CAN'T LOGON ....SAYING .....THE USER PROFILE SERVICE service failed the logon .user profile cannot be loaded ...never had problem before ...normally type in password and it loads ..


this may be a corrupted file for taht particular user thats causing the problem why cant you try opening the other user profiles or if you cant access that too then try turning on your pc and when the list of user profiles appear press ctrl+alt+delete key in and order but you should keep allthree keys down like how you would keep the shift button down while typing an upper case....now when you press all three down a small dialogue box will appear requesting username and password in the username box type administrator and click login no password required after it logs in create a new profile from the control panel but don't use this user profile again because if this gets corrupted then you would have to format your computer.....formating it will delete all the data stored on your pc.....

The User Profile Service failed at login


Sounds like a vista problem. Have youtried to boot into safe mode? You can do that by oressing f8 during boot up and selecting safe mode from the menu.

If you can I would try to back up your docs, etc and maybe create a new user account.

There is also a boot repair in vista that I think comes up with the safe mode menu, so you might try that.

Hope this helps

New silhoutte: password problem


Hi omega51,

Yes. Logon with administrator rights and go into computer manage and expand the User folder on the left pane. After expanding the User folder, onto the right pane right click on your husband's user profile and change the password. After, sign out and have your husband sign in using the new password you just put in.

Note: please right down the password and keep it in a sage place for future reference.

Good luck.

Vista logon problem


ok i know a way with windows xp , it may work with vista , just after you turn the computer on press F8 it should come up with the option to start in safe mode , start the computer in safe mode , then if u get into vista , go to user accounts in control panel , and remove the passowrd or the user , at the start u press F8 before the logo screen starts , good luck, if that dosent work you will need to reinstal a operating system , if the laptop came with a restore disk use that , it will reinstall vista , and you can start fresh , just put ur system restore cd in , start laptop, boot from cd , and away u go ,
