Guest Unable to Logon Or Create Accounts
I have no idea how I got my system in this condition. I enabled the Administrator account and I’m trying to temporarily enable the Guest account. I have been attempting to enable the Guest account on but when I do turn it on, I can't logon as Guest. I have looked at “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\C urrentVersion\ProfileList” and I don't see the Guest account at all (SID missing). From what I understand, the SID is only created during the first logon. The problem is that I can’t ever logon as Guest. When I try to logon as Guest the system comes back with: "The User Profile Service service failed the login. User Profile cannot be loaded." It seems that there should be a way to recover these predefined or standard logins. I don't want to do a system restoral as I have my system the way I want it (except for this problem with Guest) that I want to avoid any possibility of mistakes. Also, set the group policy for ‘Deny log on locally’ to blank (removed Guest). Still doesn’t work. I’ve tried running ‘ sfc /scannow’ in safe mode with no errors reported: “Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.” Any idea how I can fix this situation with Guest?
I’ve noticed ‘strange’ files in the ‘C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile’ directory. Files like ‘ntuser.dat.LOG1’, ‘ntuser.dat{1e6cbac2-c7c1-11dc-8cfe-806e6f6e6963}.TM.blf’, ‘ntuser.dat{1e6cbac2-c7c1-11dc-8cfe-806e6f6e6963}.TMContainer00000000000000000001.regt rans-ms’, ‘ntuser.dat{1e6cbac2-c7c1-11dc-8cfe-806e6f6e6963}.TMContainer00000000000000000002.regt rans-ms’, and ‘ntuser.dat.LOG2’. They seem to be remnants of a Vista bug but I can’t be certain. What is your view on this?
Thank you,
