    10.7 Update gone wrong!

    I've been having a interesting problem with my computer since I upgraded my Radeon HD 4870 driver to 10.7.

    After installing the new driver I was prompted to Restart, I did and that when my problems started. After the boot I sat at the loading screen with the green bar for about 15mins before I rebooted again, then I was at the "windows did not shut down properly screen", I chose to boot as normal and nothing. I only got it working in safe mode for a little while. Then after a few reboots, nothing, none of the options would load. So I pulled out my trusty Vista repair disc and went through the motions there. I was asked if I wanted to do a system restore, I did it, rebooted and nothing still. So I rebooted with the disc in and let it work its "magic". It concluded that the disc could not fix the problem.

    Thinking it was video card related, I pulled a card out of another comp I have. I put the new card in my comp and after about 10mins of loading, BAM! I'm in!, or so I thought. I logged on to a empty desktop and this message coming up in a bubble" Your user profile was not loaded correctly! You have been logged on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off. Please see the event log for details or contact your administrator." So I Shut down the computer and put the old card back in and I was back into a temporary account. I read a few tutorials by a helpful fellow named Brink, about deleting user accounts, but my account is the Admin account, and I think I read that I shouldn't delete a Admin account.

    Any help in this matter would be awesome! Thank you in advance for reading this wall of text.

    You can make another user account and give it administrator privileges.
    That is what you would be using now. It's not the built in admin. account.
