For the past several months we periodically have trouble logging in with our AD profiles.  We get the following message:

"Windows cannot load the locally stored profile.  Possible causes of this error include insufficient security rights or a corrupt local profile.  If this problem persists, contact your network administrator".

We've tried the following:

- Renaming the old profile and creating a new one
- Installed User Profile Hive Cleanup Service from Microsoft. (Created a scheduled task for this to run several times per week).

Anyone have any other suggestions?  Again, this seems to be periodic and doesn't happen all of the time.  The users that it happens to are all local admins of the term server.
