"the user profile service failed to login"

Question: "the user profile service failed to login"

I recently received my new computer which is running Windows 7. I created one user account to begin with and was using that for a few hours and then I decided to create a couple of other user accounts. It lets me create these accounts but if I try to log in to any of them (including the guest profile) I get the error "the user profile service failed to login". I have read a number of articles and watched a video on youtube about the issue. They all say to do roughly the same thing, go into regedit and then the profile list and they give some steps involving changing values and such. I have tried this numerous times in different ways and it will not work, it seems my problem is a bit different. In "profile list" in regedit there doesn't even seem to be any record of these accounts whatsoever and no sign of a "corrupt" account which the previously mentioned articles talked about. I'm really stumped here, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi JManzi,
Please run the diagnostics to check the hardware functionality. Here are the steps:

Restart the system and immediately start tapping the 'F12' key to enter the 'Boot Menu'.
Use the 'Down Arrow' key to highlight the 'Diagnostics' option. Press the 'Enter' key.
The diagnostics will begin. Please note the exact error message/code, if any appears on the screen.

I just spend a long time fighting this problem and wanted to share how I fixed.
I was seeing this error on a Win7 standalone system (local profiles, not logging into a domain).  I had two profiles on it that worked fine, but if I tried to create a new profile, I would be unable to logon to it and would get the "User Profile Service
failed the logon" message.
I tried the steps in KB http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947215 but they did not fix the problem.
After looking through the event logs, I found the following 1509 error in the Application log:
Windows cannot copy file
\\?\C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\SQM\iesqmdata_setup0.sqm to location
\\?\C:\Users\TEMP\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\SQM\iesqmdata_setup0.sqm. This error may be caused by network problems or insufficient security rights.

 DETAIL - Access is denied.
After binging iesqmdata_setup0.sqm I ran across this article:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itprogeneral/thread/e87aafae-c3aa-48df-b188-0ba161fcb9c7
The suggestion there:
"I suggest you check the Advanced Security Settings for the C:\Users\Default folder. Ensure you check the box "Replace all child object permission with inheritable permissions from this object"."
Fixed this problem for me.  I am now able to logon with the newly created accounts just fine.
Hopefully this will help others as well!

Hi all. Recently upgraded to W10 from 8.1 and am now trying to create a new profile for my partner. I am able to create it so that it appears in the Accounts section and on the login page but when I try to login with it I get the error: user profile profile service failed sign in.

I have googled this and see that it has been an issue for many users since W7 but there don't seem to be any fixes online that work. One of the primary fixes listed to to make edits to the user in the registry but the user does NOT appear in the registry at all - I only have myself listed and a separate Admin user.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello Martin, and welcome to Ten Forums.

Usually when this is happening for new accounts that have not yet had their user profile setup, you'll need to refresh Windows.

The thread title is a problem that I've been having while trying to create a new profile for work on my laptop. This is the error message that happens every time I try to log into this profile. All the help I've been able to find online has involved old profiles having this error, but I'm only getting this error with newly created profiles. The regedit solution that the windows site gives doesn't work because my computer isn't creating a path in the registry to that user account apparently, and I honestly have no idea how to fix this.

Hello, I've searched the forum and read several threads on this topic "The user profile service service failed the logon". I went in and found the HYKEY stuff, found the SID stuff, but, I have like 6 SID's and only two of them have LONG numbers after them, which NONE have ".bak" or ".bk". Both numbers are the same, the top number has no caractor's at the end, the bottom number say's "CLASSES". Upon reviewing these SID's, there is NO INFORMATION on the RIGHT SIDE of the screen, is this bad? The account that is locked IS NOT the admin account.

My question is, the "fix" for this listed in another thread is the same fix? Even though i'm not seeing the same stuff on the screen? Or do I have another issue all together? I'm not a wiz bag with computer's, but not totally ignorant, I just don't want to be changing HYKEY's and what not, not knowing if I'm doing more damage then good!

Thanks in advance!

Hi

I'm getting this error message.
I did a google search and found this: You receive a "The User Profile Service failed the logon
But did not help me. I also did a search here and found a few topics with this error message though they didn't solve my problem either, because mine problem seems to be different.

