beomaster,

You will need to "clone" your profile. Here is a link to help you:

Thanks ed-meister (below)! I've repaired the link!

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

easy way ..... Use the profilemanager to create a new profile .... copy your user files from the old profile to the new profile ... and reinstall your extension and themes in your new profile.
