Preferred Solution: An issue with user logins

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Administrator account has permission to access files from other users. Just go to the C:/Users section or whatever.

I have a computer that I do not want any other user to be able to login into the computer. We created a user login with limited access, but if someone else logs in with their username, then the system will be able to access the internet and we want to limit the amount of access. If I can figure a way to make sure only a few logins can work on this machine, then I can prevent others from using their logins and access the internet.

I am using WIN XP and I want to divide my HDD space up for another user I can add him as a user but when he logs in and goes to D drive he can t install anything without the administrator password What I want it to do if possible is make it act like it s separate computers where I log in and go to C drive and he logs in and it takes him directly to D drive with NO access to my C drive But he has rights to install whatever he wants on his part of the drive with out administrator password Because when he installs something incorrectly or downloads something it affects all my things and I end up reformatting about every two weeks and losing alot of things Not to mention the time it takes to re do everything And also if possible where I can access BOTH C and D drives but he can only access D Is this a dual boot situation Can WIN XP be instaled on both partitions without interfering with one another or changing the settings of each other in otherwords will they run independent of each other Any help will be appreciated nbsp

A:2 separate user logins.....

Yes, you can install multiple copies of windows xp on the same computer. I don't know about hard drive access in windows xp though. Maybe its about the quotas in NTFS or the administrative rules... etc. Perhaps someone else may answer that question.

How do I setup remote login that would allow 3 or 4 people to login to the same computer.

Each person would have their own Windows User Account name, with different privileges.

I don't know what software could do this. Could I please have some recommendations? The computer being connected to would be Windows 7, and there is no special network equipment besides a consumer router.

This is a very small business and keeping costs under control is important. Thank You for any help you can provide.

If it is possible to reconfigure WinXP (home or Pro) so there is only a single user, the "all-powerful" one, how is that done? I am the only real user, and my new machine has very little stuff on it, all replacable. I see that XP has the "Administrator" or "Owner" mode, which surely resembles what I intend to have as the sole and single subset of the OS. It also has "default user", and perhaps others, which were present when purchased. I have not created nor configured any of those modes or users.

So the basic questions are:
Is it acceptable to remove all those other "modes", leaving only the "Admin" mode?

If so, then may that mode be renamed?

Recognizing references to hacker-protection, are there other factors to consider?

Blessed Be;

A:XP - Single-user. Remove other logins?

Default User should have the administrative powers. You should be able to remove the other users, and then, if you get a welcome screen and you don't want it, you can change the way you log on under "users" in the Control Panel. Be careful not to delete all users with Admin priveleges!

suddenly, my desktop files gone, my document files gone, and when I try to login it shows something like "you are logged in temporarily". But I notice that I can find my desktop files and my document files in C:/users/myuseraccountname

I have noticed that when a user logon's on to a computer which has symantec antivirus v 10.1.4 installed using the managed setup from the server.

For some reason the scan starts automatically in the background. How does one stop that scan?

As it really slows down the users computer.


A:Automatic Scan starts when user logins into the computer

I don't know how to stop it (other than using Task Manager to kill the process) but suggest to change the option to start it. My guess is that there is an option set to always scan on boot or to always scan whenever updates have been installed (which seems to average more than once a day).

Typing this super quick. As I'm sure, the stupid popup will appear again. When trying to access any websites, a message comes up. It isn't an error message or the "unresponsive script" message. It is different. It has lots of code on it. Probably the url of what it's trying to access. This would normally happen in the background, and the user shouldn't see it.
I googled part of the message, and it mentioned something about a user agent...whatever that is. I just want the message(s) to stop popping up! Any help is much appreciated.
Here is a screenshot of what I'm seeing:

A:Firefox Issue - Constant popup - User agent issue?

User agent info is identifying information about your browser, system, and region plus a unique identifier that your browser sends to websites it visits. I would try resetting your browser if you don't have settings you are worried about losing by doing that.

