User profile login failed and temporary profile created

Q: User profile login failed and temporary profile created

Hi. I'm having this problem where when I tried to log into my computer it gave me this thing that my user login has failed and a temporary profile had been created. I was looking at other form posts with this problem and going through the steps. But while I'm in safe mode at the moment I still can't get into my administrative account on my computer. It won't let me access it because the profile is corrupted(I'm assuming?)

I was using: User Profile Service failed the sign-in - Fix in Windows 8 this thread to help me. But I'm stuck on step five because it just says: profile image path: c:\users\TEMP which is not my user profile but under the .bak it says my correct profile.
I don't have another admin profile. I'm the only person who uses my computer.
Ugh I don't know what the hell I'm doing I'm terrible at this kinda thing.
Please help :'(

Preferred Solution: User profile login failed and temporary profile created

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

First, if this isn't the correct forum, I apologize. 
We image our machines with SCCM 2012r2 in our environment. From time to time on our Windows 7 machines, we've come across the issues that after imaging, if a user tries to log in that has no admin permissions,
for the first time, the user profile service fails to load, thus not allowing them to log in. 
The fix for that that we use is to delete the iesqmdata_setup0.sqm in the Default User profile.
However, on our Windows 8 machines, this file doesn't appear anywhere. Since this is the first login of the user, there is no user profile for that user anywhere, no reg key to delete, etc. 
What i've had to do in this case, is to go to the default user profile and edit the security permissions. It is already set to "Include inheritable permissions from this objects parent."
What i had to check off was, "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object." 
Without this box ticked, no users without admin permissions on their account could login and would always get the User Profile Service failed to start. Once this was ticked, those users could log in.

Now, this doesn't happen on all of our windows 8 machines. Matter of fact, i believe it's only happened on a dozen or so out of about 400.
The image we use is a standard 8.1 Windows install with a few custom programs and driver packages for the machines. Same custom programs are included in our... Read more

I followed the tutorial here User Profile - Change Default Location and it worked beautifully... All my user docs are on the D drive and the Start button entires all point to the new location.

HOWEVER when I tried to log in this mornias wand was faced with my normal log in prompt for a password to my profile, it accepted it, and then told me "The user profile service failed to login. User profile cannot be loaded.

It's the only account, so I cannot get in via another account.

I assume it's looking for something on the D drive instead of the C drive (or vice versa) ... But I carefully followed the tutorial. I assume one registry setting is off. ProfileImagePath???

I can only now get in via F8 options. I tried safe mode, but there is no regedit in safe mode And it won't let me create a new account .

I can rebuild yet again (win 7 has not been kind to me) but not sure if my last image was before or after the user profile change

Are there other boot f8 boot options to get me out of the jam??

A:HELP! User profile service failed the login - profile cannot be loaded

Via the help panel I can now get into regedit.... But now what?

I looked at steps 10 to 14 on the tutorial and I have the correct registry setting, ie ProfileImagePath pointing to D:\users\media

So is there another registry item to change?

The ProfilesDirectory key says %systemdrive%\users. Should it be changed to d:\users??

The tutorial went on to say I could delete my c:/users/media folder....which I have not done yet, so I don't thinks it's that.

As of today, in our domain environment consisting of Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 Enterprise machines, we are experiencing the "User Profile service failed the sign-in - User profile cannot be loaded" error message whenever a user tries to login.
This only affects users new to the particular machine. If they have signed on before and already have a cached account the computer logs them in with no issue. This is occurring on both Win8.1 and Win7 machines. We are an academic institution so this is becoming
a huge problem in our labs. Students generally use different computers so this is popping up very frequently. I have a solution for the issue. It appears that on the non-working machines that the "Default" user profile is corrupt. I have discovered
that if I find a machine, Win8.1 or Win7, doesn't matter, that is allowing first time users to logon I can copy the "Default" user profile and replace the corrupt one. I must first permanently delete the corrupt profile before copying over the new
one. I am doing this over the network by navigating the C:\users\ folder. Even this way is becoming cumbersome though as we have over 1000 computer in labs. I have googled and googled and I keep seeing the same answers offering various solutions, none which
are any more practical than my method. I cannot find information on a cause or a reason of why this would just crop up out of nowhere. I suspect maybe a Windows update but I cannot verify that yet. ... Read more

3. name of ProfileImagePath is as follow ...........

