    Can't switch user accounts


    I'm having a bit of problem with my home computer. As of a few days ago i have been getting the "there was an error loading your profile, you have been assigned a temporary profile" error and was just going to make a new user account and transfer files to that one. However when i try to switch to the user account my computer goes almost into a short sleep mode; instead of switching over the screen flickers and, upon coming back on, reloads the same temp profile. I have some experience with computers but have never come accross this before. Any ideas?
