    windows starting up as 1st time


    The problem happened this morning as I was starting up windows 8 I got a surprise : it started on a preparing screen that usually comes up after win 8 installation.
    I remember to have seen an error screen (win 8 already booted , not that blue sking of death) on which stated something like the "user configuration could not be loaded" , sorry I canīt remember exactly the words.
    NOw every time the o.s. is booted the same happens , it takes a lot of time to be able to load my account (which is the only account I have as admin). Now what to do ? Thank you very much for your attention.

    no .baks files @ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\........


    Iīve got a problem here , no .baks files @ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList.
    The strange is that I have not deleted any folder , I remember to have deleted some mp3 files were in music folder.
    I donīt always use Windows default user folders , my method of working is different , I prefer to have all my stuff into the folders I create myself.
    I have read other options @ You receive a "The User Profile Service failed the logon : Delete the error SID and create a new profile
    As the only account I have (computer is mine , no one else uses it) is Ron Wolpa , which is the admin , I donīt know the consequences of deleting it. I have a very neatly organized desktop with icons , a lot of programs installed , will I lost anything ?
    I have never deleted my main account before. Iīve found a MIcrosoft fix 50446 that does not work for windows 8.
    Thank you for your support.
