    Add User sign on


    I am trying to add a User but logon fails with msg "The ProfSvc service failed the sign in. User Profile cannot be loaded"

    I created the new user via "Settings/Accounts/Family & other users users/ Add someone else to this PC"

    Regards
    John

    Hello John, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You might see if the tutorial below may be able to help, but it usually will only help if the profile has already been created for the affected account. The profile only gets created after the first sign in though.

    If that doesn't help, then you could do a repair install without losing anything, and should be able to add a new account afterwards.

    Thanks for info. In the end I went back to a Windows 7 (I keep a disk image). May go return to 10 shortly.
