Windows 7 error: "The User Profile Service failed the logon”

A friend of mine got problem while log on into his WIndows 7 with following message: "The User Profile Service failed the logon”

After Googling I found solution here. I write it here as my personal  journal.

Start your Windows in Safe Mode

1. Click Start, type regedit in search box, and then hit ENTER.
2. In registry editor, find this value: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList.
3. Locate folder begin with  S-1-5, following by long number.
4. Click on each folder to make sure that the folder contain user profile (ProfileImagePath) you want to fix. Example bellow my username is C:\Users\user
5. If the folder S-1-5 followed by long-numbers that contain user profile, example S-1-5-21-85310989-3826183054-1740520378-1000, ended with .bak, you need to change .bak to .ba. Right-click on thet folder, click rename.
6. If the folder is not ended with .bak, click the folder, doble click State on the right pane, type 0 then click OK.

7. Close registry editor, then restart the Windows.
