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.)
hi and welcome to TSF try system restore to before you had this issue thats start all programs accessories system tools system restoreRead other 1 answers
So I'm not sure of the best way to phrase the title, but I got as close as I can I think.
I'm getting started on networking and I'm sure I'll learn this eventually, but I may need to know it sooner.
I work in a computer lab where we teach tech classes, like how to use a computer and such. Well we had the option with Windows 7 of putting needed files in a folder with the name of the account we would log the computers into. I kind of understand the basics
of how this works, but I would like to know more in depth.
What I know, all of our public computers are logged into the same profile (allpub) and they all draw their user information from the same source on the server. We can utilize this to add needed files to the training profile (training) by putting them in
the documents folder in a folder with the same name (training). Any changes users make to these profiles are essentially discarded and not saved to the server location. I can make a change to a file on the training profile and then log off and back on and
the change I made is gone. Every time it logs in it loads from the server location, not the users folder on the computer itself.
What is this feature called is my primary question and what else is there to know about it?
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
profile under Users. There is no .bak registry entry. I cannot locate anything in the registry that points to this user. I checked HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE|SOFTWARE|MICROSOFT|WINDOWSNT|CURRENT VERSION|PROFILELIST. There were 20 profiles but
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
and they did something before. Event log has errors saying:
Windows detected your registry file is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unlo... Read more
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.
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?
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.
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??
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.
when i try to create a new user profile ~ with or without a password, it shows up on the main login page, but when i click on it to open, the message "UserProfileService_service failed the logon_user profile cannot be loaded". i have searched microsoft support with little solutions listed. and the ones that are listed seem too technical for me to be trying on my own. there are many posts there with this problem, but they all seem to be several years old. are there any current fixes to this problem?
i am using windows 7. i have never been able to create any accounts other than my administrator account & the one account i use for all my general computer use. i have been using norton 360 with no problems. i have resorted to just using any "log in/log out' links on all the sites my husband wants to use.
i am really not all that confident doing anything super technical to fix this, since i don't have a real understanding of different extensions or types of files. i am afraid i could really mess everything up really bad. but, it would just be SO MUCH EASIER & FASTER if i had my account & my husband had his own account.
if you can help me out with a fairly easy fix here, i would be so happy. and, if you post an answer to this post, please speak like you would to a 5 year old. i don't know most terms, but if i was helped every step of the way, i'm confident i can do this myself... that is if there really is a solution to this problem...

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
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 :'(
Hello Emily, and welcome to Eight Forums.
Are you able to do what's in the blue note box under step 1 in Option One to enable the built-in Administrator account to use to repair your account from instead?
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...

Recently my computer was freezing a lot and I had to shut it down (from the turn on/off button) and I know this is bad.
Yesterday I shut it down like this then I tried to turn it on it didn't load past the "Welcome'' screen and after some time it loaded and a message showed ''You have been logged in with a temporary profile. 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!

Admin account worked fine on Monday. The kid used her (non-admin) account in the meantime. Now it won't log into the admin account - "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded." I've read a few other boards on this issue, so I am now doing a thorough virus scan and will include results as soon as they're available. But I am not confident about moving forward with any of the paths I've seen laid out, and some of them don't apply if you can't access the admin account anyway, so I wanted to start a thread here (I've gotten fabulous help here several times before). It's running Vista Home Premium SP2. AVG 2013 Internet Security. Can't think what other specs may be relevant, but am happy to provide whatever would be of use. Thanks!!
I got the same message when attempting to login on Windows 7, after no previous problems or changes before shutdown the night before. It continued to loop back to the logon screen even after rebooting. I ended up having to log on in Safe Mode, then do a system restore to restore back to the last restore point, which was a system checkpoint a couple of days earlier. That fixed it, and I've had no problems since. I hope that helps.Read other 3 answers
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.

When I tried to log on to administrator account on vista laptop this morning I got the following error massage "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded." I did some research and found a potential solution: The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.
However the problem is that the solution needs a working administrartor account and the only account I'm able to log in is a standard one with no power to change account type or boot into admin safe mode/ do a command prompt whatsoever.
Would anyone happen to have an alternative solution that doesn't require an admin account to fix this?

