User profile cannot be loaded at login
Posted on 2004-03-21
For a certain user of a stand alone Windows XP Pro computer, I have recently tightened user privilages/access to regedit.exe, regedt32.exe, control.exe, Control Panel, and Documents and Settings/UserName/Local Settings. When attempting to login under this user's account, the following error is displayed:
Windows cannot log you on because your profile cannot be loaded. Check that you are connected to the network, or that your network is functioning correctly. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.
I am new to adjusting security setting for users and am concerned that I may have placed such tight restrictions on these applications/folders as to render them unusable by the entire system for this user. Is there a simple fix?
