Cant logon. Message says "the user profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded"

The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.original title: The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded. This one gave me a lot of serch results, but I didn't found exactly like mines. This is other one when you CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT and just then get this error.
So the problem occured just when I created ne standart user and created a password for my administratos...
The thing is that I know the problem and read a lot about it, but this is other thing. I get this error only for new standart user.
Firstly looked at registry and found that there are only Administrator log
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\S-1-5-21-2627113277-2473919770-2634252841-1000
and without .bat so everything is ok. But I thought that there should be another one from standart account that I created. And there are no new folder in users folder. So the problem is that I created the account but no reg files was created and no new folders created... Where is the problem and how to fix this? Oh and the same problem is with the Guest account, but guest folder exist, but registry not exists..

How do i change my password when im on as a guest

Which operating system are you on ?

Windows allows you to create a guest account that is limited in terms of its ability to change settings and download content and software. At times, you may want to reset this account's password, which is easily accomplished.

Log into the system as the administrator. Click the "Start" button and then "Control Panel." Choose "Administrative Tools" and choose "Computer Management." Click "Local Users and Groups" in the left column and then "Users." Right-click "Guest" in the main menu and choose "Properties." Enter the old and new passwords. Confirm the password. Click "Next" and "Finish."

How to get computer off a tempory profile

which operating system ?

Every time that you log on to a Windows Vista-based computer that is connected to a domain, a temporary user profile is created.

When you log off the computer, the user profile is deleted.

This behavior usually occurs because the account that you use to log on to the computer is a member of one or more of the following groups:
•Domain Guests

If this is a school/work computer then this is most likely the way the NetAdmin has set it up.

If this is your home computer then a temporary user profile is issued each time an error condition prevents the user's profile from loading.

You may encounter profile issues if you log on with a user in the Guests group.

You need to remove the user in question from the local Guests or "Domain guests" group and that should do it.

1. Click Start

2. Right click Computer and Select Manage

3. Select Local Users and Groups > Groups

4. Double click Guests

5. Check if the user that is having the issue is a member of the Guests group

6. If so, remove the user from the Guests group

7. Log off the workstation and log back on

8. Verify the profile is now local


Try following these steps and check if it helps:

Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly.

Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully.

For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it.

Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

a. Log on to the system by using an administrative user account other than the user account that is experiencing the problem.

b. Back up all data in the current users profile folder if the profile folder still exists, and then delete the profile folder. By default, the profile resides in the following location:


c. ClickStart, typeregedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

Collapse this imageExpand this imageIf you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

d. Locate the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

e. Under the ProfileList subkey, delete the subkey that is named SID.bak.

Note SID is a placeholder for the security identifier (SID) of the user account that is experiencing the problem.

The SID.bak subkey should contain a ProfileImagePath registry entry that points to the original profile folder of the user account that is experiencing the problem.

f. Exit Registry Editor.

g. Log off the system.

h. Log on to the system again.

After you log on to the system, the profile folder is re-created

1. Use SFC / SCANNOW command to help you detect and fix any corrupted or missing system files.

1) Go to Start menu, expand "All Programs" - "Accessories" - "System Tools", right-click "Command Prompt" in the pop-up menu, select "Run as administrator", then input "SFC / SCANNOW" without quotation marks and press Enter.

2) When the "SFC / SCANNOW" command is running, this command will scan every corner of your system, and repair the missing or corrupted files.

2. Shift to another administrator user, if you don't have one, please create a new administrator account and log in.

3. Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings folder, backup the data of your original corrupted profile, then delete the corrupted profile and all the temp profiles.

4. Open Registry Editor (type "Regedit" without quotation mark in the start menu blank and open it), search for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList, under the profileList subkey, delete the key named SID.bak.

5. Restart your computer; you will be able to log in the normal profile again.

hope this helps

My laptop(running Vista) allows me to see a folder on my Seagate external drive but will not allow me to see the folder contents.

Is that the System Volume Information folder? If it is, you can't see the content of this folder as it's a system folder and it's related to the restore points your PC is creating for that hard drive.
Else, it may be that whoever created the folder has locked it so you cant open it without a password.

I need to know how to get the guess acount password for an acer aspire 5050

Reset password > Possible.
'Get password' > Not possible. Native OS design does not provide this function

Quick fix: If you can login as 'guest', do so. Once done, press CTRL +
ALT + DEL and then click 'change password'. Follow subsequent steps. This becomes the account password.

Assuming you cannot login in with 'guest', do so with an account that has administrative rights.

Before proceeding, remember a key principle. To keep protected information secure, after a password is reset on a local user account, Certain information is no longer accessible, including the following:
  • E-mail that is encrypted with the user's public key
  • Internet passwords that are saved on the computer
  • Files that the user has encrypted
Now that we got that out of the way, Right mouse click 'computer'
Select 'manage' | 'Local Users and Groups' | (all in tree on the left)

Select Users folder
Shift focus to the detail pane on right. You should see 'guest'
If the guest account has an icon [arrow pointing down], it is disabled. This is a default setting in most systems. Not a good idea to activate it coz it leaves a door open for hackers.

Right click 'guest' and select 'properties'. On the general tab, you should see a check box next to the line [Account is disabled]

Enable/Disable per your pleasure. Click 'ok' back to main screen.

Right click 'guest' again. This time, select the first menu item - 'Set Password'.
Populate with your desired password. Remember it lest you are doomed to go through the whole process again.

Get me the master password for my acer laptop

lol, if you bought the Laptop second hand, you might want to contact the person you bought it from just to make sure there aren't any passwords you are unaware of. Otherwise, check and make sure you're not using a user account with Limited privileges [i.e. guest or a renamed guest account]

Good morning,i forgot the password on my asus 4g,help!

Hi, Just Press Alt, Ctrl and Delete at the same Time and Type 'Administrator' into your Account or user name and the password by default is nothing so don't type anything here and press enter and this sould give you access to your computer. Go Into control panel>User Accounts, and create a new account because you need your old password to change it. If this doesn't work Type Guest as the user name and the password will either be guest or it doesn't have a password. from here you cannot change or modify accounts, but at least you can use your computer until you get it fixed. and if this doesn't work take it into a computer technitian to look at it.

Hope This Helps
