Hi
I have finally tracked the reason my user account settings keep reverting to the default set, I think. error 1505 seems to be that the user.dat file for each user is corupt so it also seems that renaming it and allowing windows to re create it might solve the problem,but. my puter has created 2 user profiles for me and my partner one called nigel and 1 called Nigel-computername. Each has a user.dat file. one of these has an entry
regf¹ ¹ ,á0

This is the top line of the file in nigel.


there is a load more gibberish under this,but, the key seems to be that the computer name is not 9D478DE7C. So do i need to edit this file to read the proper name here or re name it or delete it? and which ,if any of the 2 user account sets is the right one and can i delete the other one?
The other user account has no name at all.
