Well I can only say that every user profile created on a Windows operating system has an Ntuser.dat file. It is a registry file which contains register settings for individual users account cause each users profile contains personal files and preference setting like browsing history, documents folder, custom settings for desktop properties which is specific to each other
Registry (file also known as Windows registry) is nothing but "central hierarchical database" that contains information about the software, hardware and user profiles contained on a computer defined by Microsoft. Windows refers the registry files throughout its operations and NTUSER.DAT supports the configuration of "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" which is the branch of same registry file now we are talking about.
A default profile is nothing but a profile template that contains various settings such as desktop colors, backgrounds, icon placement, and Windows Explorer settings. You have observed many times that whenever you log on to the new system for the first time. You waited for little bit long time and meanwhile your windows were creating your new profile resulting on the screen with a texts messages saying that “Welcome, Preparing your desktop, customizing your settings etc.” and then you find your desktop screen.
Coming back to the temporary file. So either one of the processes like loading your existing profile or creating a new one from default profile fails Windows cannot log on the user unless it creates an “Ersatz” which lasts for f duration of your session. Such type of profile is knows as Temporary profile which is like your local profile but it gets deleted whenever you logoff the windows.
