How to fix temporary profile in Windows

In Windows 7 and Windows 10, it happens that suddenly you logon with a temporary profile.
It happens when Windows encounters problems in the user profile.
Often the system will correct itself the problem and simply restart the computer to access normally; it can happen that the system doesn't retrieve the orginal profile.
In this case we can work manually in the Registry Editor.

Run Registry Editor by typing regedit.exe in Start menu.

Browse the structure:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
Inside this, we see two identical entries, one ending in .bak

Rename the item without the .bak, adding at the end _new
Rename the entry with the .bak, eliminating the final.

Then restart the computer to access with the original profile.
If you restart and the problems persist, perhaps the profile is really corrupt and must be recreated again.
