Local Desktop Profiles Intermittently Lost

I have a client using Small Business Server 2003. Two of the desktop clients will occasionally lose their user profiles and will load the default profile. One of the other users does not have the same problem. All three desktops are Vista. Users still get connected to the internet so I am ruling out a problem with the switch. Any ideas?

It seems the second solution may work in terms of identifying the problem but it references a Y/N parameter that may help but does not indicate where I can find it.

Also, these users are accessing their profiles on a daily basis, plus, sometimes thr profile loads properly and sometimes it doesn't. All I can do is wait until the profile doesn't load again and check the registry settings the post identifies.

The problem appears to be that the user had disabled UAC on the desktop which then prevented an SBS profile script from running so the profile became intermittent.
