Hello other one, and welcome to Vista Forums.what do you mean factory reset?
Hello mindileah, and welcome to Vista Forums.Hi, I am really hoping someone can help. I followed all instructions in the post, including deleting the BAK. When I re-started though, another even though it said I was logging in as the user profile I have been trying to gain access to, it looked identical to the other user profile on the machine, meaning I still don't have access to all of my files in the user profile I most commonly used. I went back and read steps and realized I did not delete the period before BAK. When I tried to go back and do that now, it says there is already something named that. Can anyone help? I also tried System Restore to a point before the problem and that didn't work.
Hi Frank, I think this unfortunately got glossed over due to it being VISTA. I know the problem existed prior to this going by the 2008 thread and 100+ pages. A relative of mine began experiencing this problem this summer as well.Hi,
I encountered the "User Profile Service Failed" error after the July 2013 Windows update.
I tried using a restore point first. That did not work.
There were about 20 updates . I don't know which one caused the problem
