    We just had a loss of AC Power. My 4 month old battery backup failed to do its job for more than 5 minutes, so I was in the process of shutting down the computer when it just shutdown.

    Power is back on, computer rebooted, but said something to the effect that my personal profile was lost. So it created a temporary one.

    Can someone give me an idea on this? I want my persoanl profile back!

    What Operating System?

    Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 key just after the system boots prior to the Windows sceen coming up.

    When you get into Safe Mode - select Last known good configuration.

    That might work.

    See if you can’t navigate through windows explorer and get those items back. C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\...

    You may not be able to log on under that username but you may be able to retrieve your stuff like your favorites, icons, etc.
