Domain account will not create userprofile in Windows 7

I am having problems logging into a Windows 7 machine for the first time. Others may log in but my username will not create a userprofile on the hard drive nor will it create a registry entry for my username. To make sure it wasnt just the PC i tried loggin into another Windows 7 machine and it gave me the same error and I had a co-worker log into the PC (for the first time with his account) and it created it fine. Anyone have any idea whats goin on here?
Other info: We are running at a Server 2003 level.

Does your user have create and write rights to the directory where the profiles are created?

Nope. We dont really move from PC to PC very often. I had to start over on this particular computer

I cant imagine it wouldnt. Not sure where that would be able to be restricted at?

Is this PC a member of the domain?
Are the profile folders redirected to a spot on the server?

Log on as the domain administrator and add your user to the local PCs administrators group.

The problem isnt "solved" but I did find a way around it. In Active Directory I copied my account and gave it the same name just with a 1 at the end. Logged in to the PC I started using. Logged off that account, deleted it out of acitve directory. Renamed the file on the harddrive to my username, logged in and it worked! Like i said not a fix but it works currently. Im still looking on how to do that Austin thanks for the responses guys!
