I cannot log onto my computer.

    Question

  • This is the second time since May of this year that this has happened. I cannot log onto my computer. I keep getting a message stating "

    The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded"

    Last time this happened someone gave me information on how to fix this and change the date on my computer before this started happening. I cannot find any of that dialog/conversation that I had with someone on this site.

    I don't know what happened to that information. Is there anyone that can instruct me on how to change this again it seemed to work for a few months.

    Also does anyone know why this would happen AGAIN???

    Not sure if the category & forum I chose was correct. I definatley have Vista.

  • Hi,

    Based on my research, you can visit the following Microsoft KB on User Profile Service (ProfSvc) issue.

    Error message when you log on to a Windows Vista-based computer by using a temporary profile: "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded"

    Hope it helps.

  • also, you might already have an backtrogan or network such as

    W32/Sality.aa new version will actually override your permission and profile,

    you can check regedit for changes, or event login or user profile leak.

    hope this helps

  • # This issue may occur if the user profile was manually deleted by using the command prompt or Windows Explorer by a user or by some program. A profile that is manually deleted does not remove the security identifier (SID) from the user profile list in the registry. Since the SID is still present, Vista will still try to load the profile by using the ProfileImagePath that points to a nonexistent path. Therefore, the profile cannot be loaded.
    # This can also be a issue with the user profile entering into a backup state.

    # You can try doing a System Restore at boot to see if it can fix this before using the instruction in the tutorial below.
    # If you do not want to repair the user profile, you can delete it and create a new user account in OPTION TWO. If this still does not work for you, then you will be left with doing a clean install for your Upgrade or Full version of Vista.