This morning when I turned on my computer I got a message something like "The User profile service failed the logon." There were no other options so I had to put my computer in safe mode. In the windows help it suggested creating a new user account and copying my stuff but whenever I tried to click "Manage another account" nothing happened. I tried everything I could think of until out of desperation I went into "Configure advanced user profile properties" and deleted the account. After this I was able to click on "Manage another account," both of these are in "User Accounts" from the control panel. I copied most of my stuff but I still lost some things like all my firefox bookmarks. My main concern is why this happened so it doesn't happen again. Any ideas what caused this?

Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

A:sluggish logins


Are you still getting this problem? If so, lets take a look at a log first:

go to , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
Also, it may be just that many are logging in, as it may be peak times when you're on.

When the Win 10 login page opens, my picture is there, but below it it says (approximately) "wrong password". In the lower left corner of the login screen two small boxes appear, one with just my name and a second one containing "myname at" (my Microsoft account). When I click on the second box, the space below my picture changes to ask for my PIN, and when I enter that, Windows proceeds to open.
How can I get rid of the false login? I can't find any location where I see two users, or where I can change anything.
P.S. Anyone know how I can get a screenshot of the login screen? I have all sorts of screenshot capability once Windows opens, but nothing evident when just the login screen is open. Thanks for your help.

Hi all I have a desktop multiplier (actually a few installed now) from Ncomputing. Part of getting it to work properly has been to have 4 different windows user accounts (user1, user2 etc). The initial login is Netware then of course the windows login. My question is , is there a way to limit user1 to only one login and user2 to only one login etc? (reg hack maybe). This is needed so firefox, office etc work properly (meaning if two students both login as user1 things break).

Thanks in advance.

Well i Googled and found this. I have never tried it.

Windows 2000/XP: Keeping a record of Windows user login attempts
Much more common in our labs are standalone (not part of a domain) Windows 2000 and Windows XP computers. The procedure for these computers (based on "Help and Support Center" from Windows XP):
Log on as an administrator
Click Start, click Run, type mmc /a (note the space between mmc and /a), and then click OK.
On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in, and then click Add.
Under Snap-in, click Group Policy, and then click Add.
In Select Group Policy Object, click Local Computer, click Finish, click Close, and then click OK.
At this point, you might want to save this console for further use. Note you can add multiple snap-in and manage multiple computers from this console. I find it rather useful myself.
On the left hand side, navigate to Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Audit Policy
On the right hand side, double-click "Audit Logon Events"
Check the boxes for Success and Failure, click OK
You can close the Microsoft Management Console, though you might want to snoop through the other possible settings first.
Note that if your computer is part of a domain, the settings for the domain take precedence over those for the local computer, so you won't be able to set this yourself -- discuss it with your friendly domain administrator

We have a problem that we'd like to keep in-house and by that I mean not involving the network admin at this point and what this problem is where we have employees that are claiming hours worked when we know that that person wasn't actually working. Is ther a way in XP to read logs or install a program that would allow us to see when these users are logging onto their machines. I have admin rights to these machines if that helps. I really don't want to get anyone in trouble so I don't want to involve the network admin but I'm not sure of another way to do this.

I just wondered what people thought about it on here. Obviously I dont want to slow the system down nor do i want to download anything that can do damage. So I just wondered whether people think its worth doing? and if so, wheres best to do it from? I found some quite nice looking themes by just google searching for "Xp themes"



A:XP Logins/Themes

Go to Control Panel > Display > Themes

If you want to download other themes from Microsoft, then just find an offical theme, download it, and open the exe. It will install automatically.

If you want to use aftermarket theme, you will probably need to patch up "uxtheme.dll" which is explained how to do here. After you patch the file, you can find lots of themes at places like or

There are also programs you can use like WindowBlinds or LiteStep, but they cost money.

I'm not good with computers, and recently I got a new laptop. I've let a few of my friends on it when I'm around, not necessarily paying attention, and one of them must have messed with it. Before, whenever I opened it it came out of sleep mode into a login screen, so that only I could get on it. Now, Whenever I open it or even restart it, it goes right to my desktop, no password required. I messed around in the control panel trying to find the problem, I created a new password and on my power options it even says a password requirement is on, so I don't know what the problem is. How can I get my laptop to start forcing logins again?

