This sounds like an operating system glitch. Enter safe mode at start up by pressing F8. Once in safe mode, log on as administrator and do a system restore to a point that you recall it allowing you to log onto your profile. This should cure it, if not, let me know and we'll try something else.

You have been logged on with a temporary profile. You cannot access your files and files created in this profile will be deleted when you log off. To fix this, log off and try logging on later. Please


Under assumptions your are trying to logon to a networked machine which requires that PC to contact a server to download your account.

now if this PC has been disconnected from the network but still has your temporary user profile stored on it, you can still log on but only as a temp user.

to solve this make sure your connected to the network either through wireless or wired.

USER PROFILE WILL NOT LOAD


This is way too vague a problem description to be able to even make a suggestion.

What kind of Laptop?
What operating system?
Any problems getting to the login screen?
Are you able to log in, but not load the profile; or not log in at all?
Is this after starting a machine that was off, after logging off and back on, or when trying to switch users?
Are you logging on with a local account or a domain/network account?
How many profiles are on the PC?
How much space is available on the HDD?
Does it load a temporary profile, or just error-out?

It seems like the user profile is not working.
You can try to start computer with safe mode with command prompt (by pressing F8 while starting the computer) and then activate administrator profile (by typing : net user administrator /active:yes) in command prompt and after that you can create a new user profile.

Let me know if it will not work.

Why does my laptop not respond to internet or firefox,it keeps sticking and is unresponsive. ive tried the power,battery,removed history and cookies,defraggkes and cleaner to no AVAIL PLEASE HELP


Hi Janice,

I see that you have tried everything that may help fix the issue you are experiencing.

The only recommendation I can give you right now is to create a different user profile in windows and see if the issue will still occur on the new windows profile created, and if this happens possible that there is something wrong with the windows installation on your Computer.

To Create a new Profile in Widows regardless of what version you have, Follow the steps below:

Assuming that your Existing Windows profile is already Administrator got to
-Start Click on Control Panel
-make sure that is is in Classic View where you see all the icons and details. once you have the list showing
-click on users
-in users click on create new user this will give you the option to create a user and ask you if you want to copy all the files that your original file has to the new profile and also make sure that you make the new profile set to administrator as well, which I believe is needed just incase it works you can remove the old profile that was having issues.
-once you have created the profile it may take awhile to finish if you have a lot of files that need to be copied to the new profile.
-once the new profile is created, close all windows that are open and click start then Log-off user to be able to log-in to the new profile that was created.
once you've logged-in to the new profile test it and see if the same problem will occur like on the old profile you had if you think the issue is not happening anymore and that you are satisfied that everything is OK, check all your files first if they are all copied to the new profile created before deleting the Old profile with problems.

I hope that this will help? I cannot find any other options that could be causing your issues in the old profile except for a corrupt windows profile.

Have a nice day Janice,

Rough. Alright, might have your back on this one. So, did you type in your log-in name and leave the password field blank and click "OK"? If that didn't work, there is another option. Instead of entering "Repair My Computer" choose "Safe Mode". Often times, there is a hidden administrator account on some systems that doesn't have a password. If you only see your profile listed when you get to the log in screen, then shut it down and restart. If you do see the administrator account log in and delete the user account. If you only saw your profile listed, log in to Windows in normal mode and check the Start>All Programs list for an Acer Recover Utility that might allow you to begin the process from within windows.

When I put in my password it tells me "The User Profile Service service failed the log on User profile cannot be loaded


switch the laptop on and then after the post messages appear and before windows starts press f8 repeatedly until the startup menu appears choose safe mode then log in as administrator. click start control panel > users > click manage user accounts then click create new user and create the account with administartor rights. Restart the laptop and log in to the new account you created then open computer up and right click on local disk c and click properties then click on tools click the button next to error checking saying check now. It will say windows cannot check a disk while it is in use and would you like to schedule a check on nxt restart or it will have a button saying schedule disk check, if its the latter click it. restart the pc and let it check the disk

after it has started windows try to log back in to your old account


if you cant log in to your old account you may be infected with a virus, scan your laptop.

Use a floppy disk or USB memory key to create a password reset disk using the following Microsoft instructions: How to Create a Password Reset Disk



The easiest way to recover from a lost password situation is to use a password reset diskextlink.gif. If you have a reset disk, follow these steps:
  1. At the Windows logon screen, click Reset password.


  2. Insert the recovery diskette or USB key.


  3. Follow the instructions on-screen to create a new password.


  4. Log onto the account using your new password.

Inability to load personal profile


Make sure Windows has been activated. If so, try to create another profile with Admin privileges. Is the computer infected with a virus. Some viruses, spyware or malware will deny access to your profile. Have a professional Computer tech try to scan for viruses.
