User Login Failed
I have Vista Home premium and am just setting up my computer. I have a
workjing Administrator account and created two standard user accounts - one
for my wife and I. My new PC is networked to my old PC running Windows XP - a
simple two PC home network.

Vista will not let me log in to either of the standard user accounts. the
error message I get is "User Profile Service service failed"

So far I am not Impressed by Vista!

RE: User Login Failed

You can find this under Services (Control Panel > Admin Tools > Services),
it's called User Profile Service. Check to make sure that it is listed as
Started under Status and that its Startup Type is Automatic. You can
configure both by double-clicking on it in Services.

RE: User Login Failed
Hi, I am having the same problem. I checked the User Profile Service and it
is configured correctly, but I still can't log on as a standard user or
guest. I have tried deleting and making a new account to no avail. What else
can I try?
