These are some steps to follow in the event it is not a corrupted profile http://www.sysprobs.com/fix-temporary-profile-windows-7 but if you have tried this already then it is usually an indication of a bad profile--best way to deal with it is to create a new profile. To do this reboot the PC, then if you are using roaming profiles rename the roaming profile folder on the server (do this before logging on again). Then logon to the PC with an admin user other than the user with the profile problem; then go to c:\users and rename that user's folder something like c:\users\user.bad. Then reboot the PC again and then logon as the user and let a new profile be created.

If you're using roaming profiles, then this is often a problem with the permissions to the roaming profile share or user's folder on the server.  Share permissions to the top-level shared folder have to be at least Modify, and NTFS permissions to the user's individual folder need to be Full.  Also, make sure that the user's .V2 profile folder exists before trying to log on.
