This last weekend I turned on my computer for a nice surf of the internet. I decided to use my Windows Vista boot instead of Ubuntu 10.10. I reach the sign in screen and sign in. Windows tells me it is loading and gives me a "User Profile Service not found" message. I shut down my computer and tried again. Same message (had to be sure). I used my Guest account (luckily I had that activated) and found it still worked. So I moved to trying to find what people had done with similar problems. I tried to get windows to load in safe mode, but with my dual boot, pressing f8 boots Ubuntu, even when the cursor is over my windows boot. I tried selecting windows and immediately mashing f8, but by then it was too late and already loading up windows. I don't have my disks, so I can't use that to force a safe mode start up.

I had done a full shut down last time I logged off Windows, and I had saved my last session on Ubuntu by hibernating instead of shutting down. It is frequent for me to use hibernate to save sessions so I don't have to hunt down information I had pulled up for separate assignments when using my different operating systems. Prior to the problem, the only apparent abnormalities in my routine were to shut-down windows instead of hibernate and installing an Ubuntu update.

Aside from being a ridiculous post, it is not in the least bit helpful.
