Log on with another administrator user profile or if you don’t have any other and you are the only user do the following:
1. Turn off computer
2. Turn on computer and press F8 while you see the DELL logo
3. On the Windows Advanced Options select Safe Mode
4. Open the Start Menu and type Regedit on the Start Search field
NOTE: If unable to boot to OS even in safe mode then boot to WinRE, go to command prompt - type regedit.exe to perform below steps:
5. Go to the following entry:
a. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Profile List
6. There you will find the following information:Logon problem - ?ui=1&attid=0.3&disp=emb&view=att&th=1199b59e24dfc199
7. On the “.BAK” file you will find an entry with ProfileImagePath with the name of the user.
8. Delete the repeated entry that does not contain “.BAK”
9. Right click on the other entry and select Rename. Delete the extension .BAK for the original entry.
10. Exit Regedit
11. Restart computer.

User Profile Service failed the logon error message


The User Profile Service failed the logon.
User profile cannot be loaded is a message you sometimes get in Vista or Windows 7. Many suggest editing the registry but for novice users that can be dangerous. Here is an alternative solution.
Logon in safe mode.
  • Restart your computer and log into safe mode: As your computer is rebooting, press F8 Repeatedly after your POST screen. If you get the OS screen, you need to start over.
  • Choose safe mode with networking
  • Open internet explorer and copy and paste this site into the address bar:
http://www.thewindowsclub.com/fix-the-user-profile-service-failed-the-logon-user-profile-cannot-be-loaded
  • Click on Microsoft Fixit which is down the page

If this resolves your issue, 4 thumbs would be appreciated.

My laptop keeps displaying the user profile. Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.


Restart your computer press F8 right after the First Boot screen and Select Safe Mode Windows. Delete that User or make a New User Profile. That must fix your problem if your Safe mode is not secured by password, or if it is then consider reinstalling Windows.

Thank for asking Sir !

When i turn my computer on it will not allow me to login in. Once I enter my password it tell me that ''the user profile service service failed the logon, user profile cannot be loaded".


reinstall windows.  it may be a virus disabled and destroyed the profile service, so even if you were to boot into safe mode and attempt to access windows services and turn it on and start it automatically, when you rebooted to normal operation, it would still tell you it wasn't working or that it was corrupt.  you can try a repair install and that could possibly get things back to normal, but not remove the virus.  for that, you will need to connect the hard drive to another uninfected computer and run a full scan.
