Profile service not available

Good day guys,
                           I have a situation in a domain environment where the servers running Server 2003, I have 8 clients currently running Windows Vista. Recently I upgraded one machine from Vista to Windows 7 and got the error message about User profile Service failed the logon, user profile can't be loaded.  I check the profile list in the registry and notice no  registry Keys for roaming profiles. How can I fix this problem, what necessary steps are needed when upgrading machines on a network on a domain to ensure a smooth transition. Thanks

This is straight from the Microsoft support site.  It should take care of what you need.  It is actually a very simple registry fix.  If you don't feel comfortable in the registry then I suggest getting in touch with someone who does and can do this for you.

Thank you Trent Smith for your response, well I am familiar with this registry edit. The thing the accounts listed I have no problems logging on locally. But i did tried the fix it patch option and it didn't work. However I was reading the article and it lead me to the user profile window under the Advance tab in system properties. There I notice the profiles to logon locally are present but not the roaming profile  that is present on the other machines that haven't been upgraded. I have attach the screen shots for comparison. So it's like the machine have no awareness of a roaming profile and I see no options to add one other than locally.

Are you logging on a user that has Administrator permissions?  Can you take the system off the domain and then put it back on?

Then the next step is to have someone else do that who does have the permission.  Then see if that resolves tye issue.

The systems was set up by another party that no longer manages the system due to a fallout but on-site technicians would use those configurations that is somewhat limited yet sufficient enough for day to day operations.
