Transferring from one domain to another we copy user profiles from C:\Documents and Setting\OLDUSER to NEWUSER. We have a few select computers that when you log in after the copy, the desktop wallpaper comes up but not icons, no ability to Ctrl-Alt-Delete. The Profiles on these computer are rather large but we moved the large directories to the root of C:. Still only get the wallpaper and mouse. Also cannot right click on desktop. These are all Win2k machines that have the problems. We have been able to migrate other Win2k boxes without problem.

The initial login as the user (prior to profile copy) works fine
