  • Hello,

    please start with:

    Keep in mind that Windows Vista and Windows server 2008 use the same code so the solution should work also on the server.

  • Hi,


    This issue may occur if the user profile was corrupted or deleted manually or by other means. A profile that is manually deleted does not remove the Security Identifier (SID) from the profile list in the registry.


    We may try to modify the registry to troubleshoot this issue. For the detailed steps, please refer to the following Microsoft KB article:


    Error message: "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded”, when logging on to Windows 7 or Windows Vista
