Windows 7: Able to Make Users, but not Profiles

Able to Make Users, but not Profiles

I tried to make a second admin account with my main account, which is an admin, for testing purposes and when I try to sign in, whether I set a password or not, it says, "User Profile Service service Failed
User Profile Cannot Be Loaded" I've made multiple accounts, standard and admin. None of them will sign in.

There is no folder under "Users" that has the same name, and I tried looking in regedit and only found the main profile I use. I am under the impression that the profile service is supposed to create a new folder once the new user signs in, but I cannot sign in as new users. I tried making an account using the true admin login, but clicking on the link to manage other users does nothing under this username; not even a single process comes up. In addition, Admin's desktop is blank, Admin's search feature in the start menu doesn't work, and I get an error message that says it has trouble loading the temp profile.

I also tried running the startup disk,went into the cmd, and used the command "sfc /scannow." It said to reboot and run sfc again, so I logged into my normal profile and ran the same command in an admin level cmd, only to have it come up clean. I am out of ideas, and I don't want to have to perform a reinstall. Any thoughts?

I was not able to find a regkey in ProfileList with .bak attached. I resolved the issue by performing an upgrade install off of the Win7 DVD while in my Windows session.
