Windows 7: user logon failed

04 Jul 2010   #1

windows 7 64 bit Ultimate
user logon failed

I'm using a new PC with windows 7 home. I logon as admin with no password. Just tried to set up a new user account and it does this but when I try to logon with this new user account I get the message "The user Profile Service sevice failed the logon"

I've tried new accounts with and without passwords as well as trying a password for admin as well...any ideas?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with SP1

I had this happen to me, and I am the admin on my PC. It said that it could not find my account profile and logged me into a temporary account. I thought all my stuff was lost, but when I restarted and logged in again I was able to login successfully.

My pc starts ok and if I set a password for admin it prompts me then starts up ok when I enter the password, but when I set up a new user account it creates it but then can't open it.

Windows 7 64 bit

A friend had this problem, and apparently so do I. When I try to create a new user account, it won't add it to the "linked" user account list - just the administrator account can be seen here. Only the administrator account can be accessed by a password or otherwise, no other accounts can have passwords, but the guest account was accessible with no password. Somehow I even ended up with a "public" account I never set up.
I have tried all kinds of ways to go into user accounts, close, reopen, close, reopen, reopen, but none of it gets logged into a properly "linked" user account list. I even created a new file under "user accounts" for the new users, but the system fails to read its profile or even acknowledge it, and just gives me the following message, when I try to enter all password protected "user" accounts other than administrator:
"The User Logon Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be located".

The user profile failed to logon?
The above is the message on my pc for my own user profile. I have other family members logging on ok as I am on one of their accounts now. I can clearly access internet gmail work (sadly) from here but not my account on the pc. Big concern also is that I am the administrator? What do I do?
