Profile Problems

Programs work as Admin but Not As User by gschoser
Posted: 3 Jan 02

I recently had this problem and I was able to discover that I had a bad profile.  I logged in as another person on my computer and I was able to use all of my programs.  However when I logged in as myself,I was not able to use any programs.  Also when I logged in as Admin everything worked fine.  So here is what I did.  I went in as Admin and deleted my old profile.  Then I logged out and logged back in as myself.  After doing this I logged back out and then logged back in as Administrator and copied the Administrative profile to my profile and logged back in as myself and now everything works good.
