    Workaround for Build 20226 User Profile Logon Issue


    Hello

    Microsoft posted a workaround for the Profile Logon issue:

    If your account is an Administrator account on the affected device:
    When you see the “We can’t sign into your account” dialogue, click the Close button.
    Open an elevated Command Prompt window.
    Enter and submit the following commands one line at a time:
    cd c:\users\%username%
    takeown /F ntuser.dat*
    icacls ntuser.dat* /reset
    icacls ntuser.dat* /setowner "SYSTEM"
    Sign out.
    You will stop seeing the above dialog on your next sign-in.

    If your account is NOT an Administrator account on the affected device:
    When you see the “We can’t sign into your account” dialogue, click the Close button.
    Open a standard Command Prompt window.
    Enter the following command:
    Echo %username%
    (Make note of the returned username, you will use it in step 6)
    Close the standard Command Prompt window.
    Open an elevated Command Prompt window.
    Enter and submit the following commands one line at a time:
    cd c:\users\username
    takeown /F ntuser.dat*
    icacls ntuser.dat* /reset
    icacls ntuser.dat* /setowner "SYSTEM"
    Sign out
    You will stop seeing the above dialog on your next sign-in
