  • If you've encountered the 'User Profile Service failed the logon' error in Windows 10, then there's a slightly different fix but it requires you to have access to another Windows 10 system. All you need to do is copy the 'C:\Users\Default' folder from a second, non-problematic PC over to your problem PC and pasting it in the same location. Rename the existing folder on your problem PC to something else, just in case you ever need to revert back for any reason. To access the 'Default' folder on your second PC you'll need to turn on hidden files by clicking 'View' in the folder toolbar and selecting 'Hidden items'.

    Besides, some user fixed the same problem by check disk.

    Regards

  • I have tried all above solutions, but the issue still persists. When I log in to a non administrative account on the computer, the screen remains blank and only cursor appears. I can only press CTRL+ALT+DELETE to access menu like task manager lock screen sign out etc but none of them work.

  • If you confirm that all mentioned methods fail, you need to reset or in-place upgrade system to check result. System components should be broken.
