Somehow I think my default user profile has been tampered with. I have 2 user accounts, a main computer admin and a limited for our son. I want to create 2 more, one for myself (computer admin) and one for my daughter (limited) but the profiles don't load properly. When I create a limited profile it doesn't even create a folder in C:/Documents & Settings and won't load from the welcome screen. When I create another admin user account it profile loads but I can't make any changes. Changing the display doesn't work, there are not programs shown in the bottom right hand corner (ie. McAfee, NetNanny, Volume etc...) I don't know what to do to fix it so that I can create a new profile without any problems. Any ideas on what the problem(s) could be? Please help!!!

What version of Windows are you using?

I was told by someone that I should do a system restore but I would prefer to avoid that if at all possible......
