Hello Colin, and welcome to Seven Forums.
Depending on exactly what the error message said, you may be able to fix it yourself by using the tutorial below for the error message.
The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded. - Vista Forums
User Profile Error - Logged on with a Temporary Profile - Vista Forums
However, if you keep getting this error, then the only way around this would be to create a new administrator account. Next, copy all of the contents of the old user account's C:\Users\(user-name) folders (including hidden AppData folder) into the corresponding new account's C:\Users\(user-name) folder. After everything checks out ok, you can delete the old user account while logged in the new user account.
Hope this helps,
