I have an HP N5295 laptop running Windows 2000 Server. When I log on to the laptop, I receive the following message:

Windows cannot load the user's profile, but has looged you on with the default profile for the system.

Outside of this message, and the inability to get some Outlook forms loaded (message: The form you selected could not be displayed. An error occured registering the form in the OLE registry.), everything works fine.

How do I take care of these problems?

the Problem with your first question:your user name you typed in durning GUI setup contains a space or backspace or the last char at the end of the name,which causes setup to create an incomplete user profile located in the %systemdrive%\documents&setup\username folder

Solution to question 1: press ctrl alt delete and restart the computer

as far as your second question, i'm sorry i can't help you.
