Windows 7: Created user account, unable to login

Created user account, unable to login

Hi,

I created a secondary user account on my PC. When I try to login, it will look like it's logging in, but it just logs back out, returning to the main screen to choose an account to login to.

If I'm logged into my main account, and I switch users and try to login to the newly created secondary account, it logs me out of my main account, and doesn't login to the secondary account, and once again, returns to the main screen to choose an account to login to.

This also happens with the guest account.

In addition, it does not give me the generic error: "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded"

How can I fix this?

Hello Dutch,

If you create a new user account of the same type, will it allow you to fully log on to it?

If so, then you might consider using it instead and copy over anything you want from the old account to the new one.

Hope this may help some.

Interestingly enough, creating an account (with the administrative type) worked.

Though, I wanted to create a separate account for the rest of the family to use, without administrative privileges.

Does creating a new standard user account work?

Unfortunately, no.

Ok, last ditch effort. How does it work afterwards if you were to change the new working administrator account that you just created to be a standard user account.

I tried changing the user account type, but if I change it to a "normal user", it won't login.

Other than using the administrator account, you might see if running a sfc /scannow command may help if a corrupted system file may be at fault, or do a system restore using a restore point dated before this started.

I tried the sfc /scannow but it returned nothing. And I really do not want to mess with a system restore.
