Win 7 Temporary profile

   We are using Windows 7 Professional and are getting  the “You have been logged on with a temporary profile” pop up shortly after the domain users are logged in.  All user settings, such as printer attachments gets removed when users logs off.

Would anyone know what this can be resolved?

Also just noticed that the domain user folder doesn’t get created under the Win 7’s c:\users folder, after successful login.

This happens with all users?
Are you using roaming profiles?

One solution is to rename the Old profile and let windows create a new one.

For some reason the Dat file has some problems and is not loaded correctly.

Our IT department does what granwizzard suggested--reboot, remotely access profile folder (or use different login) and rename, finally log in to create new profile. Something is corrupt in the profile.

Strangely, there is no user profiles to rename, only local admin user profiles exists under the c:\users directory.  Domain users don't habe profiles under c:\users. Almost like the domain users don't have access to create profiles under c:\users.

Did you check the registry, like in the step by step that i mention.

The profiles are in a share folder? If yes inside the share you can take ownership of the folder and rename it to "User1_old", next  the user will log in on a computer, the profile is created again after this you can copy the data inside the old profile to the new one.
Here's Microsoft's 'solution' for Vista, which would work for Win7, too:

Note: When you get the temp profile message, logged in users are using the profile C:\Users\Temp. That's why you're not seeing a profile with the expected name.
