User account logs in with Temporary profile

In an attempt to correct a problem on a computer, I manually removed the users profile from "users" (windows 7)  I also removed it from the control panel "users".  Now each time the user logs on they get "you have been logged on with a temporary profile, you cannot access your files.
So each time I log on as the user all the settings are gone.  
I've already logged on as Administrator and added the user manually, but that didn't fix it.

How do I fix this?

when you say manually, do you mean through computer management or in control panel?

First I went to "C" then users and deleted the users files.  That didn't work so next I did it through control panel "users" that didn't work either.  By didn't work I mean it deleted the user, but when I log back on as them they get the temp profile
