I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I would like to create a new local admin and remove the administrator privileges from my main user. I created the new user but when I try to login I get the following error.
"The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in." "User profile can not be loaded"
I do not see a folder for that user in c:\Users or a profile entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
Nothing is jumping out at me in the event log either.
I created the user with the following steps.
- Family & other users
- Other users
- "Add someone else to this PC"
- "The person I want to add doesn't have an email address"
- "Add a user without a Microsoft account"
- Enter the user name and password
- Click next.
At this point I have a new (non administrator) user listed in the "Other users" list but can not login as that user. I tried making that user an administrator and that did not help. I have tried creating several new users and none of them work.
