I am using Vista Business on Windows 2003 server.   The machine has been working fine for a year now.  When I attempted to add a new domain user (current user and domain admin work fine) on the machine, I get the message "the user profile service failed the logon. user profile cannot be loaded".  

I have checked the registry and have no profiles with .bat and system restore is disabled per GPO.  This machine is remote and I do not have anyone to run a repair for me.  Is there any way around rebuilding this machine just to add an additional user?
