hello expert,

I have a user that uses roaming profile .
today the user complain about errors while loading their desktop i suspect a corrupt profile
since all user in my domain uses roaming profile which is pull from the respect servers.
There  are several d.c in  each site.
Face with this problem i  rename the users orginal profile on the server also delete the local profile
on the workstation.
I ask the user to log on again so a new profile can be created, the users complian again
I then attempted to force replication out of desperation.
None of this proccess was successful.
I then visited the microsoft website and the had a solution.
The solution outline dealt with a possible corruption of the windows security database.
I could not see the relavance with the profile and the security database.

Can any expert please shed some lite on the this and if possible share any similiar experince.
Regards
Jomo

the .DEFAULT branch of the registry could be corrupt. usually like you did, deleting local profiles off the workstation works, because it makes another copy from default. but if default has invalid entries, it is replicated to each user that logs in for the first time.  time to do some registry cleanup - scan using tools for invalid entries and inconsistencies

For now, from the user's properties in AD, remove the profile network path.

Renew any old local profile from her pc (eg. user.old), get her to log on and log off from this pc to create a local profile, put back the profile path from her AD account, logon again into this pc.

Better still, rename the user's profile folder located from the server. Then create a folder and name it exactly the same name of the old user's profile folder, then restore your most recent back - the back up should be copy of her profile prior to this event happened...it appears there is a problem with the desktop.ini file being loaded.