I can login to existing accounts. But I can't login to new ones.
So when I go to the registry editor there's no folder for the new accounts. They just don't exist at all. Only the existing ones.
I create a new user account at the Users menu in Control panel and they show up at login screen. When I click them, it starts the waiting icon saying "Logging in" then after a few seconds, this error message pops up. I can click OK and then it says "logging off" and goes back to the login screen.
I do have access to an administrator account and a standard account, I can log in to both

I don't have any system restore points before this started happening. i'm using ESET Smart Security as my antivirus but I don't think it's causing the problem, I uninstalled it and it didn't work then either so I reinstalled it back.
Please help me what could be wrong?

Did a fresh install of 8. After a few minutes the screen blinked and all the apps were gone. Restarted the computer and it gave me the sign in error.
I attempted to go through safe mode and change some registry keys as instructed by another forum. No luck. I tried creating a new account and no luck. I Reinstalled 8 with another CD and it gave me the same error.

So then I installed windows 7. Same thing. after a few minutes it said windowsexplorer.exe had crashed and all my programs were gone. Restarted to the same login error.

I'm working on a computer that appears to have gone through the "Windows Recover" virus/malware. The user appeared to do a good job of removing the virus and used System Restore to dial the system back about a week (which unfortunately is the furthest back the restore points go for some reason). Everything seemed to work except for the main users account, which had it's profile locations changed to something like c:\users\TEMP.username-PC.000. It was pointing to this directory instead of the original directory. I then opened up regedit and found the entries at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders all pointing to the wrong folder, so I manually edited every entry to point to the correct folder and restarted.

This ended up working against me. When I logged into the account none of the shell folder shortcuts in the start menu would do anything when you clicked on them. The menu would stay up and it was as if I was clicking on nothing at all; no response.

Instead of reversing the edits I had just made manually I decided to try using System Restore to revert the system back to the earliest date, which the owner of the PC said they had done themselves before I got there. I figured the worst that could happen would be it would be just as it was when I first looked at it.

After performing system restore I can only log into the Administrator account. Every other account on the system produced the error message "... Read more

Answer:"The User Profile Service failed the logon" on a fresh, newly created account

It's probably a typing error but I think you are referring to the Windows Recovery fake computer analysis and optimization program. The owner of the PC only used a restore point that took the machine back one week, which by the sound of it, was not succesfull. System Restore cannot be relied on to remove a virus infection as the restore point may have the infection saved in it. Also, once a system is comprimised by an infection it opens the door for other infections to get into the system.

Only a few helpers with the appropriate permissions can give advice on Malware removal outside of the Malware forum so in order to have the system cleaned of the infection you should open a new thread in the Malware forum.

The other option is to do a full reformat and clean install of the OS.

To compound things i then saw open in previous good something and the log on screen appeared - i thought YES, but NO..... typed in my password......"The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loeaded". it appears that i have deleted my account...
i have looked at other threads of this nature and have been directed to a vista tutorial - however it staes that you must be logged on as an administrator - i can't log on!
i've tried opening the command prompt and turing on the in built administrator, but i have to restart to get back to log on page which defeats the command prompt.
i have tried to re-install win7 but comp tells me i have started with disk in restart then insert disk. this does nothing...

i'm really really fed up at the mo i thought that win 7 would be better than this.....

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

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."

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?

She attempted to use it, and got the 'User Account Service service failed." error.

I deleted the account, and tried again with a different named account. Same thing.

The only accounts that seem to work are mine (Administrator) and my nephew's (Standard.)

I read a forum posting for this problem that stated the problem was because of account SIDs and the wonky way Vista goes about its business. Now, at one time I did have two accounts. Chance, and Blake. I deleted Blake because I hadn't realized that he would have permanent access to my private files after navigating to them from his account. However, this did not delete the Blake entry in C:\Users. I created another account for him, again called Blake. This created an entry in C:\Users called Blake.Home.

Now, the only entries I have SIDs for in regedit are Chance, Blake.Home, systemprofile, LocalService, and NetworkService.

There are no SIDs left over from previous accounts that could be causing this trouble.

I went to the System Properties Users tab and found three entries. Unknown Account,Chance, and Blake.

My year old Dell laptop with Vista Home Premium failed to log in on a boot up with the message: The user profile service failed the login. User Profile cannot be loaded.

Numerous attempts to login failed. So, I did boot up in safe mode (but was advised it was not the same user profile) and then I did a system restore back 2 days and now I am ok. But what caused this and now I am nervous each bootup!