Using MSDE2000. Need a way to list or display all currently logged in users to the SQL database being hosted by MSDE2000. Perhaps a utility program.

An analog would be for Windows server, there's a Resource Kit utility called NetWatch -- it displays all users currently accessing shares from the server. Handy to know who is logged in and accessing the server at any time.

A:SQL Utility For Logins

There is a web based utility that is pretty awesome called SQL Web Data Administrator. It is web based, has it's own web server if you don't have IIS and can manage multiple databases.

I have also seen an ASP script that displays logged in users.

There was an error on startup so I figured I could just startup Ubuntu and copy the files from there.
This was not the case, the Users folder was completely empty like there were no profiles.
I then proceeded to try in Win7 and Win8, neither of which helped.
I know for a fact that the files still exist, but they aren't visible.
I know because they are still taking up space.
So I decided to fix the boot problem, which I did.

Now there is another problem. When I go to logon I get this error: "The group policy client service failed the logon."

I read some stuff online that says that I should activate the hidden admin profile.
I did that and when I log into it it says:

Your user profile was not loaded correctly!
You have been logged on with the default profile for the system. Please see the event log for details or contact your administrator.

I have hit a brick wall with this, is there some kind of software I can buy to just recover the data?

You could take the hard drive out and put it into another desktop with admin account, and use the tutorial here to take control of the folders and files : Context Menu - Take Ownership

Short of losing everything, if the files are hidden then show hidden files and folders from the view tab at the top of any explorer window, also show system folders and files.

My user folder somehow isn't in the user\ folder anymore. It's in my desktop folder and says system folder. I can still access with with C:\users\sawah, but in the navigation pane it's listed by itself. I'm not sure which steps to do to get it back to where it's supposed to be.

Can I backup my stuff and remake it? Can I just copy it back in and delete the one that's moved? Thanks for any help.

Update: If I try to make a new user folder with the same name, it says their already is one.

A:User Folder Issue

I am a little confused, by your post..
This is what I am getting from it..(please correct me if I am wrong)

Your folder with your name is not in the Users folder under the C: drive.. It is on the desktop. But you are able to still access it.

First thing I would check is that is that folder on the desktop a shortcut to your User folder?? (is there a Little arrow by it if there is you can delete it)

I tried coping my User Folder to the Desktop and I am unable to do so.. So my guess is that it is most likely a shortcut...(Check your User folder under C: and see if your User name is there..)

Hope this Helps..and Happy Holidays..

Have you simply tried hitting enter when it asks for a password?

If you did or that doesn't work, repair install is best. There are ways to set a password with Linux-based Live disks, but that could be more troublesome then it's worth.

Repair Install

Very important for security and sharing ability reasons to always set passwords on administrator accounts. If you want Windows to boot up to desktop still without you entering the password, use netplwiz in the start menu search box.

Hey all, I couldn't find a thread specifically regarding this, sorry if there is already one, a link to it will suffice instead of wasting time answering.

Anyway, I set up a new Thunderbolt iMac with Windows 7 ONLY, and for some reason it is only recognizing one user account. There are 3 in total set up on the machine, and although I know the passwords for each it says the user name or password is incorrect.

I have tried resetting the passwords from the account that works, and it still does the same thing.

I set up exactly the same system on a seperate identical iMac, and it hasn't given me any trouble at all.

I'm really stumped and can't seem to find anything on google about this specific problem...

So i did a clean install of XP Pro over XP Home. Problem is that all my old docs and settings are now in the old folder from XP home and XP pro has created a new account that didn't link to my old account folder. The old account folder is C:\Docs and Sets\Owner and i've linked one of my new user accounts to that folder with regedit.

Problem is, the desktop, cookies, favorites folders are all inaccessible except to the user Owner. With the new install I don't have a user owner therefore am unable to even access the folders with any account. I tried creating a new user "owner" but that didn't work either.

How can I remove these restrictions to make those folders public and then I'll be able to just link a new account to that folder without any problems.

The owner account usually goes by administrator, doesn't it? Any time I want my old my documents file say from '98, I just drag and drop them into my new my documents folder.

