When I try to login, I get the following error message:"The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in.User profile cannot be loaded."I am literally unable to use my HP Envy laptop, which is running Windows 10, because of this. I do not even know how to get into safe mode. Though I haven't found safe mode yet, I was able to access system diagnostics via Escape (while rebooting). I tried to do a system restore, but it said I had errors on my hard drive and made me check and fix those errors.Next I tried Recovery Manager. But this just gives me a blue screen. Nothing comes up.
I occasionally use the Hidden Administrator account for security problems, stubborn undeletable files, etc. Question is can I use the User Profile from my W10 install on the Hidden Administrator? If yes, how?
I just tried to log in to my Admin account and got the error "The user profile service failed the sign-in. User profile service cannot be loaded".I can log in to my user account and do admin tasks when prompted by UAC. SFC /SCANNOW shows no errors and CHKDSK shows no errors.I did a system restore at boot and can now enter the admin account but it has several access errors. I changed another user account to an admin account and that works. However, if I create a new admin account, I get the same error "The user profile service failed the sign-in. User profile service cannot be loaded".
I'm unsure how to proceed from here. Should I do an in place repair install or is there another fix? The fundamental problem is I can't create a new working admin account.
I am running Windows 10 onmy HP Pavillion. I upgraded from Windows 7 around a month ago. Recently I was running a disk battery calibration check and after I restarted from that I get the message when I login that the "User Profile Failed the Logon. User Profile Cannot Be Loaded". From everything I have seen online it sounds the best method is to login under safe mode as an admin and either create a new user profile or repair the current one.
Now the problem is when I go to advanced startup options and select safe mode, it starts up but then asks me to login using one of my two accounts. Neither is the administrator as this doesn't show up for me. The current account that I am getting error obviously won't work under safe mode and the other account I don't remember the password. I inserted a travel/jump drive to try and change the PW on this but it wouldn't work. So basically I have no way of getting to start it up as an administrator. The local PC place said WIndows 10 has had known issues with this. However I had this problem happen with Windows 7 too so I am not sure.
Believe I have a corrupt user profile as newly installed apps not appearing in desktop programs menu, so decided to create two new profiles one final and one temporary, using the copy to procedure built into Windows, but used Windows enable app to allow copy to to work.....got an error message at the last step with a pop up windo telling Windows could not delete the folder..
I have 6 user profiles on my Windows 10: One is 72.1GB in size, another is 39.0GB in size, one has a ? mark, one is 58.2GB and one is 11.4GB. The smallest one is the Default Profile at 2.12MB. Why my user profiles so enormous?
I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 using the free upgrade. Initially during the upgrade and configuration, I was using my account or profile. However, didn't see my wife's account at login. After install and setup was complete, I was updating a few programs out of date due to the upgrade, restarted, and at login only my wife's account was present. No option for me to login. I looked in the Settings/Accounts/Family & Other users and there isn't anyone else listed except her.
I still have a file under users on the C drive but not sure how to fix this without having to create a new account. There is also a profile for my account under System Properties/ User Profiles. During initial setup when I was logged in, my desktop setting were exactly how they were with Win 7. So, no clue as to why my login profile is no longer available for login or user switching.
I get an error "The user profile control failed at login"when trying to login for the first time to a newly added family account. I accept the invitation from another computer but get the error when trying to switch to the new profile. This account runs fine on another computer. I deleted this account from this computer using Windows 10 because windows mail stopped working. Now I can not reinstall the profile.
I am currently setting up an image for a small business. The image is Windows 10. I have the admin profile all set up the way I want the other profiles to look, after sysprep has been ran and the oobe crap has worked.how do I get the standard default profile to look the way I have my admin profile? I have a custom background with the company logo, a few changes to the start menu and taskbars, and some desktop shortcuts.
Upgraded to W10 from W7 several months ago now and activated and used only the built-in Administrator account. Which is what I have done for many years now to stop the UAC popups.
However, I have soon discovered this Administrator account, while blocking the UAC popups has some serious limitations. Like cannot run Edge or any of the Metro Apps. Yes, I have tried the workarounds but they too have issues.
