In order to delete your profile, you must be logged in with an account which has administrative privileges which is also not yours. Once you are logged in, open the user profiles list. To locate the list of local user profiles, right-click My Computer, click Properties, and then on the Advanced tab, click Settings under User Profile. Select your profile from the list, and then click Delete.
Logoff, and then log back on as yourself. A new profile will be created when you log on.
If the corrupted profile is that of a domain administrator, and it is located on the first domain controller in the forest, the EFS recovery key must first be backed up. See KB Article 324897 for details on this procedure.
