Error Creating User Profile

By dgilliam ·
I'm attempting to create a user profile for the first time on a terminal server by logging in under that name and I get the following message:

User Environment: Windows cannot log you on because the profile cannot be loaded. Contact your network administrator.
DETAIL - There is not enough space on the disk.

I've searched over everything, I have 239 MB of free space and I even deleted some old profiles that were no longer used yet I'm still getting the same result.

Any advice would be great at this point!!

Check the size of the Default user Profile. This is the profile used to create new users on the machine. If it is larger then 239, you should see what is in it.

The other thing I would check is permissions. If this particular user does not have permission to write to the "documents and settings" folder, they would get a similar message because the profile can't be created.

Hope this helps

i also had the same error message... after a little it bit of research i found that it is related to video card driver.. you can check if its the problem by using Start>run>dxdiag>video if theres a problem it will show it.. if you are unable to log on normally.. try logging in safe mode and then use dxdiag.. if this is the problem uninstall the current video driver loaded...
this problem is mainly in xp SP-1 and XP most wanted..
hope it helps...
