1. Log in to the computer with temp profile.
  2. Start the registry editor by typing regedit in find box of Windows 7/8.1 or Windows 10.
  3. Navigate the following location.  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
  4. You will see similar keys under the profile list, but one with .bak, which indicates the troubled account.
  5. The key with .bak is your correct old user profile. Currently, your Windows 7/8.1 computer logged in with fresh (temporary) profile with the same key. So, rename the new profile key (which is not having.bak) and remove .bak from correct profile key.
  6. That’s it. Log off and login (or restart) with your user name and password. You must get your correct profile with icons and profile settings back in Windows 7 or Windows 10
