This usually happens when you are trying to login as a user that does not have the proper rights for the 'C:\Documents and Settings' directory.  The first time a user logs in, his settings are copied from 'C:\Documents and Settings\Default User'  which is hidden to 'C:\Documents and Settings\%username%'.  Without proper rights, this copy can not take place and the user cannot login.  Login as the administrator and check the rights for 'C:\documents and settings'

Do you have romaing profiles?  cause that would be a different problem.

If you run run a WordPress, you understand the potential headaches you may face when updating your plugins and themes. Do you choose to update on the fly and risk taking down your site; or do you set up a staging, keep it in sync with your live site and use that to test updates?

bah...

I changed it and gave 100% access and still had error.

I then Rebooted server and then rebooted client and now problem is gone?

What rights would you normaly give the users to that fodler? RX only or 100%?

I have had the same problem on a Windows 2003 terminal server using a roaming profile stored on another server.  Intermittently the NTuser.DAT file gets locked for some reason on the local terminal server and the user cannot login again with the locally stored profile. Even if the user is logged off you cannot delete the locally stored profile folder.  The only way to resolve it is to reboot terminal server, then the user can login again. Any ideas?
