No other users can log on to this one NT4 workstation but the main user of the computer and administrator. Users who try to log on to this machine receive this error: The operating system was unable to load your profile. Please contact your Network Administrator. Looked on Microsoft's site and found some info regarding this but still have no solution......help......

dum question, have you look into the profiles folder?, are those profiles there?, why don't you create new accounts if they don't work?, if they need to have certain configuration, maybe you can copy someone else's profile and then modify it...

It sounds like there could be a combination of problems...

1) The NT Workstation is set up to not log into a domain (or a different domain), therefore, all logins are locally on the workstation only. If there is no user account on the local workstation, a user will get this error message.

2) The workstation login process is looking for a roaming profile, but cannot attach to the network share containing the user's profile. Check permissions set on the network share containing user's profiles.

3) The workstation is incorrectly registered in Server Manager/Workstations, and/or WINS. You might want to delete the workstation entries in WINS, and delete then re-add the workstation name in Server Manager.

Good luck.

Check how many profiles you have in \profiles directory, delete all unnecessary profiles, also check how much disk space you have left on system partition.

This one may sound dumb, too, but what happens when you set the user level of a user to domain administrator and let them log in? If they get in, then I'd check and make sure that the permissions of the profiles folder hadn't set too high.
