    Default Stuck in Windows 8 RP Temporary Profile

    Hi all,

    I will talk about the issue on Windows 8 RP. It stuck in Windows 8 RP Temporary Profile. It started when I noticed that Windows 8 RP was getting extremely laggy. It was so laggy out of frustration I just turned of the computer with the power button. After it booted back up I noticed that the background I had set which was red switched to Blue and now all the apps I had are gone. Everything was set to default. It said when going to the dektop that I was roaming and that changes I made would not matter. How do I get out of this. I can't Sync my setting because I have a temporary Profile. I dont Know What to DO!!! My brothers profile is fine but mine isn't. I can't even find Word now. It used to be pinned on my taskbar now it is gone and nowhere to be found!!

    Thanks.

    How did you install Win 8 RP. Please give the exact steps you used. This definitely sounds like an installation problem. The correct installation method is shown here.

    Sorry you are having this problem. It is somewhat unusual. I would say a reinstall is in order then. There seems to be a problem with your original installation. We are still pretty early into the Win 8 RP cycle.

    I would try a new download and burn to DVD. This will eliminate a corrupted download as the problem. Use a Internet Download Manager to eliminate downloading problems.

    It would almost sound like some kind of problem with two users on the same OS.

    I know that has worked OK on previous OS's, like XP and W7, but maybe W8 is not handling it correctly.
    That is the type of thing that should be reported to Microsoft, not here.
    After all, that's what Beta Testing is all about, , reporting problems with the new OS, back to MS so they can fix it.

    Just for the sake of "TESTING" I might try removing the errant user and creating a new user.

    Personally, I've never heard of a "Temporary User".


    Just a thought......
