    When I used to do home repairs in the evenings i used to get endless clients have the same issue.

    They all used multiple accounts on a single XP machine and nearly always these profiles would become corrupt in some way after some time. It always used to happen on one of our pc's i just gave up using the feature in the end after getting annoyed at having to repair it every so many months.

    There didn't seem to be anything in common with these machines/set-ups apart from using the feature.
    (which is handy on a single home family pc)

    I wonder if any of you experienced this and if its just as bad on vista

    I forgot to say i used to backup, delete, create new and restore.

    i could have messed around with the registry, id's, Documents and Settings user folders to restore a single user to a system. But i found some programs didn't like the hack.
