Roaming profile woes

I have a user who has corrupted his roaming profile in Windows XP.  I have tried following some of the posts on here but as I am unable to remove nor rename the profile on the Windows 2003 server I haven't been successful.  I have even tried creating a new profile for the user on the server but it will not create a new roaming profile under the existing profiles for the organization.  Any idea how I can fix this corruption if I can't rename or remove the old one on the server?   Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

are you the explicit owner of this profile you intend to delete/rename AND do you have full access permissions on the whole profile including subfolders?
is the user whose profile you intend to delete/rename logged off for this procedure?

That's just it I'm not able to determine who the owner of the profile is when I click on the security for the profile.  I'm logged in as the domain administrator so I would think I had access to everything.  It says that I can take ownership if I need to.  Yes the user is logged off of the network when I attempt to rename the profile. What would you suggest?