@ work we use a combination of Vista & XP pro in a Server 2003 AD environment. While connected to the network, a pc/laptop can have unlimited users logging into it (ex: conference room pc). When outside the network, only the last three users to log in (while connected to the network) are able to actually log on through XP's domain logon screen (Username, Password, Domian).

Is there a registry setting that can increase this user limit?

I have a laptop with (5) users that connect to the internet w/ an EVDO card then VPN back into our network, and I need to be able to have all (5) logon to the computer. Right now only the three most recent to log on while the laptop was connected directly to the companies domain are recognized.

My computer had a virus, and I believe AVG cleaned up most of it. However, one of the users (where the virus was installed), cannot connect to the internet. However, another user on the same computer can connect just fine. So I assume the virus changed something in the settings.

I tried doing a system restore. I tried doing a DNS flush. I tried doing a Winsock reset. But nothing seems to help. It looks like it has an IP address, but it just can't get to the internet for some reason. Not only the browser, but other programs as well cannot access the internet with this user.

Any ideas on how to get the internet connection going again? Thanks for any help.

Question for you!

I have an issue with a Dell Optiplex 360 running windows XP sp3

I turn on the PC and when I login the password is accepted but then almost immediately the machine logs me out within a second or two and returns me to the login page.

I tried running repair on XP 3 times thinking there was a file that was corrupted but no joy.
I also tried to start up in safe mode and the same thing happened both to the user account and the Administrator account which hasn't got a password set.
My user account is an administrator account!
Help please!

Hey. If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it! The problem is with a Windows 2000 PC.

I accidentally deleted a username i was currently logged in as. it happened because i was deleting old user names on an office PC. i can log in as administrator and see the user's files under documents and settings/*user*, but those files are only that user's "My Documents". I am mainly concerned with accessing email and ACT! files stored somewhere on the hard drive specifically for that user name. however, i need to do it from the administrator login because the said username is deleted. i tried re-creating the username just through the "Users" tool in the control panel, but that didn't work. any suggestions?

hi, this is about an HP laptop, Win XP Pro, all updated etc.

There are 2 admin accounts, both are mine, I have all the admin passwords and password to one of the limited accounts. One is named Administrator, other is my name.

One limited acct has no password. Other is private for the babysitter and I don't have her pw.

Problem - every software update I do - eg getting new Adobe Acrobat, update Java, Spybot etc - seems like it does not update any other accounts. Not sure about Windows updates.

Shouldn't I as admin be able to update software on every account? It ends up being a security issue because my antivirus/firewall/spyware/media player is as good as possible on my own account but not the babysitter's or the others. Is there some setting I should change? Does it matter which administrator account I'm logged on to when I try to do an upgrade?

Thank you!

A:user accounts issue

It's probably due to both accounts being Admin. If you change the babysitters to a user account it should update both accounts. You can still delegate what the babysitter has access to but I would change hers to user for situations like this in the future. I maybe wrong but I think this will solve your problem.

How many programs start up with your PC?
Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete or Ctrl+Shift+Esc at the same time to bring up the Task Manager.

First right click on the icons in the system tray(or double left click to open)and try to access the "settings", "preferences" or "options" of each of the applications that you don't want to start when the computer boots up. There should be an option labeled "Start upon Windows Startup". Make sure that option is unchecked.
If there is no option, download and install
CodeStuff Starter to manage your startup programs
(if you get the .zip file from the authors site it requires no installation)
Launch the program and uncheck any program that you don't want to load/run at startup.
If you later change your mind, replace the checkmark.
It's very easy to search within the program too!

I've been trying off and on to create an additional user account for my fian??e for a while. Each time I create it and log into the account, just after logging in the mouse pointer freezes and the boot seems to be totally frozen. I can CTRL+ALT+DEL and bring up my task manager, and then the pointer works again. When moving that window around, it leaves a trail like ghost imaging. If I hover over the task bar, I get an hourglass. I can't open anything on the desktop. Basically, the profile is pretty useless. I've noticed this same issue with my guest account. My admin and personal account (another admin) works fine. If I try to make a second account either admin or limited, the issue still presents itself. I'm not quite sure why this happens, and so I've come to this forum for answers.

