How to Fix the Error "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded."
Synopsis
This will show you how to fix the error :
The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.
How to Fix the Error "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded."

information   Information
When you log on to Vista or Windows 7 using a temporary profile (user account), you receive this error message:

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

For more information, see:
Error message when you log on to a Windows Vista-based or Windows 7-based computer by using a temporary profile: "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded"
Note   Note
CAUSE:

The jury is still out on the exact cause, but so far :
  • This issue may occur if the user profile was manually deleted by using the command prompt or Windows Explorer by a user or by some program. A profile that is manually deleted does not remove the security identifier (SID) from the user profile list in the registry. Since the SID is still present, Vista will still try to load the profile by using the ProfileImagePath that points to a nonexistent path. Therefore, the profile cannot be loaded.
  • This can also be a issue with the user profile entering into a backup state.
  • Manually renaming the C:\Users\(User Name) user profile folder.
warning   Warning
If you have this error message below instead, then see: How to Fix the Error "Your user profile was not loaded correctly! You have been logged on with a temporary profile." in Vista

Your user profile was not loaded correctly! You have been logged on with a temporary profile.

Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off. Please see the event log for details or contact your administrator.

Tip   Tip
If the steps in the tutorial below do not help or you wish to try this first, then:




STEP ONE
Log on to the Computer
warning   Warning
You must be logged on to an administrator account using either step 1 or 2 below before you can move on to do either the OPTION ONE or OPTION TWO sections.

1. To Log on to another Administrator account.
NOTE: If you do not have another Administrator account, then proceed to step 2.​
A) Go to OPTION ONE or OPTION TWO.​

OR
2. To Boot into Safe Mode and Use the built-in Administrator account
NOTE: You may not need to enable the built-in Administrator account. If this was the only normal administrator account you had, then Safe Mode should automatically boot into the built-in Administrator account.​
Tip   Tip
If you cannot boot into Windows and do not have a Windows installation DVD, then you can create and use the boot disc below to boot into Safe Mode with instead.
Tip   Tip

Windows 7: (Option Two at link)
Vista: (Option One at link)

A) Boot into Safe Mode (in Vista) or Safe Mode (in Windows 7).​
B) If Safe Mode did not boot into the built-in Administrator account, then enable the built-in Administrator account. If it did, then go to step 2D.​
C) Log off in Safe Mode, and then log on to the built-in Administrator account to logon with that account in Safe Mode.​
D) Go to OPTION ONE or OPTION TWO.​




OPTION ONE
To Fix the User Account Profile

1. Open the Start menu.​
2. In the white line (Start Search) area, type regedit and press Enter.​
3. If prompted by UAC, either click on Continue (Vista) or Yes (Windows 7).​
4. In regedit, go to: (See screenshot below step 5)​
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
5. In the left pane, look for the S-1-5..... folder (SID key) with the long number that has .bak at the end of the numbers.​
(See screenshots below steps 6A and 7B)​
NOTE:
A) In the right pane, look at the ProfileImagePath to verify that this is the user account profile that has the error.​
B) You may have another S-1-5..... folder (SID key) above it with the exact same number without the .bak at the end of it.​
6. If you have Two S-1-5..... folders (SID key) with the same Number
NOTE: This is if you have two S-1-5..... folders (SID key) with the exact same numbers, but the second (below) one has the .bak at the end of the numbers.​
A) In the left pane, right click on the first (top) S-1-5..... folder (SID key) that does not have .bak at the end of the numbers and click Rename. (See screenshot below)​
Repair.jpg

B) Add .bk to the end of the numbers. (See screenshot below)​
Repair_bk.jpg

C) In the left pane, right click on the second S-1-5..... folder (SID key) with .bak at the end of the numbers and click Rename. (See screenshot above)​
D) Remove only .bak from the end of the numbers and press Enter. (See screenshot below)​
E) Now go back and Rename the first one with .bk to .bak now at the end of the numbers and press Enter.​
Repar_bak.jpg

F) Go to step 8.​

7. If you have Only One S-1-5..... Folder (SID key) with .bak
NOTE: This is if you only have one S-1-5..... folder (SID key) for your user account with .bak at the end of the numbers.​
A) In the left pane, right click on the S-1-5..... folder (SID key) with .bak at the end of the numbers and click Rename. (See screenshot below)​
B) Remove only .bak at the end of the numbers and press Enter. (See screenshot below and below step 10)​
Repair_Reg2.jpg


8. In the right pane of the one without .bak now, right click on RefCount and click on Modify. (See screenshot below step 10)​
NOTE: If you do not have RefCount, then right click on a empty space in the right pane and click New and DWORD (32 bit) Value, then type RefCount and press Enter. This value for this entry will reset and return back to the original value after you have restarted the computer and logged on to the account.​
A) Type 0 (number) and click on OK. (See screenshot below)​
Modify_RefCount.jpg


