Default This property can not be set for anonymous users

I am getting this error once in a while : System.Configuration.Provider.ProviderException: This property cannot be set for anonymous users.

any help is appreciated

when user tries to log in, once user name and password is authenticated in database, I execute following code to set the profile

FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(userName, false);
System.Security.Principal.GenericIdentity identity = new System.Security.Principal.GenericIdentity(userName );
        System.Security.Principal.GenericPrincipal user = new System.Security.Principal.GenericPrincipal(identit y, null);
        Context.User = user;
        SqlDataReader dr = myDB.GetUserInformation(userName);
        if (dr.Read())
            Profile.FirstName = dr["FirstName"].ToString();
            Profile.LastName = dr["LastName"].ToString();
