filename or extension too long, cannot load user's profile

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!!