I had run a Norton security full system scan the night before and I noticed after restore there were numerous windows updates to install and numerous Norton updates even though both are on automatic update. Could it have been updates were going on when I shut down before the problem bootup.

Any insight appreciated.

Answer:Solved: User profile service failed to login

It sounds as if something in one of your updates didn't finish properly (either a bug or turning off the computer before they were completed, etc...) which was doing something to either your user profile or something in the SAM causing it to become corrupt.

Shouldn't happen, but it did - one possible cause is write caching being misused and not having the cache flush to disk before shutting down...

I am trying to add a second account to my machine and whether I try a Local or Microsoft account, I get the same "User Profile Service failed the sign-in.

I've Googled this a bit and it seems everything I've found yet (except one) has been with logging in to existing profiles. For the one that was with a new profile, the solution didn't work. I tried deleting all files similar to the specified one (file in C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VSCommon\12.0\SQM\ with name of "sqmdata-####-###-#####.sqm"), but that had no effect. I'm guessing this is because I have VS2013 installed, as this happens with my laptop as well. I don't want to delete my profile, I have important (and large) data in my documents folder that I don't want to lose.

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

I've been trying to narrow this problem down for the last few days.

I did a system restore back a number of days, no user programs were installed, but there were system updates installed. Once I do the system restore and turn off the updates, the computer reboots fine and I can log in.

However, if I let the MS updates in, then when I reboot, I get the error and cannot logon.

Clearly there is a problem when the updates happen, and causes this. I originally thought it was due to a specific MS update, but I think it's the update process that is broken. That is what kills the system configuration and then it can't logon.

Hi,

I am running Windows Vista 32 Bit Home Premium. As far as I know, I have all the latest patches / updates. I don't have a CD for Vista.

I have had no problems until I tried to login today and got the following message:

'The User Profile Service failed the login. User profile cannot be loaded'.

I haven't changed anything on my computer between yesterday and today - nothing installed or uninstalled, no files moved around. As far as I know, there have been no major patches / updates for any programmes which I've installed.

My understanding is that the main fix for this is to switch to an administrator login and then fix the corrupted profile, but I only seem to have one profile for my computer (it is my own home computer for my own use and I've never needed to set up another profile).

I have tried using the advanced boot option 'Last known good configuration', but that didn't work.

I have tried logging in using safe mode but when I do this my monitor says 'input not supported', presumably because the display drivers on safe mode are a little off (or so I have read). I have read that I might be able to use the command prompt through safe mode to get to an old system restore point, but obviously I can't see anything once I get through to safe mode!

Using the low resolution mode from the advanced boot options works, but I still only have one profile to log into, so it doesn't get me anywhere.

So my questions are:

First time poster, but I think I've done my homework on this issue.This issue has similar symptoms to a problem with vista: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/130095-user-profile-service-failed-logon-user-profile-cannot-loaded.htmlHowever, it is definitely not the same issue (see further).Current Config:HP dv7-1450.W7 RC 7100 x64Last update (up to date as of 8/31/09) installed succesfully 8/26/09 and should be unrelated to this issue (not verified yet by a pre-update restore).Running with Admin account while diagnosing/troubleshooting.Currently have two working accounts, one standard, one admin.Symptom:New user accounts cannot be logged into.  On an attempted login to the new account, the following information is displayed on the login screen:  "The User Profile Service service failed the logon.  User profile cannot be loaded."  Windows then logs off the operator and returns to the initial user selection screen.  All other aspects of use are normal.Current Diagnostics:First attempts to resolve this problem were to recreate the new account.  This was attempted when logged in as both Standard and Admin.  This was also attempted under safe mode.  This has been attempted with virus protection disabled.  All to no difference in the symptom.The similarity to the Vista issue (linked above) caused me to check the registry entry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\ for the new profile (as suggested by that link).  Unlik...

