I think a profile has gotten corrupted or ???    Many months ago, user got married.   Did a name change on profile.   Well, it hasn't worked right since.  
Can someone really "dummy down" what I can do to delete profile for jdoe and let it create a new profile on login for jsmith?  I know I can rename jdoe.domain to jdoe.domain.old.

So many settings I am afraid could get lost?????     This is a domain user and we are running Windows Server 2008 r2.    

Or what will be lost if I do this?

On the desktop, go ahead and delete the profile or rename it with .old as you say.  Then have the user login and Windows will create a brand new profile for the user account.

If user name is changed on AD from jdoe to jsmith and it has been replicated, nothing should happen with profile settings. Computer should recognize that it is the same user as it will match the SID of that account (name does not matter for computers) and it should auto rename the old profile keeping all the settings intact.
If you really want to delete old profile and create a new one, then just rename old one and computer will create a new profile automatically.
