I have a corrupt user profile. When I log in I get logged in with a Temporary account.
I deleted the user account in hopes that it would recreate the account and it hasnt.

I am at the end of my rope. I formatter the hard drive and reinstalled windows and still no luck.

You didn't say, but by the tags I am assuming this is in a domain.
Have you tried taking it out of the domain into Workgroup and then back?

In Windows 7 you have to delete a registry key when you rebuild a profile:

Go through this link even though for Vista should work with R2 and Windows 7.

Hmm, I just read the one I posted, and I noticed that it had it done as the temp profile, thats not right!

It needs to be done as the local admin.

This is the better version

When I delete the folder that belongs to the corrupt profile it is not recreating.
Is this possibly an issue with my profile on Active directory?
Non of the fixes work. If the solution comes up when you Google corrupt profile, I have done it.

Did you log in as the local admin (not a network  / Active directory account) to delete the .bak file?

You are getting temp profile because roaming profile is not being copied
