You can delete both profiles. They will be recreated the next time.

But before that, take care of folders like desktop, favorites, my documents etc.

frankc may be a windows prior to vista profile
frankc.v2 is profile newer than vista

v2 profiles are used in newer operating systems

hi virastar, thanks that url was useful explanation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

step 1

however what i did was delete both 'domain user accounts' from fileprintserver successfully and now also removed win 7 laptop and domain account from domain and created a new one.

step 2

added laptop back to domain by itself

step 3

created new domain user account
added profile path manually into account
moved both laptop and account into gpo

step 4

logged onto domain with win 7 laptop successfully

step 5

accessed fileprintserver and confirmed now only one profile account

all good

normally i would use xp so never had a problem, but what i found was i would first follow the above steps and logon to the domain first of all with no profile path in place.

then i would log off domain from laptop and then move domain account and laptop inside ou/gpo in aduc

then log back onto domain via laptop which i think was the reason for ending up with 2 profiles.

so at least that 'url' gives some sort of explanation.

appreciated
