WINDOWS-7 LOGON TO A DOMAIN, AT EVERY REBOOT ENTERS TEMPORALY ACCOUNT MODE

Windows-7 pro when login at the local domain of server in office,
Suddenly lost all user settings, can login to local pc -user without problem.

However logon to in-office domain will display creating temp. account , then i can login on
domain, run all software there, but for instance I  must every time reinstall Outlook for this user to connect to the exchange server.

Did login as administrator,  removed user on PC , deleted all maps on C-drive,
reboot, recreated user again.  Reboot, then  again same story , temp. account!
how to solve without formatting harddisk en do a clean install
Thanks

Also, if what Seth2740 recommends fails, and ONLY if it fails, you can try renaming the users profile folder which will cause a new one to be created when they login next.  This isn't an ideal solution but it may work.  

Example, if the username is bob then go into c:\users\ and rename the bob folder to bobold and then have bob log in.

If it doesn't make a difference, just rename it back to bob

If it fixes the issue, you would need to copy the files from the bobold folder over to the new users profile so they have all of their settings, files etc.

ok did delete the keys, and removed user, did not work
then did again, plus !
Did a search for whole r
egistry and removed all links to this username,
only thing I can tell also is that this user is/was the PC owner name when local (during installation win-7)

Only things I did not delete from registry is the installproperties keys for installed programs e.g. adobe that will still show Regowner  Username
also keys like current version\registeredOwner

Then reboot, same problem if I logon to domain,  temp. account , not saving settings when logging off
Make sure the user is not a member of one of the following local/domain groups:

    Guests
    Domain Guests

info:  I can create on other win-7 station this user to the domain and run all software,
log-off/ log-on goes ok on that station, so its not a domain issue


so he is not a member of one of the following local/domain groups:
    Guests
    Domain Guests
i followed this link and steps
http://www.sysprobs.com/fix-temporary-profile-windows-7 

last step I dis is as said created a new name local,   then renamed this to user name wished
can login local , but on domain it gives at login

Server user profile services blocks logon
userprofile can not be loaded
Since it is a domain account it is more likely that the problem lies in the domain rather than the workstation.

Have you tried to log that domain user on another computer?

What about the Event Viewer, are there any errors that might point you to the source of the problem (check System Log, Application Log and Security Log)?

Also if you have administrative rights for the domain you can log on to a DC to check if the failing user account has a roaming profile - which at least at first glance seems to be the most probable cause of the problem.

True , re-install would be faster, the reason i tried this was because i am system-manager 150 miles away, so must get in the car to do.
Back luck,  most of machines had there acronis images , only this on not yet
Well, i think it's worth a re-install rather than wasting time. I know 150miles is way away - but hey you'll ensure that the work is done once you get the box fixed - few hours wasted - absolutely agreed, but you'd have a good sleep at the end of the day with few beers of course :)

well,  did not want to drive, continued google,   got this advice , did work,
so share this with you

in regedit:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control
Key: RegistrySizeLimit
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 0xffffff (4294967295)

then
 reboot

then
As a Administrator open a Command Prompt and run "SFC /SCANNOW". The command should complete successfully and if any errors were found, they should be corrected.

yep and back again without the error!
