This error may occur if the "Do not logon users with temporary profiles" Group Policy setting is configured. And if the user profile was manually deleted by using the command prompt or by using Windows Explorer. A profile that is manually deleted does
not remove the security identifier (SID) from the profile list in the registry.
If the SID is present, Windows will try to load the profile by using the ProfileImagePath that points to a nonexistent path. Therefore, the profile cannot be loaded.
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
1. Delete the profile by using the Computer Properties dialog box. To do this, follow these steps:
a. ClickStart, right-click Computer, and then click Properties.
b. ClickChange settings.
c. In theSystem Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
d. UnderUser Profiles, click Settings.
e. In theUser Profiles dialog box, select the profile that you want to delete, clickDelete, and then click OK.

4. Right-click the SID that you want to remove, and then clickDelete.
5. Log on to the computer and create a new profile.

At least I'm not alone with this failed logon problem.
Here's where it gets tricky...
How would I fix this problem, if you only have ONE profile. When I try to logon it says, "The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User Profile cannot be loaded."
I fear that because there is not much to do on the logon screen, I fear that I will need to buy a new computer or something just as unfortunate.
