The easiest method to do that would be to create a normal profile on a Windows 7 machine, and then you can intentionally delete that profile sub-folder from C:\Users.  In other words, that's not the proper way to delete a profile, and the leftover registry entries will cause that user to be logged into the machine with a temporary profile each time.  When you are done testing and want to restore normal capabilities, you would delete the profile entry from the registry in the following location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
