1) **RENAME** the roaming profile on the domain controller, or wherever it is you store the roaming profiles. (dont delete or you will loose all of the data for the user)

2) have the user log in again.

3) pull all the important data from inside the old roaming profile that you renamed, My Documents, any outlook pst data, favorites, etc.


This is not ideal and is in no way a fix for this error; however, if you do not want to spend countless hours trying to fix before giving up anyway, just follow the above steps.
