    Cannot log other users


    I had now months with windows 8 and I am a pretty happy user.
    All work smoothly but lately I tried to setup other users in my computer and i couldn't login ever, I tried all solutions post in different web sites and no go.
    I only can log in my original user account and I tried setting up local and online accounts.
    Any idea?

    Hello Enotar,

    Please give more details on what you mean by that you "couldn't login ever".

    What happens when you try?

    Are you able to select the other user to sign in to?

    For now, you might take a look at the tutorial below to see if it may help any.

    It says :
    The user profile service failed the sign-in
    User profile cannot be loaded

    Any idea?
    Thank you very much for your help
