Windows 7: User Profile Service Failed the Login.

11 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
User Profile Service Failed the Login.

Hello, Everytime I try to login to an account, I get a message saying User Profile Service Failed the Login. I know this is a common problem and there are many answers on the internet, but none seem to apply here. Every article mentions going through a number of folders till you reach ProfileList in Registry Editor. Then your are to change file extensions, etc. Problem is the user doesn't even show up in Registry Editor. I still have access to my administrator account (this account shows up in the Registry Editor, but it's the only one), but any new account I make, including actviating the guest account, seems to suffer from this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
