STEP ONE:

Logon to the Computer

NOTE : Go down the list here until you find a option that will work for you. 

1. Logon to another Administrator account. 
NOTE: If you do not have another Administrator account, then proceed to step 2.

A) Go to OPTION ONE or OPTION TWO.

2. Boot into Safe Mode. 
NOTE: You may not need to enable the built-in Administrator account. If this was the only normal administrator account you had, then Safe Mode should automatically boot into the built-in Administrator account. See: How to Start Vista in Safe Mode

A) If Safe Mode did not boot into the built-in Administrator account, then enable the Built-in Administrator account. If it did , then go to step 2C.
NOTE: See: How to Enable or Disable the Real Built-in Administrator Account in Vista

B) Logoff of Safe Mode, and then logon to the built-in Administrator account to logon with it in Safe Mode.

C) Go to OPTION ONE or OPTION TWO.


OPTION ONE:

Fix the User Account Profile

2. In the white line (Start Search) area, type regedit and press Enter.

3. If prompted, either click on Continue or enter the password for the Administrator account.

4. In regedit, go to: (See screenshot below step 5)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

5. In the left pane, look for the S-1-5..... folder (SID key) with the long number that has .bak at the end of the numbers. 
(See screenshots below steps 6A and 7B)
NOTE: 
A) In the right pane, look at the ProfileImagePath to verify that this is the user account profile that has the error.
B) You may have another S-1-5..... folder (SID key) above it with the exact same number without the .bak at the end of it.

6. For Two S-1-5..... folders (SID key) with the same Number -
NOTE: This is if you have two S-1-5..... folders (SID key) with the exact same numbers, but the second (below) one has the .bak at the end of the numbers.
A) In the left pane, right click on the first (top) S-1-5..... folder (SID key) that does not have .bak at the end of the numbers and click Rename. (See screenshot below)

D) Remove only .bak from the end of the numbers and press Enter. (See screenshot below)

F) Go to step 8.
7. For Only One S-1-5..... Folder (SID key) with .bak -
NOTE: This is if you only have one S-1-5..... folder (SID key) for your user account with .bak at the end of the numbers.
A) In the left pane, right click on the S-1-5..... folder (SID key) with .bak at the end of the numbers and click Rename. (See screenshot below)
B) Remove only .bak at the end of the numbers and press Enter. (See screenshot below and below step 10)
Repair_reg.jpg

8. In the right pane of the one without .bak now, right click on RefCount and click Modify. (See screenshot below step 10)

A) Type 0 (number) and click OK. (See screenshot below)
Modify_RefCount.jpg

A) Type 0 (number) and click OK. (See screenshot below)

11. Close regedit.
12. Restart the computer.
13. See if you can logon now.





OPTION TWO:

Delete the User Account Profle

NOTE You can do this option if you do not care about losing the user account and the contents in the user folders.

NOTE: It may have .bak at the end of it.
A) In the right pane, look at the ProfileImagePath to see if this is the same user account that you deleted in step 1 above.
B) Repeat step 6 until you find the one that you deleted in step 1 above.
NOTE: If the user account is not here, then it has already been removed when deleted in step 1. Go to step 9.
7. To Backup the Registry SID Key -
WARNING: You should backup this SID key to be safe in case you delete the wrong one in step 8 below.
A) Right click on the SID key, and click Export.
B) Type in a name and save the REG file to a safe location. 
NOTE: This is your backup. To Restore the Backup, right click on the REG backup file and click Merge.

C) Continue on to step 8.

10. Now, just create a new normal Administrator account.
NOTE: See: How to Create a New User Account in Vista

11. Restart the computer, and logon to your new account.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Asus k53u accepts password then comes up the user profile service service failed the logon user profile cannot be loaded How can I get round tis problem ?


Start in Safe Mode and then do a system restore back to a date when it was ok. If that fixes it, immediately create a new restore point and name it Profile OK. (Just in case you get it again) This fault has been occurring for months now and usually after an MS critical update! Good backup strategy is paramount.
