By following the link to do so in the KB article I linked above which I'll quote here:

"RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, use the Microsoft User Profile Hive Cleanup Service (UPHClean). UPHClean monitors the computer while Windows is unloading user profiles and forces resources that are open to close. Therefore, the computer can unload and reconcile user profiles.

To download and install UPHClean, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

only certain roles are granted things such as "log on locally" etc.

also.  right click "my comptuer" properties,   remote tab.  you have to add users you want to have access there.
i dont recommend adding non - admins.

Hi kcassone,

This is because SBS2003 does not provide Terminal Services in Application Mode.  Remote Desktop to an SBS is only for Administrative purposes.  You should never allow a non-administrator to access the server desktop.

SBS comes with a host of other remote features, such as Remote Web Workplace, which is accessed through Internet Explorer and allows users to access their office desktop machines remotely.  For users that have laptops, SBS offers the Small Business Server connection manager, a VPN client.  Please see http://sbsurl.com/rww and http://sbsurl.com/mobile

If you have users that need a terminal server environment, then you will need to add an additional Server to your network.  See http://sbsurl.com/sbstss

Lastly, if they just need email access, Outlook Web Access is installed and configured by default.

Did you configure roaming profiles?  Since you can only connect to SBS for administrative purposes, you wouldn't be using it as a workstation and therefore a roaming profile wouldn't apply.

Roaming profiles are not really a recommended practice on an SBS network... but My Documents redirection is definitely recommended, and should be handled by running the Configure My Documents Folder Redirection Wizard.  If you still want roaming profiles, please see that section of this document: http://sbsurl.com/postinstall

It's the Hive that probably has the corruption and yes that would effect all users.
