RE: User Profile Service failed the logon
Thanks for the suggestion. I have installed quite a lot of software over the
last few months, which I am somewhat loath to have to reinstall if I do a
System Restore and I have no idead when this facility was last working. One
other think I have noticed is that there is no User & Groups section in
Manage My Computer.
I wish Vista had the same repair facility that XP had where you could
reinstall XP over itself. All installed programs and data were intact and you
just had to rerun all the updates to Windows XP.
Anyone any other suggestions?