I have three user accounts on my pc. Mine, plus two family memebers. The family members accounts have experienced freezing now and then with their accounts but I have not had any freezing with mine.

I should note that they only use their accounts for checking email and surfing the web.

One my account I also use the web/email along with Adobe Elements, Dreamweaver, and Corel PSP X2. No freezing issues here.

The other users are starting to think they repel technology.

Hi billr,

I think these family members would need to take note of exactly what they were doing right before the "freezing". Also, does a particular program stop responding or does Windows as a whole seem to freeze? How do you recover, by ending the program using task manager, shutting down PC etc? Do you use the same email program as they use? I guess i am saying a lot more info is needed before we could even hazzard a guess at what might be wrong!

I hope you can help me on this, as I cannot find a solution elsewhere. A few days ago I start receiving this error message when logging to Vista: "C:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\[COLOR=#3676a2! important][COLOR=#3676a2! important]Desktop[/COLOR][/COLOR] refers to a location that is unavailable."
Whenever I recieve it, most of the apps did not worked, i.e. Itunes brought a message that I did not have Admin rights.
I tried restoring sytem to several points and times but it did not helped.
The failure is intermitent, meaning that if I reboot several times, in one of those it opens normally and I can work without issues.
Doing some digging/trial&error, I identified this must be related to user account, since if I log off and long again even with the same account it works perfect again.

First of all I would highly recommend using a different browser; Ideally Google Chrome as it is much faster and more secure than IE
Windows Laptops are set up like this so that there is a separation of permissions, When in Administrator mode you can use a lot more functions
on your computer which makes it a lot easier to use, however this comes with the downfall that it can be a lot easier to do something wrong and cause
errors on your computer.

A:XP User Name Change Issue -- Please Help!


First, the problem with simply changing the local username on an XP PC is that this doesn't change the references to named folders in C:\Documents and Settings so you'll still be saving files to folders named with the previous username.

The right way to set up your environment would be to ADD your XP PC to your Server 2003 domain (i.e. create a computer account). Likewise, you should add a domain USER account on your server. In this scenario, you should be able to login to the DOMAIN rather than to a user account configured on your local PC.

Simply synching the usernames and passwords on both the server and workstation(s) only works if you're setting up a "Workgroup" environment - which is similar to setting up home networking between multiple XP or Vista clients on the same home network.

This computer is running Vista Home and it was completely bogged down with viruses/spyware. i've gotten rid of all them, but it started always relaoding the last known working configuration on every restart. I shut down system restore so I could finish the cleaning without having to reload all the cleaning programs every time. When I start it tells me the user profile cannot load and a temporary profile has been loaded. I followed all the advice in this thread:

The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded. - Vista Forums

When I did this, the user profile wouldn't load at all, so I went into safe mode and changed it back to the original configuration (put the .bak back where it was). Now I'm back at square one. Any ideas?

I screwed up Big Here is what happened Last week I get a call I work on a helpdesk from a user that is reporting she is missing files from her My Documents folder Having seen a similar profile issue please help User - call a while back where somehow a user s ProfileImagePath in HKEY LOCAL MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows NT CurrentVersion ProfileList lt SID gt was pointed to a folder besides C Documents and Settings lt username gt I took a look I found entries on HKEY LOCAL MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows NT CurrentVersion ProfileList with the same User profile issue - please help SID but one ended in bak I see that the bak version of the ProfileImagePath key is pointing at C D amp S lt her username gt and the non-bak entry is pointing at C D amp S temp With her signed in the My Documents folder is also currently pointing at the temp folder instead of her username folder Her files are intact but her profile is just pointing at the wrong place I decide to try what I think at the time is a clever fix - I will switch the values from the ProfileImagePath keys so that when she reboots and signs back in her My Documents will point to the folder with her correct files Mistake obviously is not immediately copying her files to a network share something we try to hammer into everyone s head as much as possible Mistake is trying to fix from the registry st instead of trying simpler fixes Anyway I make the change and have her reboot In the registry the bak entry is now gone Her My Docs still points to C D amp S temp AND here s the real kicker the C D amp S lt her username gt folder is gone completely Aside from the obvious like pointing out I should never have touched the registry in the first place is there anything I can do to get her files back Side question - If her true profile never got pointed back at the correct folder why would XP delete the C D amp S lt her username gt folder when she rebooted and signed back in nbsp

