Is there a way to tell if a users profile is damaged from an administrative standpoint?

I'm just finding that users are getting corrupted profiles all to often, is there a way for me as the administrator to find out who does?

*I know why they are getting that way, and we are clamping down on it, just want to have something for the upper management if they ask if there's a way I can tell.

1. You could try loading the Users Registry Hive which is part of the Users Profile using Regedit.

2. Assign permissions of the users profile to another users, and checking by loading in.

But to be honest with you, seen this problem too many times, I suspect it's easier and quicker for a user to notify the helpdesk their user profile is corrupt or not working, and the Helpdesk to reset it.

lol, I am the helpdesk ;)

It's 90+ users and growing, and I'm thinking the way forward is no roaming profiles as there's too much corruption when they have 10-30GB of data that is on the profile :P
