    For me I got this error after trying to create a new user and looking at Event Viewer it indicated there was an access denied with a sub-folder when it tried to copy C:\Users\Default for the new users profile, so after fixing that it worked.

    I need help! When I tried to log in the Built-in Administrator, I'm getting the same message about the user profile failed.

    Hello bybaface03, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    See if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before this happened to hopefully undo and fix this for you.

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn

    When I tried restoring the system, it's saying "no restore points have been created on your computer's system drive."

    In that case, you may need to refresh or reset Windows then.

    Under Refresh your PC, it's saying "Insert your windows installation or recovery media to continue." I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 by purchasing online through Microsoft. Will I still need to use the Windows 7 reinstall cd? What if I can't find the cd too?

    You'll need to use installation media that's the same as what you currently have installed.

    Since you purchased Windows 8 online, do you still have the ISO file for it?

    If not, then you can download a new ISO using your product key.
    If so, or after downloading a new ISO, you could create an installation DVD/USB to use to refresh, reset, or reinstall Windows 8 with.