Hi all,
I have a particularly troublesome department management who blatantly disregards company policy regarding using other employee's logins, especially when it comes to hiring new staff.
Whilst I can throw the security guidelines at her, does the breach anything more meaningful, such as the Data Privacy Act?

I went on a downloading spree this week. I went from 51% free space to 39%. I think i installed somekind of virus. Yesterday i went to my fantasy site and my password didnt work. Today i went to yahoo mail and it didnt work. i think i got somekind of backdoor virus or something like that. I tried three seperate accounts for yahoo mail. All of them didnt work. I'm scared.

A:Virus infecting my logins

go to , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip it and make sure it is unzipped & placed into it's own folder, not a temporary folder. Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.

Hey all,

I work at a school and since all the staff came back yesterday, we have had multiple complaints about not being able to log in on the computers still running XP. The simple solution seems to be changing the PC to workgroup, resetting, and changing back to the school domain, but once this happens the person loses all their personalised folders and outlook settings.

Is there another way to solve this?

Appreciate any / all help. Thanks.

A:XP Forgetting Domain Logins

They are not lost. They are under a profile not being used is all.
Look under documents and settings.
You will see username.domainname
Figure out which is the new profile and which is the old.
Copy the contents of the old to the new are you are back to before the workgroup change.

Did someone delete the computers out of Active Directory?
Next time this happens confirm the computer exists in AD before doing anything.

This sounds like a really silly question, but I was asked this by a client, and I amazed myself that I didn't know the answer...

I have a Windows XP SP2 machine, on a 2003 domain, and I want to know who has logged into it, and when. In other words, a log of logons.

My first thought was the Event Logs, but I can't see anything there that tells me what I want.

Is there a simple "built-in" (i.e. no additional programs) way to tell this? Also, to be useful for me in this case, it must work to tell me what *already* happened (i.e. no steps required to enable the logging), otherwise I won't be able to see the login that happened last week.

Thanks in advance.

I'm hoping someone can help me with this - I'm a real nontechie.

Yesterday I couldn't get into my hosting site's chat and someone suggested I delete all cookies and clear my browser. This I did, through Internet Tools, and it didn't help - the next suggestion was to use a different browser from IE. But that's not really what I'm asking about.

Since I deleted the cookies and browsing history, every time I want to go onto one of my regular sites I am asked to enter my ID and password, even though I tick the box saying I want to stay signed in.

Obviously I've inadvertently deleted something I shouldn't. Would anyone have an idea what this could be?

Thanks in advance for any comments.

A:[SOLVED] Problem with logins

When you deleted history you also deleted passwords. Set them up again and next time you delete history you'll notice an option to keep the cookies for sites you have set as "Favorites". Do that and you'll be good to go.

My problem boiled down to this. I could log in to vista using my (Admin) account and create as many new users as I wanted to via the User Management tools in the control panel. In the User Management tool, I could see each and every one of the new accounts. When I booted up the system or choose to Switch Users, all of the newly created accounts showed up on the log in screen. However, any attempt to log in using any of those accounts resulted in the same "The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded" error.

I have an issue where the user will log into their normal profile, but then the computer says, "Preparing your profile..." and when it finished and they are logged in, it's like their profile has been reset.  We restart the system and log-in again and it's back to their normal profile.  After another restart when they log-in their profile has be reset again.  There is no error generated, and nothing other than the "Preparing your profile..." message to set it apart from a normal log-in, other than everything seems to be gone when the log-in is completed.
This has happened with two different Windows 7 machines and an XP machine.
Does anyone know a reason why this would happen?  We are speculating it could be malware related.  We have not ran any scans yet, but we are set to investigate this deeper this afternoon.  We haven't had a chance to look at the logs, either.
