    My wife and I have been unable to Login & repeatedly get the above message.

    I have looked on all the relevant threads noting the above and can't find a
    solution because each solution requires 1) accessing "Start", 2) accessing
    msconfig, 3) setting up a second administrator.

    I can't fathom how to do any of the above solutions if I can't even logon to
    go to them. Please help me get out of this loop and it will be much
    appreciated.

    This is getting to be quite a problem with many people now. Your going to
    have to find a program you can burn to a disk from another computer(if you
    have one). Otherwise, theyre are limited options.
    Try googling "reset windows vista password"
    There should be a iso somewhere.
    when you do get it reset, you may want to enable the administrator account
    and write down the password somewhere
    OR
    create a password reset disc

    Thanks for the idea. I can use a thumb drive if I know 1) what program to
    download from my toshiba with windows & 2) how to get it onto my locked dell
    if I can't get passed the Password prompt. I can't access start,
    accessories, command prompt........nothing. Any ideas how/what to do from
    here?

    Thanks

    i just had something like this.
    if you have another hard drive with an operating system, plug it in, make
    sure to sign in to that harddrive, go to computer, double sclick the hard
    drive you can not access, and now you have access to it. not sure how yours
    is set up but you can get to user profiles and make a new one just for log in
    sake or change the one you are having problems with.

    worked for me

    GREAT LINKS BELOW, THANK YOU MR. MURPHY FOR SHARING THOSE.
    I SAVED EVERY ONE OF THEM IN MY FAVORITES JUST FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

    BUT TO MELLE, YOUR INSTRUCTIONS REGARDING THE HARD DRIVES ARE SUREL
    NOT FRIENDLY FOR SOMEONE WHO ISN'T A WHIZ AT COMPUTERS. I HAVE TAUGH
    MYSELF A LOT, BUT I CANNOT FOLLOW GOING TO A HARD DRIVE, SIGNING IN
    THEN GOING TO MY PROBLEM COMPUTER AND DOUBLE CLICKING.... DOUBLE CLIC
    WHAT? IF ONE IS LOCKED OUT AND HAS NOTHING BUT A BLACK SCREEN SAYIN
    \"USER PROFILE SERVICE FAILED THE LOGON\", THEN WHAT DO YOU CLICK ONTO?
    I DON'T KNOW... PROBABLY A STUPID QUESTION, BUT I JUST CAN'T FOLLOW YOU
    DIRECTIONS. CAN YOU ELABORATE ANY MORE AT ALL? THANK YOU.

    FOR ME, THE ONLY THING THAT WORKED, AND I WAS LUCKY THAT I HAD SET U
    OTHER USER ACCOUNTS, WAS TO SIGN INTO ANOTHER ACCOUNT; AND THERE I WEN
    TO MY SYSTEM RESTORE AND RESTORED MY SYSTEM TO A DATE PRIOR TO WHEN TH
    PROBLEM STARTED. IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM. SYSTEM RESTORE. IT IS TH
    BEST THING WINDOWS EVER DID FOR US! I CAN SEND DIRECTIONS FOR HOW T
    USE THIS IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED.

    having a second account proves to have benefits once again.
    I assumed you did not have one(wasnt mentioned)so i tried to show another
    way to access that harddrive which you where unable to log on to. that is if
    you had a second harddrive , u select computer, then hard disk drive(not c),
    then you have now bypassed login and access as if you had logged in. then go
    about everyhting the same way, to makek a another "user account" to log on
    or if possible (depending on the exact problem why you were locked out)mend
    the problem, which in your case was restore. so basically i told you how to
    do exactly what you soon realized,and did.

    Here is your advice below.
    Now hero, tell the good people HOW to get to where YOU say to go when they
    CAN NOT log in, and they are a single user account.!!!!!
    Don't know, do you??????

    "It is amazing to me how much bad advice is being given to correct this
    problem. If people take any of this bad advice they are likely to
    royally mess up their system.

    For those who might not know how to reach System Restore, just go to
    your control panel, then System and Maintenance, then Backup Your
    Computer, and there you will see a link that says:
    -"_Use_System_Restore_to_fix_problems_and_undo_changes_to_Windows_".-"

    Good one.

    Here's another that will make access to it faster after the first
    time:

    Click the Start orb

    All Programs

    Accessories

    System Tools

    Find System Restore

    Right-click it and PIN TO THE START MENU
