    User Accounts (XP Pro 5.1)

    Hi. I am having problems with User Accounts.

    My computer is a stand alone. I have an administrator account for myself. I wanted to create another account for my brother but encountered a problem. I can create another account but when I try to switch users I am unable. The error message is "Windows cannot log you on because your profile cannot be loaded ..."

    What is going on and how do I fix it?

    Try this Knowledge Base 288750 or this Here And you may try this 318011

    Did the error give you a Detail? Because this can happen for a few different reasons.

    Hi Cowboy. The Detail is 'The system cannot find the file specified.' I hope this tells you something and you know the solution.

    Try logging OUT and then logging in using the new account and password. The switch user may be turned OFF. If this will not word, log back in using the current account, delete the new account and select the files option when asked. Then make the new account, log off, and then try logging in with the new account again.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Thanks everyone. It seems that if I create a new administrator account (in contrast to a limited account), the problem is solved.
