Open Control panel->System->Advanced->Environment variables. See what folder Temp variable is pointing to. Then open that folder in Windows explorer and delete everything there (not the folder itself though :) ).

1st confirm that the user has permissions to your TEMP directory.

c\documents and settings\username\local settings\Temp

2nd make sure the user is not logged in.

3rd log in as a different user and delete there temp dir


then try to login.
