Windows 7: Windows fails to log on to my admin account.

Windows fails to log on to my admin account.

Every time I try to log into my (only) account on windows seven I get this error message:
Code:
The user profile service failed the logon.

User profile cannot be loaded.
If I log into safe mode and perform a net user username /del will windows ask me to create a new account next time I boot the computer?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Are you logged in as a user with admin rights?

It is possible that since it wont let you create a new account; that something either in the registry or elsewhere could have gotten corrupted somehow. I might consider trying to do a system restore off the windows disc if you have that available; as if you followed the steps in that tutorial completely and it still wont let you create a account then you might just have to do a system restore or repair if it will let you.

Well, a system restore isn't really an option but I will try a startup repair.

Okay, startup repair didn't detect any problem and system restore doesn't have any restore points so that's not going to work.

Well if it comes down to it you may have to do a clean install using the link in my signature that says clean install.

So, I recreated my account and my home folder, but it still wont log in...
Do I REALLY need to fresh install because I would really rather not.
Essentially net user will create a new account but it won't log in properly(And also doesn't add a registry key) and I can't access manage accounts in the control panel. Is the logon service broken or...?

Pretty basic question (I think). Is the built-in administrator's account exactly the same as a manually created local administrator's account privilege wise? Or does the built-in possess inherently elevated privileges? I have googled around, however, I can't find a clear answer for this. ...
