Windows 7: User Profile Service Failed

09 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
User Profile Service Failed

I get the message "The user profile Service failed the log on. User profile cannot be loaded"

This is for the Administrator account. I can logon successfully as the standard user but cannot change the Administrators account or delete it and create a new one.

What are my options. Do I need to reinstall Windows? Hope there is another way, like a repair process.

This is on a Dell laptop as a stand alone machine (no network logon)
Windows 7 Home 32bit.

Thanks for you help
