You have been logged on with a temporary profile

Good Morning,

I have a machine on a domain that has been logging into temporary accounts.

The steps I have taken to remedy this are as follows:-

1) Backed registry up and made a change to account under <HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList>

When this process is taken, it duplicates the folder on next login and renames the previously used folder to ".bak" - See attached item "registry2"

2) Logged into the local machine and backed up all Users to a separate location and deleted all profiles

I then proceeded to reboot the machine, and log into the domain again.

3) Ran a CHKDSK which had uncovered nothing

4) Removed machine from the domain, rebooted, then reattached. And attempted to log into a domain administrator account.

All steps taken have not resolved this. Has something incredibly simple been missed?

Kind Regards,

When you say
Backed registry up and made a change to account under

What change do you make?
You need to delete that key, completely...and the folder under C;\Users\Profilename

Once you remove both those and login things should work(note you have to remove both those with another admin account...not while logged in with the temp  profile)

Is that what you've done already?
