The User Profile Service service failed the logon. RRS feed

  • Question

  • @font-face { font-family: "Times"; }@font-face { font-family: "Cambria"; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0cm 0cm 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }p { margin: 0cm 0cm 0.0001pt; font-size: 10pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; }



    My operating system is Windows 7 professional I have only one user profile loaded on the system.

    My system does not allow me to log on to the PC a as the following error has appeared every time I try to log in: "The User profile Service service failed the logon."


    I tried entering my password and I even tried using my fingerprint to log on and the same error appears each time.

    I have also tried running the windows installation disk for a system repair and that doesn’t help either.

    As this machine is a couple of months old I have not made a disk image so I would appreciate any guidance.

    I looked through this forum and I cannot find a solution for this problem on a PC that has only a single profile.


    Since I cannot log onto the PC and access my files. I am stuck at the log on screen.

    Please can someone advice me on how to resolve this problem without losing my data and what caused this?


    Thank you.

  • Hi,

    please try this FixIt:

    Error message when you log on to a Windows Vista-based or Windows 7-based computer by using a temporary profile: "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded"
