This happens when the user profile becomes corrupt.


Are you logging in with a domain user account? Can you log into any other servers or computers with that account?


If the user account can be used to log into any other computer/server, log in with the admin account, go to the C:\Users folder and rename the user profile's folder to something like C:\Users\badprofile.old. Reboot and log back in as that user. Transfer all existing files from badprofile.old to badprofile.


If that doesn't work, you may need to edit the registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList. Delete the old profile key that begins with s-1-5-21-* and ends in .bak, and then reboot the server and log in as the user.
