About two weeks ago, I started receiving an unable to load profiles error. It was happening on all user accounts including the administrator account. I tried two or three virus scans from different sournces with no viruses found. I restored back to 2 days earlier with the same result. The only around it was to create new accounts, including the administrator account. Once I did that, all the desktop images that I had came back as they were. All was good for about two weeks. All of sudden it started happening again, but just on the administrator account. Ran 3 virus scans from different sources with no viruses found, but still am getting the same results. The computer is not even 5 months old. Really getting aggravated here. Any thoughts.

Hi...I have no answers for you :thumbsup:, but I think this might help understand what may be happening.

You could try the User Profile Hive Cleanup Service
