User profile cannot be loaded


It's possible that your user profile is not corrupted, but that Windows is having trouble loading it (think a bad hard drive). You can boot into the Windows 7 Recovery Console from your Windows 7 DVD. Open the command prompt and start a chkdsk.
If your profile is actual corrupted, you can try a system restore. This will restore your profile back to an earlier date. Again, use the Windows 7 DVD to do this.
You may also be able to rename the user profile using the command prompt (eg
cd \Users
ren UserAccount UserAccount.old
And then try to log in, Windows might complain of a different problem but it should recreate a profile for you.
EDIT: Are you sure you are the only user? Unless you are the local administrator, there should also be an "Administrator" account.

I forgot to mention that System Restore, for some reason was turned off. So no previous restore points have been created. I will try chkdsk, then try renaming and let you know how i go. Thanks - Ryan Jan 6 '10 at 6:04
Just quickly, do you know how to get from drive x to drive c for rename in cmd? Its defaulting to the dvd drive dir.- Ryan Jan 6 '10 at 6:33
Sorry I worked that out, silly question. okay, chkdsk returned no errors. And renaming the folder produced the same result. Any other ideas? - Ryan Jan 6 '10 at 6:42
also, there is no administrator account that I am aware of. There is no administrator folder in /Users, and I cannot view a list of users in Control Panel > User Accounts because safe mode does not allow it. Can you think of anything else that could solve this issue? - Ryan Jan 6 '10 at 11:36
As a last ditch effort, I would try booting into the recovery mode from the DVD and try to create a new user using "net user <username> <password>" and then "net localgroup Administrators <username> /add". You may want to also try this from "Safe Mode With Console". Otherwise get yourself and external hard drive and xcopy/robocopy C:\Users\YourProfile to the external drive plus whatever other data you have. You may also use a Linux LiveCD to accomplish this. Otherwise... best of luck and I'm sorry that I wasn't able to help further. - ta.speot.is Jan 6 '10 at 12:59

Toshiba satellite c660-2el administrator cannot log on, user profile service failed to log on, user profile cannot be loaded


Your profile is probably corrupted. You will need to log in another account that has administrative permissions and rename the "administrator" profile to "administrator.old". After doing that, try logging in again to the administrator profile and copying all the data from the old profile to the new one that was created. If you still get the same error or if there are no other users that have administrative privileges, you will need to do a repair installation (Windows XP) to fix this. If you are using Windows Vista or higher, you will have to install over your existing installation to preserve your data, or do a clean install (format) and start new. This is actually a common problem, so don't blame yourself.

White screen for only one user, others fine


I had a similar issue with client's laptop and it seemed that there is a conflict with a camera and updates to a profile on windows 7. To resolve, login to an admin account and create a replacement profile then log off and login the the new profile, before deleting the damaged profile you can transfer the info to the new replacement on windows 7 is under C:/users. To create and delete the profile you need to go to control panel and users, make sure you delete the entire profile just it's not a virus on it.

When i try to log-on i put my pasword into the box and says "the user Profile Service service failed the log-on.User profile cannot be loaded. what do i do


To resolve this problem open yourself, follow these steps:

Right click Computer > Properties > Advanced system settings > Advanced tab > Under User Profiles, click Settings > In the User Profiles dialog box, select the profile that you want to delete > click Delete > Apply/OK.

Next open regedit and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

Right-click the SID that you want to remove, and then click Delete.

Log on to the computer and create a new profile.

Alternatively, you can simply download and use this Fix It 50446 from Microsoft given on KB947215.

You may also want to check out ReProfiler. It is a freeware tool for manipulating user profiles on Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, Server 2003 & Server 2008.

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.

Tungsten E and Outlook 2003 sync problem


yes I moved my files to a new machine and reinstalled palm (which of course also created the dreaded multiple copies of many palm contacts, when palm discovered older archives, but that is another story!) I wouldn't mind that if the palm pilot would just sync with outlook 2003. It synched with Outlook 2000 on my old machine.
