Recently I encountered a strange error while logging to a Windows 7 starter netbook.Every time I tried to login an error message pops up "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded".
This error may occur if the "Do not logon users with temporary profiles" Group Policy setting is configured.This issue may occur if the user profile was manually deleted by using the command prompt or by using Windows Explorer.So in my case this might have been caused as I cleaned up the system after a recent virus attack. The user profile switches to a temporary profile.
In order to fix such issue boot up your Windows machine in safe mode(press F8 during startup) and logon to a administrator account to fix your user profile.A look at the user profile shows what the problem is.
As you can see the actual profile is switched to backup profile.Fix it manually by performing these steps one by one.
- Run the Registry Editor.Type in regedit in the Run Dialog Box and hit enter.
- Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
- In the left pane, look for the folder name starting with S-1-5 (SID key) followed by a long number. then click each folder and locate ProfileImagePath from the right pane, double click to verify that this is the user account profile that has the error.
- If you have two folders starting with S-1-5 followed by same long numbers and one of them ended with .bak. Change the .bak folder to normal one.Right click the folder without .bak and choose Rename. Then add .xx at the end of the folder name. Right click the folder with .bak and choose Rename. Then remove .bak at the end of the folder name.Right click the folder with .xx and choose Rename. Then change the .xx to .bak at the end of the folder name.
If there’s only one folder starting with S-1-5 followed by a long numbers and ended with .bak. Right click the folder and choose Rename. Then remove .bak at the end of the folder name.
Choose the folder without .bak, in the right pane, double click State and type 0 and then click OK.
Close Registry Editor and restart your computer.
Everything fine now.Just check the Profile status.
