reboot machine into safe mode and rename your profile to old so that you can get data from it, after that boot into normal mode and let it create new profile.

also check the event log in safe mode if there is any error related to service (User Profile Service).

check and make sure service logon type is selected as local system account.

With windows 7 in safe mode or logged in as another administrator account rename the problem account under c:\users\%profilename% to something like C:\Users\X%profilename%_BAD, after renaming profile folder go into the registry (BE VERY CAREFUL) navigate to
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList .  Click on each of the profile identifiers there until you find the one for the profile you are replacing.  You can check the ProfileImagePath key to find the profile.  I recommend a registry backup prior to this or at least export the Profile list to a .reg file as back up then delete the S-X-X-XX-xxxx identifier that is for the problem profile.  Reboot and log on as that user (if not administrative account you will have to log out after logging on and log in as a admin to move the files from the X%profilename%_Bad folders to the newly created profile folders ie My documents, favorites,  desktop, etc.
