Your password may be wrong. To rectify it, login as administrator and from the Control Panel->User Accounts delete your account and after a reboot, create it again if you have to have some accounts.

SOURCE: I can't logon. It says User Profile Service

Use the Function key or Delete key to stop the machine from booting all the way, in other words, interrupt the normal process. You can try to use the "restore to the last successful boot" selection. If that doesn't work, you can re-install Windows.
What is happening is that windows wants to run the program to let you input the user/password selection and cannot start it. Maybe it cannot find it or the 'file got corrupted' standard Microsoft answer.
Personally, if find that a horrible excuse. Computers are not supposed to corrupt files willy-nilly.
Anyway, you likely have a hard drive dying slowly, and should back up any files you need from the machine ASAP, and then re-install windows.

I wouldnt worry about it its only used on a corporate network for group policy downloads to your laptop.

If you are on a corporate network check the service dependencies in the services applet in control panel. It may be another service that has been disabled or failed that is preventing GPO client service from failing.

Try normal startup from msconfig of course Task Manager will give you some indication as to what running task/process is using much or most of the computers resource. Why did you do a Sys Restore? Anyway here is some info that might be useful to your problem... cheers.

Double click Wireless zero configuration on XP and WLAN on Vista. click dependencies and see the services where it is dependent on.

Inside the services window, click the name where your wireless is dependent upon and click start. Check for other dependencies and start reconnecting to your wireless network.

Failed to connect services

For the Service in Vista:
Boot into Safe Mode.
Control Panel> Administrative Tools> Services> right click on System Event Notification Service> set startup mode to Automatic. Do NOT attempt to start the Service.
Make sure the Event Log Service is also on Automatic.
Reboot into Normal Mode. The Service should be started.

For the Event Viewer in Vista:
Please observe the same guidelines for reporting: ignore Warnings, only one copy of recurring identical error.

WMI Has encountered a problem and needs to close

When you attempt to start the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service, you may receive the following error message, and the service does not start:
Could not start the windows management instrumentation service on local computer.
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start

First, verify the number of dependencies attached to the WMI service. This can be viewed by running the following command from Start, Run:

The output should exactly as given below.
[SC] GetServiceConfig SUCCESS
BINARY_PATH_NAME : C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs
TAG : 0
DISPLAY_NAME : Windows Management Instrumentation
*See attachment*

The only dependency is the RPCSS service, and it does run by default whenever you start Windows. If you have any other dependencies listed, then it may be the causing the problem. To remove the additional Dependencies, follow this:

WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Before you modify the registry, backup the registry key by exporting the corresponding branch. Also, see here to learn how to perform a complete registry backup.

Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
Navigate to the following location
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\winmgmt
Double-click DependOnService, and set it's Value data to RPCSS

Close Regedit and restart Windows

If this fails, you will need to do a repair installation..

Hope this will be helpfull

Thanks & Regards

"error starting the service Backup Exec & media service"

This is most likely caused by a change in the user acount password that you created the profile with. Under network select Logon account Managment. in here you will see the accounts that you used to login to the Domain. (AD) Consider setting up separate accounts (backup, etc) for these services & scheduled jobs, rather than using the admin or personal accounts. This way you can still change the admin account password on a regular basis & maintain security, but not have to go the hassle of updating all of these at each change. You may also opt to set these specific accounts so that the passwords do not expire automatically so that you do not have to deal with that scenario.
