    User Profile Cannot be loaded


    After my laptop automatic upgrade to Windows 11 Home last week, "User Profile cannot be loaded" always appears during Start up, I need to re-boot, re-boot and re-boot, then it appears normally, how I can avoid this situation?

  2. The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded.

    Hello,

    When attempting to login to my computer, I get the following message:

    "The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in.

    User profile cannot be loaded."

    I referred to this Help article,You receive a "The User Profile Service failed the logon” error
    message,


    but the only difference is I only have one user profile on this computer. So, I can't login with another user to go through the steps listed in this post.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    User Profile Service Service failed! User profile cannot be loaded.


    Brink:
    I am using registry editor from command prompt. Drilled down to c:windows\system32\config inside the Load Hive dialog window. Have selected (checked box) the SAM file; clicking on Open opens error message that says:


    SAM
    This file is in use.
    Enter a new name or close the file that's open in another program.

    _______

    I am at a loss, since I am not running any other program!

    Any suggestions?

    The SAM file is listed as being 64KB file size.

    Hi Annie,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand the inconvenience caused to you with the user accounts on Windows 10.

    Method 1: I suggest you enter into safe mode and enable built-in administrator and check with the status of User profile service.

    Step 1: Start computer in safe
    mode.


    • Type Settings in the search box on the desktop, select
      Settings.

    • Here select Change pc settings and then
      General.

    • Scroll down to Advanced startup, click
      Restart now.

    • Click on Troubleshoot, Advanced options, and Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart, select Safe mode and then press
      Enter.

    Step 2: Enable Built-in administrator.


      • Press Windows + X key together on your desktop screen.

      • Click on Command Prompt (admin) to open
        Command Prompt.

      • Type the following command and hit Enter:

    • net user administrator /active: yes
      (Check for the spaces)
    d. Now log off from the current user and try to login to the administrator account that is enabled.

    Note: Please follow the same steps and type net user administrator /active: no to disable admin account after the troubleshooting is done.

    Method 2: Try to create a new user account (Microsoft account) and check if you are able to access the content from your computer

    Create a user account

    Create a user account in Windows

    Note: Create a Microsoft account

    Method 3: Check the status of User profile services.

    Steps:

    • Press Windows + R to open Run command, type
      Services.msc and press Enter.
    • Search for User Profile Service, right click on it and
      start the service.
    • Also, set the Startup type to
      Automatic
      .
    • Now check if you are able to log-in.

    Please get back to us with updated status, we will be happy to assist you.
