I booted up my laptop just now, and, as Windows starts to load, I get a User Environment error that states that, "Windows cannot load the locally stored profile."

The temporary profile was then loaded. I attempted two system restores, but neither were successful.

Any advice?

EDIT: After following this page's instructions (, I made a new account called New Account, while the main/admin account is still named Justin.

Did you fix the problem, if so your EDIT might be of value.

Otherwise please create your own new post rather than adding to an existing thread. That way you will get focussed help and we will at least know what operating system you are using.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Check to see how much free space there is on the OS partition (usually C:\). Low disk space is usually the cause of this message.
