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?

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.

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!
