    Hi There,

    Been trying to figure this out in the past few days with no luck.

    No one can login normally to the server regardless of admin/standard, new or previously logged in profile.

    All logs in as temporary profile with black background, any clicks keeps showing the 'Location is not available'

    I've seen few online suggestions but are specifically targeting client OS not server and also only specific profile user.

    Any ideas? Microsoft people?



    Windows cannot load the user's profile but has logged you on with the default profile for the system. 

     DETAIL - The system cannot find the file specified.
