    User Profile Services failure error after factory reset


    I factory reset my Windows10 laptop, using remove all my personal files option. After it's done, my user profile is still there, and when i try to sign in, it gives "The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in" error, and I can't seem to do anything about it.Is there any way to delete the user profile so that I can start from scratch like the first time I used it?I tried signing in with a safe mode but it didn't work.I appreciate your help in advance!

    :)
     

  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 failed

    To resolve your concern, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Copy the Default folder (in C:\Users) from another windows 10 computer.
    • Rename the Default folder to something like DefaultOLD (just to keep it for safety reasons).
    • Paste it in your Users folder.
    • To make sure that you won't have problems with permissions of the "implant" folder, just transfer it via a FAT/FAT32 formatted USB stick (those filesystems don't have permissions).

    This will provide solution to the error User Profile Service failed.

    Let us know if you need more assistance.

    User Profile Services failure error after factory reset

    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.