Sorry if this is the wrong forum, but I searched the site and found nothing relevant to this problem. Ever since the Patch Tuesday updates of 11/12/14, the system has been building temporary internet files and cookies by huge amounts even when IE11 has not been selected from the desktop. I can go in as the Admin. and delete all of the temporary internet folders and cookie folders that I am allowed to. There are some that are blocked even from the Admin., reboot the system with no applications launced, and watch the files build. In 30 minutes, there will hundreds of files and dozens of cookies created, even though no browser was launched. The system has two users defined, the Admin and the one we use for normal operation. Our grandkids use this system, hence the second user without Admin rights. IE11 is used only by my wife, as I use FF for my browsing (with AdBlock Plus & Ghostery enabled). We have a standing policy of running CCleaner (v4.19) after every browsing session. I have also noticed that the process SVCHOST LOCAL SERVICE will have many instances running. As many as 10 to 20 of them. I also can stop the browser service for awhile and have to do so to get rid of all of the temporary internet files and the extra SVCHOST processes. If left alone, the browser service will start up and the runaway begins anew. I know IE is integral with Win7. Also the temporary internet files point to html pages we have never gone to. It looks like IE11 is using our sy... Read more
I think I found the reason for all of the IE activity. I ran MSERT.EXE last night and it found "win32 trojan downloader" on the system and removed it. It appears that fixed the problem. Here's a link to MSERT.EXE. I ran a full scan as the quick scan didn't find anything. I also went and deleted all of the existing temporary internet files that were on the system.
Microsoft Safety Scanner - Free Virus Scan with the Microsoft Safety Scanner
Update: It's been nearly 24 hours since MSERT.EXE ran and the runaway IE file building has ceased. The system has been shutdown and booted three times in that period and no repeat of the problem. I'm going to call this one solved.
I had the following error:
The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.

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 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
Hello Daveq, and welcome to Seven Forums.
The tutorial below should be able to help with this error.
User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.
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:
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.
Back to the beginning...what steps did you actually take...to create a new profile?
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)
Most likely it is loading a temporary profile.
First try a system restore to see if can recover the user profile.
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"
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
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"
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.

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.

i encounter this problem when i try to login my account which is under a domain.
User profile service failed the logon User profile cannot be loaded.
Will the OU in ad will affected this problem? Firstly, this machine hostname have not move to Finance OU. But i can login my own account. my account has move to Finance OU. I try my colleague login id as well. His user account was also in the Finance OU. but he cannot login. he get the user profile service failed the logon. user profile cannot be loaded. This is cause by OU or is it the windows issue? i have try to rejoin the domain same problem. This is a new machine so i believe the registry fix on the profile list does not help at all. i try to copy the default folder under user to my usb and then transfer to the new pc same problem as well.

When I tried to log on to Test account, I received the above message.
I used the tutorial compiled by Shawn but failed :
The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded. - Vista Forums
1. I don't remember when was the last time I successfully created a new user account. Therefore, not knowing which is the good restore point for this matter.
2. The tutorial mentioned SID key with .bak at the end.
There are 3 SID keys, but none has .bak at the end.
3. name of ProfileImagePath is as follow ...........
a.1001 belongs to t-4-2
b. 500 belongs to Administrator
c. 501 belongs to Guest
I don't see the SID key for the Test account.
Therefore, I am stuck. not knowing how to proceed.
see screenshot :
P.S. Guest account was NEVER activated.
The SID key for the user profile will not be created until the first time a newly created user account is logged on to.
You might see if this part of the tutorial may be the issue you are having.
Rob Brooks-Bilson's Blog: Fix for Vista's: The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded
I have a very annoying problem on wireless tablets running windows 8.1 update.
The tablets boot nice and fast (approx 30-35 seconds) to the ctrl + alt + del screen.
However the network mandatory profiles used by students do not work for another 60 seconds after that.
For the first 60 seconds or so after ctrl+alt+del shows up they get the error message "User Profile Service Failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded". After that they
will login just fine.
We've looked at procmon bootlogs and it shows BADNETWORKPATH the first couple of times you try to call the network path to the mandatory profile.
We have tired setting various Group Policy Objects to force them to wait for the network based on various other posts on this and other sites.
Always wait for the network, Wait for group policy processing, wait for network timeout etc. None of them seem to make any difference.
Can somebody explain to me how to resolve this issue.
I have a Dell laptop that has Windows Vista. Received the below message after I typed in my password for the adminstrator account
The User Profile Service failed the logon. User Profile cannot be loaded
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.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the Microsoft support article for that.

