Windows 7 Enterprise - User logs in with temporary profile - 3 different machines/no roaming profile?

Q: Windows 7 Enterprise - User logs in with temporary profile - 3 different machines/no roaming profile?

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 unloaded now. The applications or services that hold your registry file may not function properly afterwards.
DETAIL -
2 user registry handles leaked from...winlogon.exe, svchost.exe

Any suggestiosn?

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 Enterprise - User logs in with temporary profile - 3 different machines/no roaming profile?

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.)

A: Windows 7 Enterprise - User logs in with temporary profile - 3 different machines/no roaming profile?

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.

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.

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!

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!

Hello!

I had taken apart and dusted my PC yesterday, and upon starting it back up my main profile seems to be corrupt. When I attempt to log into it, Windows places me into a temporary user instead. I have wracked the internet for solutions and tried almost everything I have come across. This includes:

-Changing the registry values for the correct profile (removing .bak) and restarting PC

-Deleting the registry value for the correct profile and restarting the PC to attempt to recreate the profile (It still logged me into a temporary)

-Copying the entire profile (without hidden user files residing in main user folder like ntuser.dat, .log, .ini) to a new profile and restarted PC

-Running a chkdsk in safemode (did not fix anything), along with a sfc/scannow afterwards

I have come to the end of my rope. I do not know or understand what needs to be done at this point to restore my profile. I desperately need all the files on my profile and drive, so I do not wish to reformat my PC.

The only next possible step I can see for myself is make a copy of the profile I am trying to save, and then delete the original from the users folder. Then I would restart the computer and try to log into that account so that it is remade, and paste the old contents of the profile into the newly made 'same' profile.

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

My computer has been to auto-update windows.  After an update two days ago I am given a bubble stating that I am signed in with a temporary user profile.  I am prompted to sign out, and sign back in with my user profile info.  Which, I did, but I am still being logged in with the temporary profile.  I'm trying not to panic,  but I cannot access any of my photos, documents or files. 
 
Every time Microsoft does one of the automatic updates I end up spending hours trying to get my PC back to where it's useful again.  Historically, I have gone to the Microsoft website and updated ALL the other updates, and that has resolved the issue; the issue is usually that I can no longer browse the internet.

I have deleted their account from Active Directory and have then tried to delete their profile from the roaming profiles folder. But when I do this I get the access denied message, the reason being that the file may be open or I do not have sufficient rights. I have also taken ownership of the folder so I have all the correct permissions.

Anyone have any ideas ?

Hello,

I have an issue that I need serious help with. (The user is my boss...nuff said.) He has been using a laptop with windows 7 professional for some time now and recently he reported to me that when he undocks his laptop and takes it on the road (for example) he does not see his desktop icons, quick launch etc... If he saves a file to the desktop for example, it is gone once he logs off or reboots. We recently got him a new laptop running windows 7 enterprise and are still seeing the same issue! Now, we are using roaming profiles in our environment and I am considering moving him to a local profile as this is really the only machine that he uses. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can fix his local profile? I want to say that it either related to GPOs or his user account as this happens on two different machines. As far as redirection, we have his documents redirecting to his home folder but there are not other user policies applying to his account. Thank you for your time and advice in advance!

Hello --

I've searched quite a bit and have done quite a bit... this is my last stop before I dump the login and go to something else.

I had a profile that was acting odd not loading different apps slow logins etc so I wanted to basically wipe it and start over and now i'm having issues.

I started by deleting everything about the login from both active directory the server profiles folder and even the individual computers that are used to login with it at.

To do so I deleted the folders out of the users/%username% and then also went into regedit and deleted the profilelist with the username as well.

To me the profile should literally be as if it never existed....

Next I recreated it in active directory recreated it's folder in the profile database and attempted to login...

the computer immediately goes to a black screen and then says logging off and back to login.

I've looked up several fixes but none have worked.. at this point i'm open to trying anything...

Hi All,

I have been trying to find some information regarding roaming profiles from an end user perspective but most everything I have been able to find so far has been geared towards either the creator of the roaming profiles or the administrator of the roaming
profiles.  The angle I am looking for information on is, from the end user point of view.

The agency I work for has assigned roaming profiles to some of the staff member due to the need for these people to be able to work from any available workstation during their shift.  For the most part, these roaming profiles have worked
great and most people have no issues with theirs.  However, there are some whose profiles have grown become very large which affects the speed at which the computer logs them on and logs them off.  There is just so much data associated
with their that has to be saved and then downloaded.

My question is this, what steps can the end user take on their part to cleanse their profile?  Clear out the recycle bin, minimize the number of shortcuts they have on their desktop, set IE to clear out temporary internet files when they close but what
are some other things they can do?

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions that I can pass on to the staff.

It said I need to contact admin (which I am so I'm confused!) or view event log (and clearly I don't know what that is or where to find it) it also said that any changes would not be saved.

A:Windows Cannot Load The User's Profile But Has Logged On With The Default Profile

Corruption of the user profile can be a pain to sort out, especially if it’s the index file that’s failed. SOMETIMES, however, simply logging off, leaving the computer at the ‘Press Ctrl+Alt+Del’ screen for about 30 seconds or so, then logging in as usual, can solve this without any further intervention, so I’d suggest giving that a go first.

