User cannot connect to his profile through workstation

This morning one of my accountants reported extreme slowness when connecting to a mapped drive. I clicked around a bit (tried to get to control panel & one of his shortcuts), and everything crashed.

We restarted and he logged in. The log in screen took about 5 minutes and booted to a completely black screen. After 2 more minutes, it displayed his desktop but none of his icons were present and he could not connect to any drives.

I had him restart and we repeated the experiment with the same result.

Because we use an Active Directory domain with folder redirect, I grabbed a spare accounting computer and had him log in. Everything worked fine (and continues to work fine).

I am unsure how to proceed fixing his current computer. I am able to log in with my account - I tried unjoining and rejoining to no avail.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Try to backup his old profile and re-create it.

Could be a bad hard drive as well, but as suggested above, start with renaming his profile and then go from there.

Like this is very harsh to say...

Why you are connecting with Active Directory.

It ca be your hardware problem or it can be your software problem, you r ram anything it can be but it cant be had any relation with your Active Directory.