9. In the right pane of the one without .bak now, right click on State and click on Modify. (See screenshot below step 10)​
NOTE: This value for this entry will reset and return back to the original value after you have restarted the computer and logged on to the account.​
A) Type 0 (number) and click on OK. (See screenshot below)​
Modify_State.jpg


10. The registry will now look like this for the one without .bak now. (See screenshot below)​
Repair_Reg2.jpg

11. Close regedit.​
12. Restart the computer.​
13. See if you can logon now.​
NOTE: If this still does not help, then either try OPTION TWO below or see the yellow TIP box at the top of the tutorial.​



OPTION TWO
To Delete the User Account and Create Another One

warning   Warning
You can do this option if you do not care about losing the user account and the contents in the user folders. Your programs will still be installed, but you will need to create new shortcuts for them afterwards.

1. Delete the User account profile that this error is for.​
2. Open the Start menu.​
3. In the white line (Start Search) area, type regedit and press Enter.​
4. If prompted by UAC, click on Continue (Vista) or Yes (Windows 7).​
5. In regedit, go to: (See screenshot below step 7)​
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
6. In the left pane, click on one of the S-1-5..... folders (SID key) with the long number in it.​
NOTE: It may have .bak at the end of it.​
A) In the right pane, look at the ProfileImagePath to see if this is the same user account that you deleted in step 1 above.​
B) Repeat step 6 until you find the one that you deleted in step 1 above.​
NOTE: If the user account is not here, then it has already been removed when deleted in step 1. Go to step 9.​

7. To Backup the Registry SID Key
WARNING: You should backup this SID key to be safe in case you delete the wrong one in step 8 below.​
A) Right click on the SID key, and click on Export.​
B) Type in a name and save the REG file to a safe location.​
NOTE: This is your backup. To Restore the Backup, right click on the REG backup file and click on Merge.​
C) Continue on to step 8.​
SID_Reg.jpg


8. To Delete the Registry SID Key
A) Right click on the SID key, and click on Delete. (See screenshot above)​
B) Click on Yes to confirm deletion. (See screenshot below)​
Confirm.jpg


9. Close regedit.​
10. Now, just create a new normal Administrator account.​
11. Restart the computer, and log on to your new account.​
NOTE: If this still does not help, then either try OPTION ONE above or see the yellow TIP box at the top of the tutorial.​
That's it,
Shawn

Latte252,

I would say it was time for a reinstall. It appears that it is beyond repair. If you have anything you do not want to lose, you could boot into the command prompt from the Startup Repair options and manually copy them to DVD if you can still access them.

:(

Hi, the solution does not work for me: I have just one SID folder with .bak. After renaming it (deleting .bak) and setting RefCounter and State to 0, I tried to reboot but I could not login again. After logging as Administrator I found out that the SID folder has again the .bak extension and the State is set to 800 (hex) = 32768 (dec). I tried couple of times with the same result. Any idea? Thanks for help! Standa.

Instead of renaming it try *copying* it so the .bak one is still there as well...

Dint work for me. Are there any "standard" variables for the RefCount and state?? I have both .bak and the one without. I think they the variables are messed up, so I can only start in safe mode. Is there any way to restore to start registry??
Thanks

Hi Dinnsen,

Welcome to Vista Forums. :party:

Did you do step 6 in Option One?

If you did, then see if doing a System Restore using a restore point dated before the problem will fix this problem for you. This tutorial will show you how to if needed.

Hope this helps,

Dinnsen,

It may be beyond repair, but you can attempt a Repair install to see if that will work for you. I would recommend backing up anything you do not want to lose to be safe. This tutorial will show you how to if needed.

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/88236-repair-install-vista.html

If that does not help, then the only option is a clean reinstall.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Dinnsen,

I would recommend that you backup what you do not want to lose and do a clean reinstall. It appears that your computer is beyond repair, and it may be faster than attempting to.

Sorry, :(

Hi Shawn

Same deal happened to me yesterday and if it wasn't for your advice, would have reloaded vista as per Dell technical support advice.

Thanks Heaps all working fine.

Tried to go a step further for the ownership of the administrator account and didn't see same as what you were referring to..... job is only half done, will this matter?

Thanks again

Hi Baz,

Welcome to Vista Forums. :party:

I'm happy to hear that you have this profile error fixed now. If everything is working fine, then you will probably not need to do anything else.

However, I'm not sure what you meant about "ownership of the administrator account". Could you give more details on what you meant and what you tried to do?


Thank you,
Shawn

Baz,

By default you have full ownership of your user account which is basically just the user folders. Everything else is owned by TrustedInstaller or System which is shared by all users.

If you show Full control checked for your user account and everything is working fine, then I would not worry about it.
