I am working on a laptop running windows 7 Pro and  I have configured the local admin profile exactly how I want it, but i would like to copy this profile over another profile on the machine. I log in as another user and try to copy it over, but the copy button is grayed out. I have tried logging in as the domain admin still nothing. I have checked the GPO settings and don't see anything there either. Not sure where to look next. This always worked in XP, maybe I am missing a step in 7.
