win 7 profile rename issues temp profile.

I have a win 7 machine on a domain. The profile has some corruption. I tried renaming the profile and logging back in to create a new profile (like in win XP), but it keeps giving me a temporary profile - is there a reg change that needs to happen?

Ideally, I would like to create a new profile, log back in with my domain account and have a perminate profile established, then if possible, can win 7 copy the old profile over to the new?

Follow the below mentionarticle  i would rather say instead of making adjustments to those registry  delete those particular registry which is mentioned in the article  but take backup before you do that

goto registry (regedit)
follow the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
under profilelist browse the keys & delete the key referenced to your profile.

restart machine & login.
New Profile is there
