Profile of user does not periodically; Windows Update does not work

I had the "the user profile Service has no logon. Failed to load the user profile"and did a system restored about two months ago. I had the same error once again and followed the instructions that I got from a help forum to identify my user profile when the computer starts. Then I got the error again and did a system restored again. Two things have happened:

1. about every fourth time that I reboot, it loads to a temporary profile.

2. Windows Update does not work. The error that appears when I try to run Windows Update is 80070005 "unknown error."

Help! What's next?


Corruption of the profiles can be caused by several things: malware infection, bad drivers, corruption of file system of Windows due to stops unsuitable, due to lack of material (RAM and disk hard first "suspects"). You need to know what caused the corruption.

If you can't do the work yourself (and there is no shame in admitting this isn't your cup of tea), take the machine to a professional computer repair shop (not your local equivalent of BigComputerStore/GeekSquad). If possible, have all your data backed up before taking the machine into a shop.

  • Profile of user does not write in c:\windows\temp

    Due to an update of Firefox, I damaged my user files.  I installed a new profile, the limited access, to surf. Now when I try to download programs or to run JAVA applications, I get an error message... "cannot write to c:\windows\temp, access denied, file is read-only. Change the properties of files or contact Admin"in some way, I lost the ability to write to this folder. Changing the property of the 'read only' file does not work, it activates again when the file is closed. I have here a way to solve this problem while still limiting the administrator user profile. level?

    First of all, if you look at the 'Read only' attribute of a folder in the Properties window, you must know that this box has absolutely nothing to do with any read-only attribute.  It is actually used to customize the folder.  Microsoft's explanation of this is in the following article:

    "You can not view or change the read-only or the attributes of system files in Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7"
      <> >

    To change the access permissions to a specific folder, the easiest method is to log on as an administrator and change the permissions using the 'Security' tab, as seen when right click on a folder and select "Properties".  If you do not see a 'Security' tab, this means that you have XP Home or you have XP Pro with 'Simple file sharing' enabled.  Assuming you have XP Pro, you can change the access permissions to the terms of this article:

    "How to disable the file sharing simple and how to set permissions on a shared folder in Windows XP"
      <> >

    If you have XP Home Edition, you can start mode safe (repeatedly tap the F8 key during startup key) and then log in as an administrator and follow the above article, or you can log in as an administrator in Normal mode and use the command "cacls" from a command prompt window.  To bring up a command prompt window,
    Start-> Run-> "cmd".
    Then, enter the command:
    cacls C:\Windows\Temp/e/g everyone: F
    What will give "everyone" access to the complete directory.


  • Profile of user does not and much much more

    Ok... I read the user profile does not load help, but I can't get the solutions to not work. I hope someone here can help me.  :)

    I have created two profiles.  One is the admin (mine) and a second one for my wife.
    I get the error message "Unable to load profile" (or something of the sort) when I try to open my user profile (admin one)
    Following a thread on this topic, I tried to create an additional profile.  However, when I click on 'manage another account' my computer does nothing.  This is true in safe mode or using my spare user profile.  When it asks for a password here or any other time in my tests, when I type in correctly, it does nothing.  If, as a test", I type in the wrong, I get an error message, so I don't know, I type the wrong password.
    Now, I can access most of the files under my user name.  The exception is "documents" and "desktop".  Fortunately, I can get 'MY documents' so I put everything on an external drive.  (and I can do at the moment as well under this profile.)
    To complicate the ways, if I try to run cmd WITHOUT running it as an administrator, it is well, but I can't scan my drive as I want to.  When I right click Run as administrator, I get the message "Windows cannot find"C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe".  Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again. »
    I start back up once a week, however, I can't run "System Restore" restore all my files.  I get the error with both messages.
    After working with it for a while, I can't get into safe mode.  After hitting F8, I reach a frozen screen.  In other words, I can not navigate to other settings, and I can not select the default value.  (I think it's "repair menu" or something of the sort.)
    I found a thread to force the computer into safe mode to start upward.  However, when I go to run msconfig, I get the message "Windows cannot find 'C:\Windows\system32\msconfig.exe'.  Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again.