We have users on Windows 7 Enterprise machines.  No one has a roaming profile. Users cannot install programs.  The users move around so they don't use the same machine all the time and there may be 20 profiles on one machine.  They don't
always logout but the machines are restarted once a week at least.   Occasionally we may delete profiles on the machines but this is a remote site so we seldom do.  Users primarily use remote apps. served up either by Citrix or web interface. 
Little is done locally other than printing.  All machines are imaged with the same software. All users do the same thing.  One user in an office of six machines, can only login to three of the machines with a temporary profile.  She has no

none for this user.  No .bak profiles for her, nothing.  I found a post that suggested increasing registry size/reboot but still no clue.  This has been going on for months and she just let me know but I don't know if she called the help desk

Thanks.  She's working on the computer and does not logoff and back on quickly.  I just rechecked and there absolutely is not a .bak with her name.  On either computer.  I did find one for Temp and one for another user so now I have a
second user getting the profile issue.  I renamed that one and when the other user logged in, he got his profile. 

Guess I will just re-image the computers although I'd like to figure it out but I don't have the spare time to waste and don't want my user to keep getting the temp profile.  My company won't pay for the support and frankly, in all the years I've
been in IT, I've never had MS resolve one issue for me.  Not worth paying for.  Oh well, thanks for your suggestions.  If I have time to devote to this and figure anything else out, I will post the answer.

Hey guys,

Yesterday, I shut down my computer. A few hours later when trying to log back in, I get logged onto a blank profile, which I assume is a temporary profile.

Curiously the ProfileImagePath string under key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\S-1-5-21-842173820-3506557639-1618326103-1004 is pointing to C:\Users\Mike_2.Mike-PC instead of C:\Users\Mike_2, which I assume is a temporary/alternate profile. (which I didn't create)

This has happened before, but usually a few restarts fixed the problem, however, that doesn't seem to be working now.

My question is, is there a way to reassociate the profile with the correct user folder? Or do I have to transfer everything over to a clean profile?
 

A:Solved: User profile dissasociated from account/logging onto temporary profile?

Its not an association issue, the user profile is corrupt, and is replaced by a temporary one.

Best thing to do is create a new user account, and migrate to that.

Hey all!

I've been experiencing stability problems on/off with my rig, but now they seem to have been stabilising (hurr durr).

I've recently bought a 1TB harddisk and 4 additional GB of Corsairs XMS3 DHX RAM, bringing me up to a total of 8GB.

Now, I tried to install 6 GB first, in tri-channel mode, and it worked fine.
When I installed the remaining two in dual dual-channel mode, however, my profile will not load, and I am given a temporary user profile. All my personal preferences are gone, including firefox bookmarks, desktop shortcuts, start menu preferences etc.

I'm posting a query to corsair as well simultaneously, but do any of you know or have a clue as to what might cause my problem? Or more importantly: how I can fix it?

I ran the memory diagnostics tool included in vista, and it told me I had a memory problem, but did not specify what.

Thanks for all help. It is much appreciated!

The battery is no good on my Gateway laptop, so computer will only run a few minutes when unplugged.  I accidently kicked plug loose from wall and didn't realize it; I saw computer was shutting down due to low battery and I quickly plugged it back in, but it was already powering down.  When I re-booted it, it had to run through all the disk-scans and then when it finally booted, it was under temporary profile and not mine.  I tried to follow directions on Microsoft help forum (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/fix-a-corrupted-user-profile) to fix corrupted user profile, but their step-by-step instructions don't match up with my computer. 
 
