Over last weekend the Windows 10 May 2019 update (1903) was applied to my home desktop. Before 1903 was applied my profile was located at C:\Users\Rod. After 1903 was applied it is now located at C:\Users\Rod.000. I am a bit confused by that, but initially thought nothing of it.
However, I've been experiencing some problems with Outlook, with one account which I use POP3. I asked around and was told that my Windows profile has been assigned to a temporary profile. This really concerns me a LOT! If its temporary, how long will it remain temporary? Besides causing problems with POP3 and Dropbox on my machine, what else will it interfere with? Is there anything I should do to fix this temporary reassignment of my profile?
Make a safe copy of your profile from C:\Users Next go to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList and remove the entry for the profile. Reboot. Sign back in as a new user. Access the back up you made and copy everything over to the user folder just created. Reinstall applications as necessary, etc. It's a little bit of work, but this is the only way I could get rid of the 000 issue. S
