User profile cannot be loaded

Hello,

I have a issue with my profile, when I try to logon to my profile at login screen this message appears -
"User profile service failed to logon. User profile cannot be loaded."

Any help would be appreciated.

But the thing is that I don't have another administrator account and I get this same error when I try to login in safe mode.

Hello Monz,

You can use the steps under "In Preparation" in the tutorial above to enable and log in to the built-in Administrator account to then be able to do the rest of the tutorial.

Hi,

"A) Using your "retail" Windows 7 installation disc or a created*system repair disc, boot into*Safe Mode."
If you mean on this, im unable to do these methods.

What's preventing you from being able to?

Are you able to use OPTION TWO to open a command prompt at boot?

If need be, you could create a Windows 7 Enterprise installation DVD/USB on another PC to use at boot on your PC to do the steps (Method II) to: Built-in Administrator - Enable from WinRE

I managed to boot into safe mode today, but when i typed 'regedit' in start menu search box, nothing came out as a result.

See if you may be able to open it directly at C:\Windows\regedit instead.

It works from there. But before doing anything I should say that im getting some error every time I log in with safe mode, I dont know if it changes anything but it goes like this : "C:/Windows/system32/config/systemprofile/Desktop refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network."
And could you explain me what am I excatly doing by changing those sid keys, since i dont want to mess up something and dont have a restore point after, since all my restore points somehow got deleted.