In particular, MS tells me to create a new profile and copy my old profile to the new one.  I created new profile, but it tells me to copy all files except the following: Ntuser.dat, Ntuser.dat.log, and Ntuser.ini.  On mine, there are 2 Ntuser.dat.log files and I don't have Ntuser.ini.  The other thing I'm not understanding is once I copy them, I can't figure out how to move it all to the new profile.
 
P.S.  I also tried to change the corrupted profile settings using this method: http://www.sysprobs.com/fix-temporary-profile-windows-7 but had no luck there either.  When logged off/on had the same temporary settings as before.  Plus, the computer is running incredibly slow and locks up a lot when on the internet.  Anytime I have to restart it has to run through...

You cannot access your files and files created in this profile will be deleted when you log off". I tried to log-in in save mode but it did the same thing.

I was going to try ''Repair user account'' to see if it works but i can't see the ''ntuser.ini'' file? (This is about trying to copy the the files from the old account to a new one). And there are 2 ntuser.dat files one is called ntuser1.dat and the other is ntuser2.dat (or something like this) and I don't know which one to copy. Also i tried to copy all the files but it said there's not enough space.

I read some things and it said there is either not any solution or there were some things that worked for SOME people but I'm not very good at computers and in these solutions it said to delete some thing but I'm scared to lose some things in my old account or to ruin my computer!

Hi All,

Need a little advise. My friend is currently having issue's logging in to her laptop. She has the message box "The User profile Service failed login. User profile cannot be loaded"

I've looked this up, and it seems to be about a profile going into backup mode. Now, i've followed the various instructions about going in finding the duplicate profile files and renaming them, however, my main issue is that it's the main administrator account as well as one other account that is bringing up this error. As i cannot get into the main adminstrator account that option didnt work. I can boot into safe mode, and after a little back and forthing can get into the adminstrator account, however, as soon as i attempt to alter anything or even enable the built in adminstrator account, its asking for the main adminstrator accounts password, which upon entering throws out the error again.

The laptop has been in use for but a few months, there's no restore disk either, so any help would be appriciated.

It is an HP computer that my brother brought over because it wouldn't boot. It was giving me a "bootmgr is compressed" message. So I got my Vista repair disc and uncompressed his drive. That got rid of that message but then it was giving me winload.exe errors. So I fixed that and FINALLY it booted up but when I clicked on his user account to log on, I get this error message. I have searched for answers. I came across a fix where you edit the registry if there is a duplicate entry in the profiles section but there isn't an extra one. I can boot into safe mode but I get no administrative tools, no ability to see the event viewer or manage users (idk if this is normal). I did a command I found to make the default administrator account active or something like that, and now when it boots up, there is his user account, and an admin user. If I click his user to log on, I get the error message. If I click the admin account, it loads, but it loads telling me the Vista copy is not genuine.

Anyone have any idea how to fix this? Why is the admin account telling me Vista is not genuine? Thank you.

I know this is a common problem and there are many answers on the internet, but none seem to apply here. Every article mentions going through a number of folders till you reach ProfileList in Registry Editor. Then your are to change file extensions, etc. Problem is the user doesn't even show up in Registry Editor. I still have access to my administrator account (this account shows up in the Registry Editor, but it's the only one), but any new account I make, including actviating the guest account, seems to suffer from this.

A couple weeks ago, my Dell studio XPS laptop started having startup issues. When restarting my computer, the "preparing to configure windows" message came up, then immediately it would reboot. At the time I fixed it by doing a system restore to before the windows update.
Well today I tried logging in and the message "user profile service failed login..." came up after which the system restarted. I tried doing a system restore, but it came up with an error 0x8000ffff. I've tried safe mode as well to no avail.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions on what to do!!

Cheers

I just tried to log in to my Admin account and got the error "The user profile service failed the sign-in. User profile service cannot be loaded"

I can log in to my user account and do admin tasks when prompted by UAC. SFC /SCANNOW shows no errors and CHKDSK shows no errors.

