I am not sure what has happened but when I logged onto my Vista Home machne, under admin account, with usual password I got the following message.

"The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded"
I am able to login under safe mode.
If I am able to delete the admin account and create a new one what will happen to all my files.I will call the new account the same name

I don't see any special user profile listed here, I also haven't read that full tutorial.
Please check both links and see if you can get enough info there, if not, I'll check it and see what I can do.

BTW, you were using an Administrative account in Vista, right? Why does everybody have the need to do that these days :)

If you were using an account called "admin" than that's an account you've created during the setup. "Administrator" account is a hidden one.

Try to check both links I have provided in the post above and see if you'll manage to fix the issue.

you don't have permission for editing registry while logged as guest.
Try to log with the admin account and see what happens.
