Cause of user profile not loading


The question is:

What causes a user profile not to be loaded in Windows domain based network?

the answer is:
there are probably 3 broad reasons for this,
1. the user corrupted their profile somehow, such as shutting down without logging off (hard power off)
2. the connection to the domain was lost ungracefully, and offline information was not copied entirely, causing a mismatch of some encrypted profile data, (effectingly corrupting again) and preventing the logon.
3. an unknown event took place between the last time the user sucessfully logged on, and this time where the profile is now not loading. this could be hardware related (faulty Hard disk), RAM parity errors( bad memory), a change to the user profile SID details on the domain controller or other domain change.

Usually the cause is not so much a problem, unless it consistantly reoccurs.

Fixing it however, in XP is fairly easy.
with an account with domain admin rights, just navigate to the UNC path "\\computername\c$\documents and settings" - note the name of the folder/user affected, and just .old their profile folder.
example, username is Philip. - you see in their c:\documents and settings\ folder the folder called Philip, rename it to philip.old or something else.

You have to ensure this is done while the user is logged off, as files in this folder will be in use otherwise. potentially useful to reboot the computer before navigating to the profile folder.

Windows cannot load the locally stored profile. Possible causes of this error include insufficient security rights or a corrupt local profile. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.


Try to create a new user account

1) Click on Start
2) Click on Control Panel
3) Click on Classic View on the left hand side.
4) Click on User Accounts
5) Click on Manager Other Accounts
6) Click on Create a New User Account
7) Type in the name of the new Account and select the user as administrator
8) Then click on Create Account.

The Account would be created successfully.

Log Off from your user account and login from the new user account that you have created.

To get all the settings from your old user account to the new account copy all the items from c:\users\old user account name to c:\users\new user account name.

User account


Hi !

You may first check the selected options under Control Panel > User Accounts > Change the way users log on or off (the first option has to be selected so that user accounts are all shown on startup).

You can try to switch to that account using the start menu > Log Off > Switch Users after you have logged in to the admin profile.

Setting your profile to administrator level on windows XP


hi rclang...

you will have to log in to windows as the computer administrator, or with an already existing profile that is set with admin permissions this will enable you to get into the user settings and change the permissions on your own profile. you do this in the control panel user settings.

there must be other users on your computer, as the primary account always has admin privileges, if you haven't modified them in any way. once you've changed your permissions, just log off the admin profile and into your own... you should now be able to install, uninstall, change settings etc.

let me know if you need more guidance on how to do this...

this is only effective if the user login to the network. if not, then the document will be on the local machine.

Windows 2003 Logon script


create a user folder on the server.
create each login folder "PC0001","pc0002", etc............
set the user rights by right click on the folder and select properties. (you need all users name. otherwise, one of more people will not have their file on the server.
now, you need all fo the users that will be using that particular PC login, in order to create the user profile. unless you have one generic login.
right click on "my document" on each of the local machine.
redirect the path under the general tab. to where you wan the files to go to.
that will place the file where you want them to be. like you say it is machine direct, not user direct. i you want user direct, in another words, you want the user files to go to the server regardless where the user is, then you need a Domain Controller and Active Directory setup.
