Every user gets a temp profile - Windows 7 64bit

I have removed all profile folders and cleared out all of the profiles with a  .bak  suffix that I found in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList.

This was domain computer, but I have taken it off the domain.  Even if I log in with the generic Administrator (local) user account, I get a temporary profile.

How can I fix please?  I need to set this up for a new user back on the domain.

Thanks

Windows looks for the specific folder names created for a profile when logging into that profile. If it can't find/access the folder, it creates a new temp folder. Since it's creating a temp profile folder, it will also create a temp profile key, and rename the original by placing .bak at the end of the key. Since you deleted the ".bak" keys, you deleted the original profile.

At this point you'll have to recreate all the profiles by deleting any existing, then creating them again. See the link below for details:
