    Lock out, No solution

    I have read previous posts on lock out. I have never seen this, yet it happened to me.
    I have a single user, password protected etc. Regularly checked for virus'.
    The lock out screen stated;
    The user profile service failed the log on.
    User profile cannot be loaded.

    Now i'm fairly savy on computers, but without a full restore (im not doing another repair, 5 in the last month is too many), what are my options?

    I suppose you have restarted the computer a few times? Sometimes the user profile service fails at a first attempt and then it works properly.
