Windows 7 Workstation - Temporary Profile Keeps Being Created

The first time I set up a new employee his profile was fine, but the past two days, every time he logs in, he gets a message in the lower right corner of his screen that it is installing a temporary profile which will be deleted at log off.  I've tried logging off and on, rebooting, deleting the temp profile, deleting his profile and logging in to recreate it, etc., but every time we keep getting the temporary profile notice.  Tried some of the solutions at the following, but they didn't work either.  Any suggestions?

Hi rvfowler2,

The fix I would normally go with is partly mentioned on the link you have provided, but I wanted to check if you had tried the following steps to force a new profile to be created:
Log on as a different user and delete the profile under C:\Users (or move it to another location if you need to save documents etc. from there).
Remove the key related to the user profile under the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
Reboot and try log on again.

Let me know if this works for you - apologies if you have already tried these steps!

Have a look at this MS KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947215

Follow all the steps (unless you don't care about the existing profile, you can skip the copy step)

We tried the first two comments with no luck, so put another machine at his desk and this one also had a problem creating his profile on his computer, so it appears that his Active Dir profile is corrupted.  After work, we're going to delete it and create a new one.

Deleting and recreating a new one did not work.  Turns out the issue was that I was creating the AD user on the Exchange Server (2010) and not on our Domain Controller(Win 2008 Server).  Our Exchange Server has an AD shortcut on it, but it seems it is for viewing only (even though the new user button is not grayed out).  However, I could have created an AD user account account directly through the Exchange 2010 console; I have done it before.  Sorry for the rookie mistake.
