I'm having an issue with one particular user account.  When the user logs on to her laptop (windows xp pro) her account shows as temporary (instead of local) under the status column under user profiles in system properties.  I logged on as her to my pc (windows xp pro) and the same thing happened.  I went under user manager on the server (NT 4.0) and everything looks fine with her account.  Anyone ever seen this problem?

"A temporary user profile is issued each time an error condition prevents the user's profile from loading. Temporary profiles are deleted at the end of each session, and changes made by the user to their desktop settings and files are lost when the user logs off. Temporary profiles are only available on computers running Windows 2000 and later."

This is what i got from:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/policy/policy/temporary_user_profiles.asp

Try checking Event Viewer for any errors.  Have you tried recreating the account?

I was going to do that next but the user is most likely logged in somewhere else right now.  I'll have to give her a call and try that.