Further suggestions are a bit more involved.

Log in as another user with administrative rights (such as Administrator) and then open the My Computer icon and navigate to the local hard disk and into the Documents and Settings folder. Look there for the folder which has the same name as the user who’s profile cannot be loaded and go into it. You may have to unhide hidden files and folders (from the Tools menu, select Folder Options and then the View tab, then, in the Advanced Settings box, under Hidden Files and Folders select ‘Show hidden files and folders’) and then locate the file NTUSER.DAT and rename it NTUSER.OLD, then log out, and back in as the failed user. This should replace the corrupted file and allow you to log back in.

A number of my users are randomly corrupting their roaming profiles. There appears to be no set pattern and it can happen either following logoff or even when they are logged on.
They all have Win7 SP1.
I know how to reset and fix the corrupted profile, but I want to understand what the best course of action to establish the root cause of the corruption.
There is a hot fix KB2918893 which claims to prevent the issue, however I have found profiles corrupting with or without that patch installed.
There always appears to be some associated Application EventLog entries as follows:
EventID 6001 - Warning - Microsoft-Windows-Winlogon - The winlogon notification subscriber <sens> failed a notification event
EventID 6004 - Warning - Microsoft-Windows-Winlogon - The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> failed a critical notification event.
EventID 6006 - Warning - Microsoft-Windows-Winlogon - The winlogon notification subscriber <profiles> took 78 second(s) to handle the notification event (logon)

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...

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? 

Thanks

i had just recently had restarted my computer in order for it to update and i logged into my Administrator account and it said "Preparing Your Desktop" instead of "Welcome like it usually does...like it was a whole new account

and there was a message @ the bottom saying that "you have been logged on with a temporaly profile, change you make to this profile will be lost when log off"

i checked my disk space to see if it was still the same and if any files have been removed and it was still the same as before 194g/298g...all my files were still intact but they were not showing

i then went into C:/Users/(My Account) and was relieved to see that all my files were there

so here is were my stupidity came into to play i had moved all my administrator files to the temporary user profile account thinking that they would be safe...so i went ahead and logged out ... @ the time i did not think that moving my administrator files to the temporary profile would mean that i would lose them

i logged back in and all the files were gone ...i checked my disk space again and it changed 212g/298g..so i pretty much panicked thinking they were gone for good...i know their still on my hard drive though...im just not that high-tech on how to gain the access to them back...HELP!!

A:Logged into temporary user profile...lost all administrator files

What part of this message did you not understand?

"change you make to this profile will be "lost" when log off"

The more you use the PC the less chance you have at recovering your files, turn it off.

If the files are irreplaceable you will either have to have a professional recover them (expensive) or attempt it yourself.

Remove the hard drive from that PC, install it in a external USB hard drive enclosure, then connect it to another PC that has this software already installed and ready to use
http://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm
Then use the software to scan the entire drive, (takes quite some time) when it is done you can look at the results of the scan and choose the files/folders you wish to recover.

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!!

A:User Profile svc failed logon. User profile can't be loaded." on admin acct.

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.

OS: Windows XP v2002 Professional SP3
1) I restored the computer system as I had lost everything stored in the old user profile.
2) A NEW USER PROFILE: 'mlinda" is created with the correct domain attached to it (eg. CAA MAU) and is fully restored.
3) The OLD USER PROFILE "m.linda" remains in the documents and settings BUT
- the domain is of a local computer (eg. SPARXX) and it no longer works with the (eg. CAA MAU) domain
4) The original "m.linda" user profile contains almost nothing in it (no documents etc)
5) m.linda is still listed in the userlist in computer management BUT NOT THE NEW mlinda
6) In administrator mode, I dont't see ALL the contents of the newly restored profile
Questions:
How do I change user profile "mlinda" (that has successfully retored everthing) back to "m.linda" since the new profile has everything intact:

1) How do I safely delete the newly restored "mlinda" and ensure everything is back to normal with the OLD USER PROFILE: m.linda?

2) How to ensure that the correct domain name is attached to the profile, by transferring all the data from THE NEW mlinda (eg. domain: CAA MAU) to THE OLD m.linda (that currently has a local computer domain: SPARXX). User profile, m.linda has to be attched to domain: CAA MAU.

3) Should I be backing up before eventhough the new mlinda is in super condition?

4) I read in forums that the links to desktop can be lost by transfering. How do I retain it?... Read more

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.

Hello

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?

Hi. I made the mistake of leaving a domain before I grabbed every bit of data I needed out of my profile. I need to log into the PC with the old domain user profile again. I created a new user account "olddata" and made it administrator. I went to command prompt and did a cacls c:\users\strahan /e /g olddata:f /t /c and let that process. After done, I logged off and back on as olddata so it would create a profile. Logged out and back in as local box admin and went to the registry and set the profile folder for olddata from c:\users\olddata to c:\users\strahan. Logged out, logged in as olddata and it immediately logs me out. I don't even get as far as a desktop.

What did I screw up? How can I make a new user profile use that old profile's folder? I also tried robocopying the data to olddata's folder, but it had the same effect (immediate logoff).

Thanks!
