Vista - Missing SID for new user account


T

Tom

Recently I reinstalled Vista Home Premium and SP1. I made the
Administrator a super-administrator and the other a regular
administrator. Several weeks later I decided to add another user with
standard access. I used the User Accounts control panel and created
the new user, set a password, then logged off . WHen I try to logon
on, again, the logon screen displays all three users, but when I try
to logon to the new user, I get the following:

The User Profile Service service failed to logon. User profile cannot
be loaded.

I Googled the problem and can across advice to check the ProfileList
in the registry. When I did, there were SIDs for the super-
administrator, administrator, and guest, but not for the newly created
user.

So what's up? Is there another way to create a new user that might
work?

There are key entries for the two administrators and guest. THe
problem is that I cannot logon, i.e., I get

The User Profile Service service failed to logon. User profile cannot
be loaded.

Is there some other place where the data for the newly created user is
located?

Thanks,

Hi Tom,

What I'm asking is if there is a key for the new user account at all and if
there is, what are the current contents?

No, there is no key for the new user account. But the question is now
moot, as this morning when I tried to logon the system reports that
the standard administrator path cannot be found! Something is severly
wrong. Time to restore the last image of partition C.

Thanks,

I had the exact same problem and finally found thay Spy-Bot was
blocking the registry change that created the user profile.

I uninstalled Spy Bot, created the account and have had no problems
since even though I re-installed Spy Bot after creating the new
account.
