    hi! when i start up my computer and try to log into the admin account
    (the only account) i get the above message, then it says logging off and
    returns me to the logon screen.

    please help me, all info on how to fix it that i can find is with
    computers with more then one user account.

    Login in safe mode and uninstall all protected
    software:firewalls,antiviruses,antispyware

    FYI
    If you have installed Zone Alarm I'm sure it is responsible for your
    trouble :p

    Disable all non-system services this means make clean boot procedure
    'How to perform a clean boot procedure to determine whether background
    programs are interfering with a game or a program that you currently
    use' (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/331796)
    and check results in normal mode

    im not sure if this will help, but i was able to activate the admi
    account so i can use the computer out of safe mode, but i can not creat
    any more accounts with the admin

    Check manually permissions for C:\Users folder; it should be

    Administrators group:Full Control (all checked
    SYSTEM account:Full Control (all checked
    Users group:Read & Execute,List folder contents,Read
    Everyone:Read & Execute,List folder contents,Read

    The Owner:SYSTEM accoun

    Open regedit,

    And drill down to
    *hklm\software\Microsoft\windowsnt\currentverson\profile list* Expand
    profile list and highlight the guids one by one.

    if u find *c:\users\Admin* in the right pane while highlighting any one
    of the guid rename it to .bak.


    14802



    Say in my case if i highlight the first long guide it shows my profile
    path in the right pane. So this guid is belongs to my login. Like this
    you have to rename *Admin's guid.*

    Rename the long string to *admin.bak*. Restart your computer and try :)