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.
Have you read this Microsoft Support article?
There are similar articles for Vista and XP.
lately when i try to turn on the Guest user ( its my first time to turn on it)
then when i try to log on using guest i encounter a error message?
the user profile service failed to logon user profile cannot be loaded , i already try to make another user but the message or error is still appearing ,
but my main user is working im just worried about this and i already try some solution here but its not working
im using Windows 7 , thank you in advance !
You might see if the tutorial below may be able to help fix this for you. User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.
If not, then I'd recommend to turn off the Guest account, delete any 501 key below found for the C:\Users\Guest account at the same registry location in the tutorial above, delete the C:\Users\Guest folder, and restart the computer. This will give you a fresh start with the Guest account as if you never turned it on.
Hope this helps,
Hey Guys so this happened to my laptop the other day and I have only got round to fixing it now, I tried a few options like editing the .bak files etc with no luck so I recovered what I could and just deleted the user profile an that seemed to of fixed the issue.
I was just wondering if their is anyway to delete the data off the old user user profile without having to format the hard drive. As its still taking up space on my hard drive even though the profile is deleted.
Many thanks in advance
Hello Damian, and welcome to Vista Forums.
Since you have already deleted the user account through the Control Panel, you should be able to just delete C:\Users\(user-name) folder for the old user account while logged in the new account.
Hope this helps,
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
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
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

Its my friends comp im trying to fix it 4 him but im stuck
fixed it using this
I've got my user profiles stored on my data drive (C: OS drive/D: Data drive) running Win 7 Ultimate. This morning, I booted up my computer and Windows couldn't find the D: drive due to a simple drive mounting issue. I resolved that issue and the D: drive is now permanently mounted. My problem is, now, every time I try and log into my profile, I get logged into the temp profile even though D:/my user profile location is available.
I've reviewed http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/13...ot-loaded.html and http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947215/en-us. Both of those articles say to delete the profile and then re-create it. Why does it have to be such a PITA? My profile directory is over 200GB and will take forever to copy back-and-forth. I'd love to be able to just force my profile to login to the proper directory instead of the temp directory and skip all the 'delete/re-create/copy files' business.
This is Windows 7...things should be easier.
Thanks in advance for any help!
Boot from your install DVD -> Repair computer -> Startup repair options -> Command Prompt -> type:
net user administrator /active:yes
This will enable the built-in admin account. To disable it type net user administrator /active:no.
whilst messing around trying to change the permissions on an external hard drive, i irresponsibly executed some command or other i found on google. i was supposed to execute it on the external drive but unfortunately i didn't change the drive in command prompt.
problem is - i dont have a clue what the command was!
and now i have the dreaded problem of a TEMPORARY PROFILE every time i log in.
i have found other threads which suggest backing up everything from that profile and then deleting it and reinstating it.
unfortunately - i can't do this,for a couple of reasons -
A. for some reason,permissions on my system are completely messed up. i can't take any files from the folder with the (TRUE) administrator account because i don't have the permissions to,
B. i have a 120gb HDD, 110GB of which is the files for my profile - music, videos, etc. i have nowhere to copy them to!
if anybody has any suggestions or ways to help me i would be extremely appreciative.
the only thing i know about the command is that it was something related to changing an ACL (access control list). looks like i've altered the access to my profile, so that my profile cannot access it, if that makes sense!
i'll post this now and then i'll scour google to try and find the command which i typed.
PS - i've tried system restore, to no avail
i found the command which i entered -
cacls * /G Ant:F /T
("Ant" being the username of the profile)
backed up the files onto the hard drive root, deleted the account, re-created the account and now i cannot transfer the original users/ant/* folders, into the new users/ant folder, even though all of the permissions are set correctly.
can anyone help me with this?
when i try to copy, using either administrator, or the new "Ant" account, it says -
"You need permission to perform this action", and gives the options "Try again", "Skip" and "Cancel".
sorry to waste anyones time, i managed to fix this, i changed ownership of all of the files to administrator, moved them back into /users/Ant, set the new account as administrator, and then transferred ownership from there. For some reason before i took ownership with administrator account, it wouldnt let me take ownership with "Ant", so i had to do it the long way.
hopefully my little self-discussion may help someone else along the lines
Hi, I bought my laptop about 2 years ago and have never had any problems with it. It is a Toshiba Equium L40-10Z, and uses windows vista.
For about a month now it randomly closes Internet explorer and says that it has "stopped working". However this wasn't very frequently.
2 days ago I turned my laptop on and tried to log into my profile and entered my password as usual. The welcome page stayed on for about a minute instead of the usual 5-10 seconds, and then the page changed to say that it was "setting up my desktop" or something very similar to this. This then stayed on for about another minute or so. When it finally loaded up it was put on a "temporary profile" with only a few of my usual programs showing on my desktop. A pop up in the bottom corner told me that I could not be logged into my profile and so I was put on a temporary profile and that any changes that I made would not be saved.
I can still use my laptop for things such as accessing the internet however I cannot access any of my files, many of which have important college work in.
I have downloaded music from the internet from sites such as myspace and thisis50, but I regualarly run scans using norton anti virus, and there is only ever 1 tracking cookie that has been there all the time, that has a low risk warning.
I have never done anything like this before but I searched for help and found the HijackThis tool, I have ran the scan and saved the "log" and I thin... Read more
Sorry I hadn't saved the log in an appropriate program. I think it is now attached.
When I start my NB my account is starting, but there is create Temp Account only.
System notes "You have been loggend on with a temporary profile..."
Do you have any ideas?
Yeah. Your account is corrupted in some way. Create a new one and use that. Problem solved.
This has happened a total of three times, and it's bugging me.
The first time was maybe a month ago, when I attempted to shut down my computer and it said that there were some processes running and that I'd have to "Force Restart." I did so, and when I logged in, my desktop came up looking like I had just installed it, and the little box in the attachment came up.
This has happened two other times recently, but on startup. I'll log in to my account as usual, but instead of "Welcome," it says "Preparing your desktop," and takes forever to load. Then it'll do as I described earlier.
Any idea how to to fix this?

