Hi,

I have a new installation with the Windows Server 2008 Standard operating
system. During the first 3 months I could login with the Administrator's
account that was created during the installation without any troubles. The
machine always returns: "The User Profile service failed to logon. The
profile cannot be loaded." Now I am not able to use this built-in
Administrator's account. Trying to to do so, the system automatically logs
off. That is whhy the safety admin accounts - it was clever to create them
right after the first login with the built-in Administrator's account - must
be used to login onto the machine, only.

When trying to login with the built-in Administrator's account, series of
events are being logged like this:

1. Event ID 1500, User Profile Service
Windows cannot log you on because your profile cannot be loaded. Check that
you are connected to the network, and that your network is functioning
correctly.
DETAIL - The system cannot find the file specified.

2. Event ID 6004, Winlogon
The winlogon notification subscriber <Profiles> failed a critical
notification event.

3. Event ID 6001, Winlogon
The winlogon notification subscriber <Sens> failed a notification event.

4. Event ID 6001, Winlogon
The winlogon notification subscriber <Profiles> failed a notification event.

I hardly can understand the first message "DETAIL - The system cannot find
the file specified". What kind of file is it looking for? My server has a
role of Active Directory Domain Services, DHCP Server, DNS Server, File
Services, Network Policy and Access Services/Routing and Remote Access - no
errors found about them in the Event Viewer, at all.

Could somebody among you help with this issue without a need to reinstall
the operating system from the scratch?

Thanks!

Jozef
