    I haven't tried this, but the author says that it worked for him:

    Otherwise, I'd create a new user profile for yourself and selectively
    transfer your documents over to the new profile.

    Eish, this is a real "heartsink" post, and I've been eyeing it awhile


    Windows will spawn a temporary profile if the profile can't load,
    which is often due to a bad registry hive, or a bad rehgistry hive log
    file. The hive log file you can rename away or delete, but the hive
    itself you would need to recover e.g. from System Restore \SVI.

    This temporary profile is transient; changes are not persisted across
    runtime sessions. So you're stuck with unsafe UI duhfaults etc.


    Windows will spawn a duplicate profile with the PC name appended to
    the end of the subtree name, if you "just" do a repair install. This
    is in effect a new user account that has a different underlying CLSID
    (or is that GUID?) and it will persist across runtimes as you expect.

    An implication of this is that you should not hard-code account
    subtree references, even to "known" names such as "All Users", as
    these may no longer be active after a "repair" install.


    Repairing the file system (ChkDsk /F or AutoChk) may re-facilitate
    access, or irreversibly damage bent files in a way that ChkDsk can
    then no longer detect as being bent.


    All of the above is from XP experience, BTW, as are my notes [*1] on
    recovering registry hives from \SVI via Bart. The concepts should
    carry over where applicable, but the mechanisms will differ.

    Re: user profile did not load correctly

    I have the same problem, but I dont get a temp account. I get a toolbar like 98, a pop up box appears telling me my user has failed to load, and a toolbar icon appears saying that there are errors. I have no idea on what it is, the only way i can get it going is if i start it in safe mode. Does anyone know why it is doing this?

    Hi Jbrulz,

    Welcome to Vista Forums.

    Did you get this error message instead "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded." ?

    If so, this tutorial will show you how to fix it.

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