    There's usually a built-in administrator account on Windows systems. Should be admin or administrator, with the password being administrator unless it was changed on installation. You may have to re-boot in safe mode to access it - haven't tried with Windows Vista. As long as the computer still has internet connectivity, you should be able to search for solutions - sometimes it involves modifying the registry or just creating a new account and transferring user data over.

    Not sure how much of a help this is, though. I usually just muddle through these problems and forget how soon after it's fixed. :?

    I have a Windows Vista run pc and I've been encountering a problem. When I log into my profile, it comes up with a message saying " The User profile service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.

    I have three profiles, but this one is the administrator profile and the one I use. The other two are working but I don't have an Internet connection through them, or any files that I need.

    If anyone can help me, I'd be extremely grateful. :)

    That's usually a corrupt profile. Is this the built in administrator account you are getting it on or one you created?


    Edit: And HappyGamer does have it right, it is usually a registry edit that can fix it. But you have to be logged onto a profile that has admin access.

    If above ideas do not work, google "Lost or forgotten Windows password" and see if those ideas help.

    Also, some motherboards have a dip switch setting to reset the admin password.

    The problem is you are running Windows vista.

    But it sounds like a corrupt profile. You can try a Windows repair or recovery.
    If they do t work I would say you are out of luck. well not completely but I don't want to get into more.

    I know what it is.

    It's because you haven't sent your space question to Elian.
