Windows 7 Under VMWare Fusion - Corrupt Profile

Recently upgraded the domain from Windows 2000 SBS to Windows 2008 R2.  Using local profiles.  Over 30+ machines are working fine.

I have one user using a MacBook Pro running Windows 7 under VMware Fusion.  Since upgrading the domain this user has had his Windows 7 corrupted at least three times.  Deleted and re-created the profile each time.  Works okay for about a week.  He's using Microsoft Defender for antivirus, no new program installations.

It may be coincidental and have nothing to do with the Windows upgrade but did start shortly after that.  Any ideas?

Do you have a second Mac to try?  If you have only one Mac, create multiple profiles (ie logon as user x and y).   When problem happens with user x, check and see if user y profile is also corrupted.  Issue might not be your domain but the.Mac itself.

No second Mac but we can create a second profile.  I'll try this and report back.

This problem stopped before the user had to sue the second profile to test.  Maybe it was a Windows Update, not 100% sure.