User Profile Error - Logged on with a Temporary Profile - Vista Forums
Hope this helps,
hey, I am using windows 8. and I got the free windows 10 upgrade. I tried to upgrade that and I don't it has been upgraded or not but whenever I turn on my laptop it puts me into some temporary profile and because of that I am unable to see my all data and files. They want me to download each and every programs which I already had before. I am getting this notification when I turn on the laptop "Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off." I just want to use my original profile with all my important data. Can anybody help to fix it?
A few days ago, I logged in and my desktop and files were wiped clean and I got this message: "You have been logged on with a temporary profile. To fix this, log off and try logging on later. Please see the event log for details or contact your system admin." I shut down and tried again a half hour later and it was fine. Every day for the past few days, the same thing has been happening and yesterday it took about 8 reboots to get my regular profile up.
This is a new PC that I got late last year, and there are no signs of a virus or any other problems. I have not touched my profile or made any changes. This came out of nowhere. Anyone know how to solve this issue? A brief search online has brought up some suggestions of changing the registry keys, but that can be extremely dangerous unless I know exactly what I'm doing.
I dont mind suggesting you the registry fix but it may be confusing and has risks.

User Profile Error - Logged on with a Temporary Profile
Hope this helps,
Help... this happened again
I turned my computer on this morning and it said it was "preparing your desktop"
It NEVER says that. And it logs me into a temporary profile.
And JUST like last time, when I got to my desktop, some items are gone.
Last time this happened it was right after an update. I looked, and no updates happened within the last day or two. Definitely not when I shut down last night.
And last time this happened, I asked for help here and never figured out just what happened or if it was possible to get back whatever disappeared. I looked things up and I did not find much help on the internet anywhere.
I found someone suggesting doing a system restore. I was not even able to do that.
There's a part of me that thinks about reformatting my hdd but I have SOOOO many pictures and things I'd have to back up externally(which I know, I should do anyway) but that's so much work.... downloading and installing all sorts of programs, setting them up, getting things just the way I had them... so much work.
But more than that... that wont help me to figure out WHY this happened and if there's any way to figure out which items disappeared...
I hate when computers do things I can't figure out... unfortunately... that happens......

This was happening to me as well for a while. I would enter my password, hit enter and it would load into a temp profile instead of the one I logged into. I noticed if I clicked the arrow instead of hitting enter it would log in fine. I ended up doing a fresh re-install on an SSD upgrade before ever resolving this issue myself though.Read other 5 answers
