Hi,
I have Windows 10 Pro pcs on a network and 1 pc only will not allow me to login using my active directory login. I input my user and pass on this 1 win 10 pc, it appears to accept it and then immediately signs me out. I deleted the user folder in the C: thinking the folder corrupted but issue persists. I can login using same credentials on the other pcs hassle free. I have 40gb free on the problem pc too. Any ideas of fix?
Thanks

Yes it is and I can login with other users. Strange issue. So let's say john.doe is the username and PC3 is the problem pc. User john.doe can login to any PC but PC3 and any other user but john.doe can login to PC3. To me it suggests some corruption on PC3 for the john.doe user implying a Win 10 issue. I never saw this issue before. Thanks

On the machine that isnt working, run the command sysdm.cpl and then goto Advanced and select Settings where it says user profiles.

Remove the user from the pmachine then run the command cleanmgr as administrator and clean the PC up.

Even running CCleaner could help as well, reboot and then try the User again.

Well.. That is a little puzzling. Are there any entries in event viewer regarding the logon?

I would suspect the useraccount is still there because just removing the folder doesnt remove the account. Using my method will remove the account.

All it will do is show a ? symbol on any NTFS permissions with the users SID instead of account name.

Log in as a good user and open the registry editor.  Navigate to   HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.

 

On the right side, look for the following two keys are there and ensure they are set to the following:

 

  Shell = explorer.exe
  Userinit=C:\windows\system32\userinit.exe

 

This maynot be the issue but just to rule it out.
