    The User Profile Service failed the sign-in.


    Whenever I make a new user account I get:

    "The Profile Service service failed the sign-in

    User profile cannot be loaded."

    I've tried going into regedit and altering the user account, however there is not an S-1-5 entry associated with it. This happens every time I create a new user. My admin and other user account work fine. I'm lost please help.
