Help!  A user can't can't log on to our network, he's getting this message:
Windows cannot copy file \\servername\username$\Profile\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\2PYFIVG1\adsize...(a very long name)...htm   ERROR - Filename or extension too long.  I looked at his folder on our domain controller and couldn't find any temporary internet files.  Then I tried deleting temporary internet files system folders completely, even though I the 2PYFIVG1 wasn't listed.  Still the same error.  I am having a hell of a day and would just like for one network problem amongst my many today to be solved - thus the points!!

howdy,

have a look on the domain controller under ad users and computers, under domain users or whatever group where this persons login resides, right click the users name in the right hand frame got to properties, select the tab for profile and check the login path.

hope that this helps
