Windows cannot locate the server copy of your roaming profile and is attempting to log you on with your local profile. Changes to the profile will not be copied to the server when you log off. This error may be caused by network problems or insufficient security rights.

 DETAIL - The system cannot find the path specified.

how can i fix this, it just started happening with no extra input from me.

The profile, specifically ntuser.dat is corrupt. Use system restore to restore to the last time it worked correctly (maybe yesterday, not too far or other issues will arise) and all should return to normal. Start, Programs, Accessories, System Restore.

Well After Days of researching this issue, I found the answer to my problem, I am running a stand alone profile that is not connected to a server, therefore, I do not require a roaming profile. I dont know how it every activated itself but i found out how to disable the roaming feature and return back to a local profile. now i do not get the message at start up. To change from using roaming profiles to a locally cached profile, open System in Control Panel, switch to the Advanced tab, click Settings under User Profiles, click the Change Type button, and click Local Profile.