I did a system restore at boot and can now enter the admin account but it has several access errors. I changed another user account to an admin account and that works. However, if I create a new admin account, I get the same error "The user profile service failed the sign-in. User profile service cannot be loaded".

I'm unsure how to proceed from here. Should I do an in place repair install or is there another fix? The fundamental problem is I can't create a new working admin account.

Hi,

Am in a bit of a quandary, here. I am experimenting on a new Windows 7 build, and using a domain account, I copied it to make a "new" default user folder. Now when I try and login using a domain users account, I get the following message:

The User Profile Service Failed the Login
User Profile cannot be loaded

I was able to logon using a domain users account, before I created a new default user folder.
I did take an extra precaution by renaming the old default user folder, and I thought I'd be "good" by deleting the new default user folder - and renaming the old default user folder to what it was.. BUT, I still get the error message.

I am doing this via RDP, but the domain users account does have remote desktop access via the local security group (remote desktop etc.....)

Anybody out there that can PLEASE help me out?

Hi
Recently i have had a few users in our domain unable to logon due to this error. To fix the issue  i have been deleting their local profile and then logging back on so they pick up the mandatory profile stored on the server and everything then works
fine.
Server is running server 2008 r2 and workstations are running windows 7 pro. 
I have just noticed the below error in the event logs on a few of the affected machines.
Windows cannot copy file \\?\C:\Users\lnyberg\AppData\Local\Temp\jds1029303519.tmp\ to location \\?\UNC\CM-DC01$NOCSC$\Profiles$\StaffNew.V2\AppData\Local\Temp\jds1029303519.tmp\. This error may be caused by network problems or insufficient security
rights. 

DETAIL - Access is denied.
Is this what could be causing the issue with logging on? I am a bit confused as to why it would be trying to copy a temp file back to the mandatory profile on the server.
Any ideas would be great
Thanks
Shane

Hey all 
 
Long time user of bleeping computer - gonna jump on in and join the fun and games!
 
Anyway I work in a small local computer repair shop and recently we had LOADS of Vista and Windows 7 machines with the error
 
"The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded"
 
We can repair the fault changing the profile from temporary profile path and swapped the .bak extension in registry. 
 
But what the hell is causing it? We have had two machine back in within two weeks of initial repair. We figured windows update at first but its not a given. 
 
cheers!

Hi, at windows start i get the message "The User Profile Service failed to logon. User profile cannot be loaded". There was no known activity last time system was up and running and it was shut down normal.

The desctop(HP) was delivered some years ago with V7 installed, ONE personal userID with admin auth. was created. Then a System repair disc was created.

What is the safest and simplest way(if any) to fix this problem and maintain the user data?(I did see support strings about this problem but they seem very complicated and confusing to me)

1. Shoud I restart system some functional key to get into safe mode or use the System repair disc and then what option?

2. Should I then logon to the default accountID(not known to me), and restore system to older backup point or shoud I try to repair the personal UserId?

Please advice

I went into Safe Mode and was able to get to the desktop of the laptop. I attempted to go to administrative tools to try and add a new user account but I don't see an option for that.

I have a very bad problem with my PC. It started yesterday and the vista system repair came up and scanned my computer. When it finished I clicked finish and my PC restarted then it did it again..and again...and again.
Then I went into safe mode and virus scanned everything but came up with nothing. So I restarted my PC and it said The user profile service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded. So I clicked ok then my user account came up somehow. I clicked it and it took me to desktop except that half of my programs were gone and like nothing worked, all my documents, downloads, pictures were all gone. I can't do anything on that computer, can anyone help please??(I have googled it but none of the solutions work so I want to find an answer specific to my problem)
 

A:The User Profile Service failed the logon. User Profile cannot be loaded

Most likely it is loading a temporary profile.

