile!!
