I have a weird problem...first time I've seen this one.
User logs into PC (WIN7 64-bit) and it creates a new profile each time.
Desktop background is gone, doc's are gone, etc.
He has admin rights to his PC, so he is able to still access his doc's by going into c:\users\<his login name>.
If I login as local admin, I see his real profile out there, intact. I also see a series of Temp profiles with little or nothing in them.
User Profile Service is running and set to automatic.
Event log only shows one error: "Windows Search Service cannot load because "file already exists".
Restore point is not an option, won't go into why :-(
Fortunately he has admin rights to his PC, so he is able to still access his doc's by going into c:\users\<his login name>.
Another weird note....his Outlook profile still works and his mail is all there without needing to re-populate his mailbox??
If anyone has seen this before, any help is appreciated. thx
