1 user has problems on 1 computer in a win server 2003 domain

1 machine of 10 on a small domain is having quirks.  It is part of the domain, but the user has been logging in as administrator on the local machine, not a user of the domain.

things have been working (username and password for the machine account are the same for the domain).

trying to log in with their domain account and I get a message about problem with the profile, you are logged in with a temp profile, see the logs for why.  I look in the logs and don't see anything.

I took the machine out of the domain.  I then deleted the computer from active directory on the server (only 1 server in the domain).  I deleted the profiles of unused accounts, including users.

I rejoin the machine to the domain and same thing - temp profile when logging in as that specific user. any other user doesn't get the tempp profile message.

What else can I do?  Delete that user from the domain then recreate it? What would that break?

Is this machnie clonned from other machine? If yes, you need to run SYSPREP to fix this issue. If your answer is NO, then you need to clear temp profile registry from DC then try to check the issue. Also check Netlogon errors on workstation of the user. Refer below for more info.
