The user profile cannot be updated in Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • A tale of two identical Dell machines with Vista Home Edition:

    One is configured using SteadyState 2.5 without issues (although it looks like, in Vista, you have to force the classic start menu to prevent "Games" and other options from appearing on the start menu).  

    The other will not allow me to update the "all" user profile.  I have tried deleting and recreating that user account, but still get the error that "The user profile cannot be updated."  The hive cleanup tool does not work with Vista.  I have tried using System Restore to restore the system to a point before SteadyState was installed, but that didn't help.  

    This is driving me nuts.  I guess I could always do a clean install of Vista, or clone the working machine, but I'd rather not.  Any suggestions?  

    Best regards,
