Recover corrupt user profile on domain PC
Posted on 2009-12-22
I have a user on a domain PC that, as best as I can tell, has a corrupt user profile.
When they attempt to login the PC hangs at "Applying Personal Settings". Other user can login without issue.
The only method I have found for recovery involves creating a new local account on the PC and copying the contents of the corrupt users Docs & Settings into the similar folder under the new user created. Then to login as the new user.
I am sure I must be missing something here... My users don't maintain local accounts. Just domain accounts. If I login to the local account that I created how is that going to "play" with my domain user account??
