For some reason my computer loads slowly. I log in then black screen with mouse only can be seen. it takes <10 seconds for explorer.exe to appear. I searched for fix and found that it can be fixed by creating new profile. So, I went ahead and created profile. Logged off my current one and find this error when trying to load the new one. "User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded".
I then ran sfc /scannow command in Administrator command prompt. It found few files but was unable to repair them. Unfortunately I cannot open log because I have access denied popping up (was working before).
I am trying to add a second account to my machine and whether I try a Local or Microsoft account, I get the same "User Profile Service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded" error every time I try to sign in for the first time. I've Googled this a bit and it seems everything I've found yet (except one) has been with logging in to existing profiles. For the one that was with a new profile, the solution didn't work.
I tried deleting all files similar to the specified one (file in C:UsersDefaultAppDataLocalMicrosoftVSCommon12.0SQM with name of "sqmdata-####-###-#####.sqm"), but that had no effect. I'm guessing this is because I have VS2013 installed, as this happens with my laptop as well. I don't want to delete my profile, I have important (and large) data in my documents folder that I don't want to lose. I'm guessing this will have to do with messing with the registry, but I don't know where to begin.
The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded. (Window 8)
Today when I tried to use my laptop, I got an error when attempting to log on with my profile. It states:
"The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded."
I am using a different PC right now, of course. I had Googled the error, but none of the solutions (thus far) will work in my predicament. It is a Windows 8 PC, so I cannot access the system BIOS in order to perform a system restore, cause unfortunately, it goes straight to the log on screen(Which is become SOLID BLANK COLOR). I don't have a second profile on the system, either. I can't find any way to access the BIOS, Settings, Admin. Profile, or anything.
(SOLID BLANK COLOR) the back ground image for the log in screen is a solid color and not an actual image, anymore.
I can't access the start menu to open the CMD, because I cannot log into my profile and there is no other profile on the PC, besides Administrator ... Which is, unfortunately, hidden. I cannot make it visible, because I'd have to log in to accomplish such a task ...
The problem is not that I am incompetent and cannot conjure a new profile or complete simple tasks on a computer. My predicament seems to be that I cannot access anything. I need to log onto my profile in order to reach the CMD, or any other settings for that matter. Unless there's some, very well hidden, way to run CMD from the log in screen. I know that there is a minuscule detail that I am overlooking, but I cannot find it.
If there's any way to access CMD, BIOS, or anything at the log in screen.
When I opened mu laptop (I'm using ASUS) = Its going STRAIGHT to the BLANK SOLID Screen and There's that. Nothing.... I cannot find anyway how to log in using safe mode and try anyway boot using f1 or anything....
IMPORTANT Problem: didnt's have a cd Windows 8, just found out this problem, didnt even made another account... and other PC is using win7...
"The Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded."
I've tried going into regedit and altering the user account, however there is not an S-1-5 entry associated with it. This happens every time I create a new user. My admin and other user account work fine.
Computer fails to log-in, get the following message: The User Profile Service failed to the sign-in. User Profile cannot be loaded. Have tried to boot to Safe Mode by pressing F8 repeatedly but cant get to the option.
I built a new PC to be used primarily for gaming purposes, so I installed Windows 8 Pro onto 128GB SSD. I wanted to move my User profile to my HDD, and followed the directions posted here: User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk
After doing this and exiting Audit mode, Windows acted as if I had were installing the OS and wanted a product key. I skipped this step, went through the configuration, but when I used my email for my Windows account, it says that a user is already using that account on my PC. Obviously, because I had been using my computer earlier today. So since it knows there is a user with that account, why can't I access it when I start my computer? A friend of mine says I may have installed Windows twice on accident, but he isn't sure.
Sometimes when I boot Windows 8.1, I get a generic screen that tells me that my profile couldn't be accessed and I now have a temporary profile. I went to the event viewer and it also said that it couldn't find my profile. I am the only user and administrator. Is there a way to make a new user profile AND not loose my files and settings.
You've Been Signed In With A Temporary Profile error In Windows 8 and boy was that a mistake, i went to where it said to go to Regedt32.exe, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionProfileList i found 2 accounts the temporary account and my account, the fourm said to reroute them to the right account so i made the temporary account go to my account and then i restarted the computer it did the exact same thing exept that when i went to user it had replaced my account with another temporary account. Any way to get all of the things i had on my user or is it gone. (BTW i have no restore checkpoint to where i can go back)
Uninstalled AMD software and drivers normally. Installed older or latest AMD software, and it is still there.I have completely uninstalled all AMD software using the AMD cleanup utility. I have installed the previous version 13.12, but the error still appears. Strangely this error was not there prior to installing 14.4, but now it is there using 13.12 even though the AMD cleanup utility was used.So nothing seems to clear this except to uninstall all AMD software using the cleanup utility.When no AMD software is installed there is no error (obviously!).
