I am trying to resolve a problem with a Windows 7 Professional pc logging into a domain. I've deleted the profile when logged in as the domain administrator, logged out and logged back in as the user. Now it just creates a directory called TEMP in C:\Users and is removed when that account is logged out. The user account still runs all the logon scripts and authenticates to the server but won't create an account on the local pc

Any ideas?

Sounds like the user profile might be locked. Try restarting the computer, logging in as admin, delete the TEMP and/or offending user profile.  Make sure you delete the profile via Control Panel>System>Advanced system settings>Advanced>Settings and not through windows explorer.  Then restart and login as the user.

I've completely removed the profile from the local machine. There is no user listed in the user accounts and there is no directory in the C:\Users.

Look for thier SID in teh following key, and delete the entry, if it exists.....

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

And Make sure that the Default User Profile, c:\Users Default, has the proper security applied to it. Everyone should be able to "Read and Execute", "Read", and "List Folder Contents"....
