Installed a new machine to the network.  Connected to domain. WHen i log in as one user (he is a local admin) his profile logs in as a temp profile. Tried couple of other users and i have no issues on same pc.
 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
does not have a record of user after log off. I tried renameing the key when logged in. Is there anything else i can try?

this is not normal for a local user, what does the event-viewer log say?

Have you tried deleting and recreating the profile.

This can be rectified by deleting the bak profile on the registry and the user profile on your "user profiles", please have look at these link, all similar to yours and will be helpful,

I tried all the suggestions above and it did not work. So I did a system restore to earlier time and reconnected to domain and it worked.
