    Default [Solved] User Profile Service notification on my computer!

    Hi all,

    My computer was working fine last night but when I came to log on to my normal user account this morning I am getting this message below and i can't get any further!

    "The User Profile Service service failed the Logon.
    User profile cannot be loaded".

    I had already created another user account with administrator powers so that I could always get on to my computer and I have used this today by taking the password off my normal user account thinking that was the problem but unfortunately it wasn't! I have tried switching the computer off and on again but to no avail.

    I would really appreciate some help on this matter please.

    Hi there,

    It's not unusual to get a corrupt user account.
    This can happen for a variety of reasons.
    Have you read the following links?
    They should help explain things and offer advice on fixing things.

    You receive a "The User Profile Service failed the logon” error message
