Compromising User Profiles

Recommended Posts

Dear all,


we have installed Malware on 12 computers in our office. After that we have had the same problem on 6 computers (4 with Win10 and 2 with Win8.1): Whenever we started the computer and loggin with our Windows Account, it was said "You've been signed in with a temporary profile. You can't access your files, and files created in this profile will be deleted when you sign out. To fix this, sign out and try signing in later. Please see the event log for more details or contact your system administrator."


on some Computer just a fresh restart was sufficient to get the Profile back. But not on all Computers... Somtimes we needed to Switch the user and then restart. On some Computers it worked not out at all and we needed to delete the user Profile.


I think that it has something to do with Malware, because This Problem only came up once we have installed the Programm.

Why are you deliberately installing malware ?


Dear all,

Ok, you thought you'd truncate the name of the application Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (aka; MBAM ) to "malware".  That is not a good idea.


Additionally, this is the retail MBAM support sub-forum and it is a violation of the retail version of MBAM to be installed on office computers.  That requires MBAM for Business and the sub-forum for support the business version of MBAM is Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Business


As for the message "You've been signed in with a temporary profile..." means that the user profile is corrupt and is unable to load the User's Registry Hive ( HKEY_CURRENT_USER ).  This happens most often without malware being involved.
