    Unable to Login to Profile

    When I first power on my computer for the past week, the initial login fails. I get a "user profile cannot be loaded" error. I'm given the option to dismiss or sign out. I can sign out and then login normally without difficulty.

    Any thoughts what might be going on?

    Hi ericnixmd.

    When I hear Power Up and an issue I think Windows Fast Startup.

    To test, at a command prompt (admin) or Power Shell (admin) enter the following command

    powercfg -h off

    to reverse change the word off to on in command.

    Great. That was just a quick test. If you want to enable hibernation, for power savings, you can issue the command to reverse and then follow this tutorial to just disable Windows Fast Startup.
