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


    How can I recover from this error message?

    I click on OK, and then see the sign on screen again prompting me to enter my MS password. Not able to login as this repeats .....

    No joy, as I am not able to get into Win10's Safe Mode after being returned to the signin screen.

    I am using a DELL XPS8700 Desktop, normally. Is it a specific combination of keys (F-key) that I need to use?

    .
    One week after doing the Win 10 upgrade, I am getting this error (above). I made a restore point, and wonder if I am able to use it w/o lost of data files?

    Do I need to be in safe mode to do the restoration?
    Should I use Advanced Options-refresh of win10 ( only)?

    My recent efforts failed to solve this issue.


    After trying to to go back to a restore point, which was made immediately after the upgrade, after trying to reset this PC, and after trying the built-in WIN10 Auto Repair, I have not been successful in solving this problem. I tried this all while NOT in Safe Mode; but used shift-click Restart from the signin screen to access Trubleshooting routines.


    • Restore Point option was unable to reload a specific file
    • PC Reset option had a problem; no joy!
    • Auto Repair routine failed; no joy.

    At the time of doing the Win8.1 to Win 10 upgrade, I made an ISO copy oF the D/L onto DVD. Can that be of help to re-instalL Win10 over the existing?

    Does anyone know of a Registry hack that would allow the use of a stored .bakup of the User Profile?

    Hello Vince,

    Were you able to try what's in the note box under step 1 to enable the built-in Administrator account to do the tutorial while signed in to that account?

    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.

    Open a command prompt at boot using OPTION ONE below with installation media instead. This way it shouldn't be in use.
