'user environment' notice on boot up?

When I switch on my computer and it boots up I get a 'user environment' notice on the screen which says "Windows cannot load the users profile but has logged you on with the default profile for the system", " Detail-the system has attempted to load or restore a file in the registry, but the specified file is not a registry file format.
It has been like this since reformatting to start afresh after having caught a virus before having any anti-virus software.

I have loaded everything onto this default profile and everything works fine, but after three months its beginning to annoy me and I wonder whether I can do anything to sort it out?

I would be most grateful if anyone can help?

Sorry cannot get that link to work. If you type into Google Windows cannot load the users profile but has logged you on with the default profile for the system the top link says 246936 Error message that will show you your problem.