Great find Flav!While I didn't resolve or have the exact issue 'Brooks-bilson's had, one of the comments on this blog entry (http://www.brooks-bilson.com/blogs/rob/index.cfm/2009/1/5/Fix-for-Vistas-The-User-Profile-Service-service-failed-the-logon-User-profile-cannot-be-loaded#c42AB7AE6-0B26-9AF4-6DB3C7B226C688B4) did have a comment that worked.First I renamed the file "\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\SqmApi\SqmData720896_00.sqm" to \Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\SqmApi\SqmData720896_00.sqm.bakInterestingly, this failed (bolded to help skimming folks).  However, actually moving the file out of the directory (effectively deleting it) did work.  This file was definately related to the problem, but exactly why W7 wasn't able to copy this (such as insufficient permissions or too long name error) is still unresolved.A little bit of information about the process Vista (and presumedly W7) goes through is well laid out in the referenced blog, and I recommend it for education.Unless it pops up again, I'm considering this issue closed and won't be monitoring it.  I hope everyone dealing with this W7 issue finds this helpful.Thanks again, Flav, for the find.D

I manage the Networks for several companies remotely and not all users are computer friendly enough to know both their username and password, only their Password. So, when doing maintenance and I log on to a PC as an administrator or other user I will often
get a call the next day that their "password is not working" because it is using the last logged on user, which this time is me.

Is it possible in any way to set either a default domain user, or set it to a most often logged on model instead of the current last user or the alternative of prompting for user name every time?

Is there a solution to this issue> After I add a new user (standard or admin) via the control panel, through my admin account, the new profile does show in the logon menu, but.. I cannot sign in. I receive the message 'The user profile service failed the log on'. MS's official solution does not help, as there are no duplicate entries or entries ending in 'bak' as they state for me to fix.
It would seem the MS help centre is only willing to reply to very general user questions, or cut and paste already-made past solutions.
I have noticed that this problem was also noted in windows 7. No user profile other than the name. Does anyone have an idea of the possible reason for this error? Windows restore and repair do not fix the problem, and sfc scan does not detect errors. I cannot create a new a new profile and delete the old one. One link suggests using safe mode to fully create a new profile, but that it will not fix the problem. Any ideas?

"The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded."

Does anyone know how to fix this???

Answer:The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded

Hi,

It is possible to fix, however it is slightly tricky. If you have trouble completing any of the following steps feel free to ask for more info.

First, are you able to log in to another administrator account on the affected computer? OR are you able to log in to the affected account and create a new administrator account?

If not then ignore the rest of this post.

If so then follow these steps; at each step make sure you read and understand the entire step:

Go to Control Panel and search for Create a Restore point, open the link and click on the Create button down the bottom right of the window

Follow the instructions to create a restore point.

NOTE: This fix WILL delete EVERYTHING on your Desktop and in your Documents folders. Make sure you back the contents up:
Go to the Hard Drive on your computer that has the most free space and create a new folder called Backup.

Then go to C:\Users\yourname and copy everything into the Backup folder you just created. Check that you can access your documents from the backup folder successfully.

All backed up? Good, now you have to delete your old profile and create a new one:

1. Delete the profile by using the Computer Properties dialog box. To do this, follow these steps:a. Click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties (on the right hand side of the window).
b. Click Change settings.
c. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.

I got a Dell Inspiron 15 laptop with Windows 7 a couple of weeks ago and it has worked fine. But now whenever I try to enter my password to log in the message "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded." comes up and pressing OK just takes me back to the log on screen. The profile is the SysAdmin and is the only profile on the computer.

Also, when I press F8 at start up there is no option for safe mode or anything - instead the window reads "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause..." and my only option is to launch startup repair (or start windows normally). Running this repair runs the system restore although after finishing the system restore the problem is still there.

Thanks, Quaidheizer

"The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded"

Is the error message i get when i try to log in to either my admin user or the one other account on the computer. As the problem is happening with both accounts i have no way to access the computer in order to fix the problem in the ways so many people have done. I was reading something about a way to enable the "Hidden Built-In Administrator Account" via a control prompt which i might be able to use to log in and fix the problems im having but i dont know how to bring up a control prompt window without loging into one of the accounts (which i cannot log into). Essentually im trying to find a way of gaining access to my computer again without wiping the files on it, it would be a pitty to lose all the information on the computer if i dont have to - so im hoping someone might be able to walk me through the fixing process i need to undertake if it is possible to solve these problems without wiping everything and starting from scratch on a blank computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated as i cant find anything on this specific issue (most people seem to be able to log into at least one user still but i cannot use any of the users on my computer), its driving me nuts having to borrow other peoples laptops etc in the meantime so again any help would be muchly appreciated.

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?

Answer: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.

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 main account is accessible. All new accounts I create with my account will 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 but inaccessible account as the folder for it does not exist.
