Summertime bugs - I

You come to the office in the morning, and lo: you log into you old-but-trusty XP SP3 computer. Just to be landed in an unfamiliar desktop with a message about a temporary profile. The real XP local profile seems damaged: XP has provided an empty TEMP folder instead. One might be tempted to recover data from the old profile using these guidelines:, but you might as well check the local user role. Mine was inexplicably bumped off from membership in the Administrator group into the Helpsomething group. Reset the role and voilĂ , the correct local profile is back.
