Windows 7: User Profile Service won't start

Right now I'm sitting at the desktop of the main account. There really wasn't anything that was changed with the partial repair process.

Is the desktop back to normal ? Or you logged in as a temp user ?

It's not back to normal. It's still got all the same problems that I've been having. Nothing changed.

Can you login to the builtin Administrator account which is a hidden account ?

Click on type cmd in the Search programs and files box . Right click on CMD under Programs (1) choose Run as administrator . Click yes on the UAC and command prompt will open to path C:\Windows\System32>_

Type in

net user administrator /active:yes


press [ENTER]

Restart the PC . Click on COMPUTER go to C:\Users\<youraccountname> right click and choose Rename and add .old and the end and open up registry
Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Software
Microsoft
Windows NT
CurrentVersion
ProfileList
Delete the SID Key that goes with the account . Restart and recreate the account from user accounts in control panel under the built in administrator account . Once you recreate the new account log off from the administrator account and log in with the new account created . To recreate the Sid key .

First, I had already renamed the user through the wmic command earlier in the thread, and the administrator account was already activated. So, I went and deleted the SID and restarted.

First, the account is still listed when I get to the logon screen. Second, when I log into the admin account I still can't access the control panel or anything like any other accounts that I've tried to create. Third, after trying to log back into the account that's still there, I'm guessing since I deleted the SID key, I no longer can access the command prompt or anything on that account, either. It looks like the computer is not making any SIDs at all when a new account is logged in. But, now I can't even do anything through the command prompt, so I think my only real option is to go with a clean install.

A SID only gets created once the user account name logs in . Looks like our best bet is to do a clean install ? Do you have a Windows 7 installation disc ?

I can log into all of those accounts. It's just that an SID isn't created when it should be.

But yes, I have an install disk.

Thanks. I was using Brink's guide, but that one you just linked looks like it has different information I can use.

It shows you how you could get a clean installation without the OEM bloatware . Use the key that is underneath the laptop as it says in the tutorial created by Greg .
