    Its a regular log in but instead of it saying welcome it say preparing your desktop an thats when it logs in on a temporary log in user.

    Ps.Thanks for the spell check moderators [​IMG]

    what upgrade did you mean? from starter to pro or something, or from vista/xp?

    what folders are empty? also, right click the folders and select properties, check the folder size.

    is it saying a guest account?

    You may not like this, but a surefire way is to re-install Windows.

    Your user folder got corrupted so windows is making a temporary one.

    C:\Users\

    Go there, find your normal user folder, and back up your stuff out of it, then make a new user account and move your stuff back into it. Programs that were installed only into your account (and not all users) may need to be reinstalled.

    You can't perform system restores with the temporary account. Follow the instructions provided above. You need to edit the registry to restore the necessary profile.

    Also as a side note you might want to reconsider your 'illegal' upgrade and go legit.
