After patching the Window 7, the user can't log back his own profile and he is assigned a profile c:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\desktop .

Is there a way to direct the user's profile back to c:\users\[user name] ? Any idea why it appears like this ?

Did you try to perform a system restore to revert the changes?

or

Did you try a SFC:

Start ----> type: cmd ----> press Ctrl+Shift+Enter ----> type: SFC /SCANNOW

The only times when Windows assigned a temporary profile for one of my users was when that profile was corrupted.

Solved it with chkdsk.

The usual regedit warnings apply...

I would backup his files then delete his current user profile from the registry at:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\[user guid]

Next time your user logs in it will create a new profile.  Then restore his files as necessary.