So how can I transferred all my settings for my programs and windows to another local username?
I deleted my account on accident and now my start button won't work. How do I restore it? And I just updated it to window 10 yesterday and today it said that I was logged in as a temporary account so I tried fixing it but deleted my account what to do? I think I deleted my administrator account.
I had 2 adult local accounts and 2 kids local accounts. I also have the 1 Microsoft account.
I don't want to use the Microsoft account signin on my laptop I want to use my local.
Is there a way to assign the existing local kids accounts to family without having to create new ones ? The kids are worried that if I do this they will lose their existing apps/game settings on the local accounts.
I've got two computers running windows 7. Both have an administrator account and a standard user account. The computer I use for gaming has a third account for gaming (I have some older games that don't like the aero-peak feature so the gaming account uses a plain desktop, no features.)
All these accounts use the same email address.
All these accounts will also use just the one Microsoft account.
My question is, when I upgrade to windows 10, will I be able to create a similar set-up for the user accounts, ie 5 different accounts, but only one email address and one Microsoft account? I've read that windows wants an email address to create a new account, is it going to tell me "that email address/Microsoft account has already been used?"
I am planning to upgrade to windows 10 by doing a clean install and starting from scratch, so I'm not worried about whether or not the existing accounts will transfer over.
My windows (hotmail) account was recently hacked, and is irretrievable. I have created a new windows account, but my windows 10 user is associated with that old account that I no longer have access to.
I had hoped Windows 10 corrected the "rename user account" function but nope. I renamed a User Account due to conflict on the LAN [same name, same spelling] and sure enough, now I have two names for the account, one a slightly hidden original name, and permissions issues. To rid it, I will create an all new Administrator account, move everything over, and demolish the old. How to do? the docs/files are easy... the settings for apps etc are not as I recall
When one of my family members goes to sign in, it says "preparing windows." Then, once they are logged in, it says "You've been signed in with a temporary profile. You can't access your files, and files created in this profile will be deleted when you sign out. To fix this, sign out and try signing in later." The problem is still persisting a day later. Aif I turned off sync settings, would that prevent this from happening?
I notice in my User Accounts I have the same User Name twice. Actually it is the same email address twice. Both are administrators under Group. can I remove one of those without having my computer going into meltdown.
I have 2 accounts, one admin...and one standard (as recommended by Microsoft) Can I link them both to the same Hotmail (outlook) email?
(Standard account used daily...admin account rarely used and there for security I currently have each linked to a different email account but since the admin account is rarely used I'm worried that the email account associated with it might get killed off because of lack of use. If you want to be super kind....is it easy to change the email that a user account is linked to?)
After I installed Windows 10, I created a Microsoft online account to see what it was like. During the process, it changed the name on my local Windows 10 user account. I used Control Panel to go to Users, but there seemed to be no way to change the name back to the original. It's the only account on the computer. Surely changing the name is possible, but how? Will I have to create a new administrator account and delete the old one?
I have repeatedly tried to get my folders on the disk drive to agree with User Accounts setup in Control Panel.I deleted "owner" and created a Test on the disk with the owners name, "CAG".The "test" file has the correct name on it but User Accounts still has "test" while Control panel has "CAG".How can I get them to be the same?
I currently have Windows 7 on my pc, and I want to upgrade to windows 10 using the included free upgrade. I just wanted to know, since I have different local user accounts, if they will stay separate on windows 10, or are users set up in a different way on windows 10?
While on Win 7 I read that it is more secure to create another User account alongside your Admin one, and use that for day-to-day work. Apparently it stops hackers from gaining control of your machine. However, this caused a problem as I have an 256gb SSD system disk and, I think, the duplication has used up too much space, causing problems with programmes like Dropbox.If I delete the 2nd User account will I reclaim some space? If a programme is mounted on both accounts does it take up twice as much space? And, finally, is the security issue still relevant with Win 10?All my data is stored on other hard drives, so that's not a problem.Only the programmes are duplicated.
