How do I save the user profile in Windows 7

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I am trying to set up a Windows 7 laptop for the first time.  I keep setting up the desktop, copying over the documents and favorites.  Everything is set up for the user.  When I reboot the computer, everything is gone.  How do I save the profile so it is there the next time the user logs on.  The users are from a domain.  I did put the user in the local administrators group.  This is driving me crazy.
