Can't Log In with Roaming Profile

I have a particular user that can’t log into her PC using her roaming profile. This is the error message she gets. She can log on to another PC without any problem. Nothing has been changed on the server or on her machine to best of my knowledge.

“Windows cannot copy file \\Poweredge840\Profiles\Peg\Cookies\peg@zag.122.2o7[1].txt to location c:\\Documents & Settings\peg\cookies\peg@zag.122.2o7.txt. Possible cause includes network problem or insufficient security right. If this problem persists, contact network administrator. “

Second message then comes up – “Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile.

Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off.”

Each time I restarted I got a different file name.  The second was peg@zedo[2].txtm The third was zedo[3].txt

Normally this issue occurs when c:\ drive is out of disk space.

Can you let me know how much disk space left the user has on the PC's c:\ drive where the problem arises?

Let me know...

Cool.  Reboot that machine, log in as domain administrator.
Delete all that user's profile that currently exists on it.
Log off, make that user log in and see if it creates it ok this time.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I did that exact step yesterday and same problem. I logged in as the admin and deleted the user profile, rebooted and tried logging in as the user and same problem.

Go under Computer Management, and make that user local administrator and make her try to log in again.

I'm not saying that user should be local admin, but the result will help the troubleshooting.

It looks like the system is trying to copy cookies from the profile location on the Server to the PC. Being only cookies, do you really need them?

I would clear out the \\Poweredge840\Profiles\Peg\Cookies folder on the server, then log the user on to the domain.

After further research we figured it was a virus causing the problem. Removing the virus fixed the problem. Everyone had very helpful suggestions but they didn't work.