First try a system restore to see if can recover the user profile.
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/using-windows-vista-system-restore/

If system restore fails to load while in windows or you get errors, try it from the recovery environment http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial142.html
Here is another solution to try if SR fails to work for you, it shows you how to create a new user account, then log into the new account and copy your old profile over to the new account. This article is for XP but the process is the same for Vista. See "Moving to a new user profile"

Im trying to create a new user account on my computer, but every time i do that, Im unable to login to that name. Only the administrator account is accessible. All new accounts createdwill give me this message:
"The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded." This applies to the guest account as well.

If this helps, when you go to C:\Users, only the main account's folder and a folder called "Public" is present. Im pretty sure it should have showed the folder of the newly created account. Because of this, im unable to copy files from my main account to the new account as the folder for it does not exist.

This is frustrating as im trying to create an account for my brother with parental controls. But we cant even access it without it saying that the user profile cannot be loaded. How can I fix this?

I've been following these instructions from Microsoft:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947215
I went to the registry editor and went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList. It seems that there isn't even any folder associated with the new account. I was only able to find a folder associated with the main account. But none for the new accounts.

I have literally tried every solution found online and NOTHING seems to work.  Our environment, Windows server 2008 domain controller, Windows 7 Pro x64 bit PC's.  Trying to login as a domain user and get the error " User Profile Service failed
the logon.  User profile cannot be loaded".  I can only login with the domain Administrator account, or the local administrator account.  We are NOT using Roaming profiles.  The application event logs do have event error 1500 and event
warning 1509.... see screenshot below.

What I have tried:
Microsoft FixIT 50446
Tried editing the SID's out of the registry manually per KB
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947215
Deleted all domain user profiles from machine
Removed PC from domain and rejoined
Deleted user account from Active Directory and recreated
Verified GPO was not configured to "allow users to logon with temporary profiles"
SFC /scannow
Fresh install of Windows 7 Pro
Live Essentials was never installed (some forums referred to the .sqm file fron event ID 1509 possible relating to an issue with Live Essentials)
Google update was never installed (remember seeing it referred to in a forum as well)
 
I am now out of ideas..  This has been an ongoing issue for about a month and I am finally admitting defeat.  This is my last effort to get help before breaking down and paying the $259 to Microsoft to help resolve it.

A:User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.

Hi Phillip,
 
I would like to verify whether the issue only occurs on special Windows 7 computer or on all Windows 7 computers.

 
I suggest checking the permission of the user profile folders and Default folder. Make sure the users has full control of their profile folders.

 
Meanwhile, ensure the users are the owner of the C:\Users\theirname\NTUSER.dat. Also, please put NTUSER.dat in the security software exclusion
list for testing.
 
Please also post in Server Forum to get more assistance.

Use an admin account, go to the account's picture folder you had before, and answer yes if it asks if it should modify security. ( haven't done this in a while so I can't remember the exact wording )

I've searched for about a week now and have not found a solution. I followed the suggestions about the corrupt Profile and the .BAK SID, but neither are my situation.

My SID is fine - I did manage to find a temporary fix. If I delete and recreate the user in Active Directory on the server it fixes the problem. The problem is, I have 300 computers and every morning there are at least 10 - 15 users I must do this to. Not an ideal solution.

We bypassed Vista, so we had no idea that this Microsoft bug existed until last week.

I recently tried working with my Sony VAIO Desktop. I upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 and ever since I did this I have had a few problems (keyboard would disable after the W7 OS Loaded, etc.) I have been working to remedy this problem and others by 1) cleaning up the hard drive, registry, memory, etc. using AVG Antivirus which I recently installed and its family of products, 2) updating drivers to Video Controller and Storage Controller which AVG alerted I needed to update in Device Manager.

I attempted to update the drivers to the two controllers mentioned above and as windows started to search the internet for solutions after 1-2 hours, I did not get a response and my screen/OS became unresponsive so I had to do a cold boot. (powered off for 15 cycles - standard).

I rebooted my system this morning to find that once I logged on I got - "User Profile Service failed the Logon- User Profile Cannot be loaded" press Ok and it sent me back to the Windows 7 SP1 logon screen again. (looping)

Please provide any knowledge on what to do to remedy this issue. Thanks in advance. Daveq
