The danger of the corrupt profile has become more dire with Windows 8. If you don't have a spare Admin account then you have to get your files out with other boot CDs (Linux?) and then ask for a full refund as this is a product defect.
Yes, the corrupt profile issue has been around since 2000 and MSFT had many chances to correct this.
Save your files and return the product.
For some strange reason I can't login into windows 8.
I get a message stating user profile cannot be loaded. I tried booting into safe mode and logging, but it still asks for the password and after i enter the password, same error all over again.
Also as an only user of the pc I can't select a different user account.
