We are on a server 2008 domain.

A user in our organization got a virus on her computer. I deleted the user profile and cleaned up the virus but now when that user logs in it says they have been logged into a temporary profile. What do I do?

The last time I dealt with this issue it was a root kit ...
So basically you need to go into the registry and fix it.  Here is an article

if you already deleted C:\Users\username you  should delete from registry as well.
Delete the registry key matching your SID from
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList". Check the value "ProfileImagePath" to make sure you pick your own profile.

I wish the solution were that simple. I've already done that. I've delete the registry keys and it is still happening

not directly solution for the problem,  but also solution - is is possible (according your internal policy) to create another user account for affected user? It is possible that if you will use different user name the problem is gone
