I can now create this issue on demand. But am unsure of what direction to go with the information.
BUT the issue of CORRUPT PROFILES is something that Windows NT, 2000, XP and 2003 administrators get to deal with from time to time.
The quick method to get the user's files back is to create a new account (profile) and log in. Then go to C:\Documents and Settings\[Previous User Profile] and copy all folders to: C:\Documents and Settings\[New User Profile]. Then reboot.
My kill a profile on demand isn't perfected yet, but by placing a corrupt AVI file that Windows can't handle in the user's Desktop directory has proven a good test to see if that new IT staffer can handle the job.
I set up 3 user accounts on my XP machine all with full privileges.
When logged in to Account A I experienced the "blue screen of death", for no obvious reason. I rebooted, however on logging into Account A after the reboot I was unable to do anything. I couldn't bring up windows Explorer, or IE, or even the control panel or the Start Menu, I had to reboot again.
Accounts B and C still worked fine.
Last night I was logged into Account B and again was
confronted with the death screen. After rebooting I was unable to use Account B, and had to resort to Account C.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
