Windows 7 Temporary profile issue

User A gets a logged in with temporary profile on any Windows 7 PC, but not on any XP PC.

I created user A by copying user B in Active directory and created user A's mailbox at that time. User B is no longer with the company and their active directory account and mailbox have long been deleted.

In Outlook Web Access, user A logs in and sees his email, but the path by default is https://mail.server.com/exchange/userB/whatever. When typed in the address bar of IE https://mail.server.com/exchange/userA it is the same mailbox and when clicking on messages, the path is https://mail.server.com/exchange/userA/whatever. Somehow his account is linked to userB still.

In ADSIEDIT, under his AD user account, the ProxyAddress attribute had SMTP:userB@domain.com listed first, which I just removed. After removing the ProxyAddress attribute in ADSI edit, Outlook Web Access no longer references the old users mailbox name, but I still get the temporary profile issue in Windows 7.

Our domain is 2003 functional level with 3 2003 DCs and a 2008 DC.

All other solutions here are inapplicable to this problem.
Can you think of any other thing I can check?

Check the simple things first. The logon script was pasted into the profile path of the user's AD account.

Had the same issue and this was EXACTLY what the problem was. The logon script path was in the PROFILE field instead of Logon Script! Thank you.
