Horse is now dead..... Tried various ways to get rid of the "preparing my desktop" logon issue. Looks like my profile is corrupted.

Tried restoring to earlier times, no joy :(

Going the paunfull and looonngggg process of re-installing windows 7 etc.

Suggestion: have a brand new profile ready to go in case your old one crashes. Windows profiles end up doing this and I had to go through something like 3-4 profiles on my other (faster) system during its tenure.

I create a new user account, open it up once, put some crucial things on it then keep it for later use.

When my current one goes kaput I can easily switch over to the other one.

I also use a login with username and password for my profiles. Some dont like to do that on a home system but that lets me know that the profile has not been accessed while I am away for the day. I guess someone could hack the password but so far no one has.
