Temporary Profile

I have set up the administrator account/profile on a Lenovo G780 laptop.  All network functions O.K.  Attempted to set up a user account/profile for an existing user who is getting this laptop to work from home with.  Her desktop at work is fine on the network, but when I try to set her profile up on the laptop, it keeps setting up a temporary profile.  I have deleted registry entries and user accounts and even started over again with a clean install of Windows and it still wants to set up a temporary profile instead of the usual profile that I have been setting up here for almost 5 years.

In her account on the server ensure that the profile path is not set. It may be referencing a server location which will lead to a temp profile if the path cannot be found when she logs in offline.

If what you mean by "when she logs in offline" is that the computer is not connected to the domain network, it is.  I can log on as admin, but when I switch users, to add her using her logon and password, that is when the temporary profile is established.  And I can't get rid of it.

Sorry I didn't make it very clear. I haven't had access to a server for the last couple of weeks so couldn't lay it out exactly. Glad you got it.
