A user profile appears to have been correupted in Windows 7 Pro and in XP you could just login as Administrator, rename the user profile to somethign else and then when you login as the user it would create a new local profile.  This appears to not be the case in Windows 7 Pro.

How to I create a new profile for this user in Windows 7 Pro?

Thanks
