Find path to %userprofile%

Can someone help me find a way to view the full path to the currently logged in user profile? (i.e. %userprofile% from cmd line).  This is not the same as "C:\Documents and Settings\" & username because I have a couple of machines that weren't in a domain at one time, and are now.  And when you join a domain, you receive a new profile, it puts .domainname at the end of your profile. (what would be administrator becomes administrator.domain & both profiles exist) So currently, my user profile path is "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.INTRANET" .  Thanks in advance for the assistance.  Right now, I am looking for all the folders containing my  username, and finding the most recently created one, but I would prefer a better way to do it if possible.
