Administrator User account, not able to logon with password!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    All of a sudden after uninstalling a heavy duty game, each time I try to logon to my user account I keep getting the error message 'THE USER PROFILE SERVICE SERVICE FAILED THE LOGON. USER PROFILE CANNOT BE LOADED'. I tried a system restore but i don't have any restore points beyond the day this happened. If i start up in safe mode i see an error message 'YOUR USER PROFILE WAS NOT LOADED CORRECTLY.YOU HAVE BEEN LOGGED ON WITH THE DEFAULT PROFILE FOR THE SYSTEM'. I can only logon with a guest acount. It seems I have always been using the default Administrator account because in safe mode it will not allow me to make any changes whatsoever. I have lost all documents and pictures but I know they on the system as I can see some of them in 'Recent Items'.  I also got another error message 'INITIALIZATION COULD NOT BE WRITTEN TO. MAKE SURE THAT THE DIRECTORY PATH EXISTS AND DISK SPACE IS AVAILABLE. any help is much appreciated, thank you. I have a Sony vaio

  • Hi,

    A temporary profile is issued each time that an error condition prevents the user's profile from loading. Temporary profiles are deleted at the end of each session, and changes made by the user to desktop settings and files are lost when the user logs off.

    A user profile consists of the following elements:

    1.A registry hive. The registry hive is the file NTuser.dat. The hive is loaded by the system at user logon, and it is mapped to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry key. The user's registry hive maintains the user's registry-based preferences and configuration.
    2.A set of profile folders stored in the file system. User-profile files are stored in the Profiles directory, on a folder per-user basis. The user-profile folder is a container for applications and other system components to populate with sub-folders, and per-user data such as documents and configuration files. Windows Explorer uses the user-profile folders extensively for such items as the user's Desktop, Start Menu and My Documents folder.

    We can perform the following method to resolve such issue:

    1. Restart your PC to release the locks on your profile.
    2. Log on with another administrative account
    3. Delete C:\Users\%username%
    4. Delete C:\Users\TEMP
    5. Delete the registry key matching your SID from
    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
    NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList". Check the value "ProfileImagePath" to make sure you pick your own profile.

    6. Restart once again.

    Good Luck.

  • Your other error you posted is ... 'YOUR USER PROFILE WAS NOT LOADED CORRECTLY.YOU HAVE BEEN LOGGED ON WITH THE DEFAULT PROFILE FOR THE SYSTEM'.

     

    Are you sure you have the error message copied correctly ?

    Are you sure it was not ..... Your user profile was not loaded correctly. You have been logged in using a temporary profile"
