Windows Vista Phantom User

Windows Vista Phantom User

Recently, my friend's computer had a strange phenomenon. She has only one user for the whole system, named User. Recently, she saw different content on her desktop, and the different style of start menu (normally, she uses classic style, but she saw a Vista style).

"Seems like your friend was looged into a temporary profile which explains the path \Users\TEMP.

Something could have happened that corrupted her profile files/settings. Since she is now able to log back into her actual profile, I guess the system fixed the problem itself.

Search for 'Vista Temporary Profile"" and see if any of the search results described similar symptoms, e.g. displaying error messages."
