Windows 7 login error message: The User Profile Service failed the log

I tried to login last night and got the error message. I have rebooted, tried to enter safe mode using F8, tried to use the Windows 7 disk, and tried pressing ctrl/alt/delete. Nothing will let me past the login screen. Any suggestions? I have tried many of the ones I found many of the ones on the internet to no avail.
