The server group policy is not allowing her profile to launch according the preset rule sets and filter for network traffic.. Chek her GPedit setting and be sure she has right sto connect to the domai0 in the GPolicyby group rights..

Check the file permission settings of profile folder on server side.

Insure that the user's profile path is pointing to the locatation of their NTuser.man. (mandatory) profile - also if the server only has a limited number of licenses and they are already taken - then the local profile is loaded until another user logs off. It sounds like she has more of a pth issue though if it only her workstation. I would check the name resolution in her path statement in her user profile account on the server to be sure she has the exact correct path and that she has been set up for mandatory connection status. If this does not work , you shoudl check the link connection rate between her PC and the server - if it times out because it is slow it will see the local profile as the only available profile to launch.
