Default User Account Login Problem In W7

I have 2 user accounts setup in W7/Pro/32. When I log off one and try to login to the other, I get a temporary user login start up. I use my LUA most of the time, but some appls require that I be logged into my Admin Account. The problem did not occur for several months on W7... it is new. I sought help on the MS forum and noticed that several users were experiencing the same problem. Here is a link ...
http://social.answers.microsoft.com/...f-b2e6a0a05479

I tried the XP tool for user account clean up in compat mode (that did not work). I am hesitant to make registry changes as I really do think they are too risky and if the problem is MS based, it will only come back (guess on my part). I ran a disk scan for errors (ran clean).

Lots of users complained about this in XP, though I have never had the problem there. I have not seen it on my Vista system either.

A god number of the MVP moderators on MS think it is related to what AV is installed, but I have noticed that the users with this problem have many different AVs installed. I have MSE (if this is an MSE problem with User Accounts then should MS not come up with a fix!).

It is not an 'end of the world' problem ... but it sure is annoying. Anybody else here experiencing this problem?

Can you post a screenshot? I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about.
Does some startup applications trigger the UAC and asks for your admin account + password?

It only happens when I logoff the account that I am currently using and try to logon to my other account. I select the account I want to log onto and instead of getting the password screen, W7 proceeds with a 'temporary profile' startup. It is the same problem that the users describe in the link I provided. I have to reboot to get access to my second account.

If profile deletion (corrupt profile) is an option then google seems to be unanimous with this solution:
Delete the profile from control panel.
Delete your profile key from : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList (this appears to be quite safe to delete).
Again if you want, test it in a VM first.
------------------------------
Not a fix, but still your issue should get resolved.

Tnx for sending this to me. I appreciate your help. Before I go ahead and give this a try, I need to understand just what gets deleted if I implement the suggestion. Will I have 2 profiles still operational (do not want it deleting my Admin profile ... I'm sure you can understand my concern).

NB: I looked in the event logs and seen a few warnings concerning user profiles. Here is one...

Deleting the profile and reg key should delete everything in your profile - say anything in my document, desktop...files at your root directory should be ok.

Event logs are beyond my level of understanding..., calling some real techie's for help