However, when subsequently installing any AMD graphics software the error returns.
Graphics Card Radeon HD 6450 AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History 14.4, previous 13.12, and all previous Catalyst software for many years. Operating System - Windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro 64-bit.
In this screenshot you can see what pops up every time this new user logs in to our local network domain. The server name is "goodbuddy" on "TRUCKERSREPORT" domain and it seems to be running some kind of setup right at login every time. I don't want to allow this user admin rights for program changes, but i need to make it so an administrator doesn't have to enter their credentials in this every time this user logs into their computer.
This desktop computer came with Windows 8 pre-installed and was updated to 8.1 from the MS free download around a year ago. While updates were automatically downloaded, the settings were not for auto updates. I attempted to install updates a few months ago but got many failures (as did many others I read about) and after installing KB2919355 the desktop was messed up and the missing profile problem was evident. Did a system restore which fixed everything and it has been stable ever since - with no updates installed.
Today after several attempts (and hours) I finally got all the Windows updates installed without failures, However, when any application icon shortcut is selected, the "Missing Profile" message comes up. I am able to start the program from the Program Files folder using the executable file and once started all appears normal. Tried re-creating the shortcuts on the desktop but get the same error message. This applies to Firefox, Thunderbird, Word, etc. Also notice that the pressing the windows key + X does not work but windows + C works as well as windows + R. Those keys and icons all work from the administrator logon so the problem seems isolated to the default user.
After researching the problem I created a new user (while under admin privileges) but no profile was created. When attempting to logon to the new user, the message "The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded." Checked the User folder on the C: drive and the new user was not there.
So, before I give up and re-install windows 8.0 &8.1 ( and have to re-load a bunch of programs).

I do a lot of remote administration after hours and I often login as an admin user into client workstations to fix various issues. One thing that I do to eliminate confusion is to edit the registry of a Win7 machine and change the HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionAuthenticationLogonUILastLoggedOnUser registry value back to the user's username.
That way inattentive users don't keep trying their password with the Admin username when they attempt to login the next day. I see that Windows 8 has the same key, but changing that value doesn't appear to "stick". It appears to be overwritten when you logout/reboot/shutdown. I've also tried deleting the SAM entries in the same key, but that seems to have no effect. I've seen several posts on how to show all users or none on the logon screen, but I'm trying to minimize the changes that end users will experience (complain about). I'm also hoping for a solution that will work with both domain and non-domain joined computers.
my computer had been booting up slowly lately so I decided to try to run diagnostic start up to see if that would fix it. When I did and restarted I click my profile and put it my pin. It just makes me select my profile again and put in my pin in a never ending loop.
I can't seem to get my profile to reliably sync to new devices or when I've tried clean installs on my main system. I have all settings checked to sync and the PCs are all trusted devices. Sometimes it will sync the desktop background and my profile picture, others it may sync some of my explorer settings. Sometimes it may not sync anything at all. My homegroup on any other devices also gets renamed to "winliveid_000" instead of the usual "firstname.lastname@example.org." I've yet to figure out why this happens as well. I've tried deleting the data and trying again, all with the same result.
This has honestly all been an issue ever since I've installed Windows 8 and I'm starting to dislike the profile sync altogether. If it cannot reliably sync my data and all of it, I don't understand it's usefulness. I've also run the account troubleshooting tool, which gives a cryptic message saying "The following settings are turning sync off: Personalization." It gives no further details that I can see or look into and all settings are on. I've taken a look at Windows 8.1 and it seems that you have no choice but to initially use your Microsoft account to sign in, which is troubling. If it cannot be fixed, I may have to delete my synced profile online every time I try to reinstall my main system.
I had a new Windows 8.1 Pro system installed. Was able to logon to it with no problem. The computer name was OWNER. Changed it to what my previous computer was named. Now during startup the Admin logon gives the following message:
The user name or password is incorrect. Try again.
When I click on 'OK' I'm presented with a signon screen with Admin as the user name. No password that I enter works. When I lookup the signon accounts Admin is NOT one of them.
Listed the user accounts and found the following item for Admin:
A few days ago my laptop started logging me into a temporary profile, when I log on 2 mine it says preparing windows for a while and then I actually log in and all my setting have been changed and also my files deleted. It says "You can't access your files, and files created in this profile will be deleted when you sign out..and my files have been deleted all of them it shows on the windows 8_OS(C space meter thing. I've tried rebooting and everything but nothing. My admin user account has also been deleted. I've literally tried everything on the internet like even going to the System 32 to select SAM file but it always says the SAM file is in use. My whole life and memories are all on my laptop I have a lenovo G580.
