I've encountered this weird problem with a system/user.  When I attempt to login as a particular user on Windows 7 PC.  After typing the username and password the screen says "Welcome" and the little round thing spins for a couple second then the system goes back to the Ctrl-Alt-Del screen.  The user can login to other Windows 7 systems on the domain no problem and I can login other domain users on this PC even users who have not logged into this PC previously.  The user had a domain profile on the PC so I blew that away through the "Advanced" tab under System Properties.  Still couldn't login.  Checked for viruses and the system was clean.  Any help would be appreciated.

Windows 2003 domain
Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

It seems that profile is corrupted login with built in admin and rename the user profile from C:\users or c:\documents setting depending upon the OS version.

Take the backup of registry and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ ProfileList\UserSID .

Delete all the duplicate sid e.g vmuoio,vmuoio.bak,vmuoio.00,check all the sid and delete.

Once done relogin to the machine with user login that should fix the issue.Below link is for Win7 but will work for all OS.Also assign full control on c volume to user in ntfs permission tab.Reference link:http://www.sysprobs.com/fix-temporary-profile-windows-7

Login using Local admin of the machine

Rename the  problematic account from C:\users to manish.old

Try logging in with the  Username and password this should work

Thanks to those who commented.  Neither of the suggestions worked however.  Re-imaged the system.

Thanks again

Sometimes starting from scratch is easier and more cost effective than finding the actual solution to the problem.
