User cannot log into domain correctly

After a hard reboot, i can no longer enter my domain properly.  When i try to log in it says "Windows cannot load locally stored profile.  Possible causes include insufficient security rights or a corrupt local profile.  Error performing inpage operation."   Where should i go from here?

If it is a corrupt profile you should be able to work around this by leaving and rejoining the domain under computer properties.  You can then try to restore relevant profile data from the corrupt profile.

There is a profile workaround with a registry edit, and if what I suggested thus far works let me know and I will tell you the possible workaround without copying the file.  The concern is, if the profile is corrupt, you would simply reintroduce the problem if you link directly to the old profile....

The hard-reboot could have caused the issue if there was a profile write operation pending or in progress, beyond that it is difficult to say exactly why this occurred....

Good luck!
