No users listed in "Profiles stored on this computer" under User Profiles
My PC with Vista Ultimate was working just fine when one day it won't load (freezes on Starting Window Vista screen). Fixed the problem by running chkdsk from a bootloader. But on the first time I logged in thereafter, Vista created a temporary profile (so I lost my user settings including wallpaper, application settings, etc). Luckily my profile folder is still intact in C:\Users\<Profile Name>.
On to the weird things:
1. Looking at the registry, there are profiles (e.g., S-1-5-21-1677952148-1243564268-1152631611-1045) in HKLM/Software/Microsoft/WinNT/CurrentVersion/ProfileList that says
"<Profile ID> cannot be opened.
An error is preventing this key from being opened.
Details: The system cannot find the file specified."
whenever I click on them.
2. When I open User Profiles by right-clicking Computer > Properties > Advance > User Profiles Settings, there's no user profile listed in the "Profiles stored in this computer" grid.
Thanks in advance.
