Restore User Registry

Today I did a bad mistake on a user machine. After loading the user’s HKCU in regedit to check for some settings, I accidentally deleted it. After that, the user cannot login to the machine because her profile was corrupted. I tried to run the system restore but that did not help at all. Ah…

I finally found out a way to fix this problem. The idea is to delete the user’s profile and re-create it.


After deleted the profile, I rebooted the machine then asked the user to login. She was able to log back in without any problem. The only thing she lost was her recent opened applications under the start menu.
