Windows 7 Professional Keeps Assigning a Temporary Profile To a Domain User

I have tried everything according to the web here.  I have a Windows 7 Professional Laptop joined to my domain.  It seems just one domain user is affected here for whatever reason.  Every time I log onto the domain I get the "You have been logged on with a temporary profile...."  I tried deleting all profiles in the Advanced System Properties, deleting all the users (except local admin) in the C:\users folder.  I always check the registry and there is no .bak listing in the profiles list.  I am using a Windows 2003 Server for Active Directory.

Can anyone help on this???

Backup then delete the original profile too.  Take the workstation off the domain then rejoin it.  Then login to recreate the profile.

Same result.  It does not like this user profile.  Every other profile works and this profile works fine on another desktop.

It sounds it's a registry issue. Have you tried to use any tool like delprof2 to see if it detects the stubborn profile?

In the registry, go to the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList key, and find the key below that that has the SID of the user; This is a key that starts with S-1-5-21-, and in the Value "ProfileImagePath" contains the username;

Make note of the Guid value, then delete the key, and the corresponding key with the Guid under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileGuid

Do the same for the ProfileList key that contains the path to the TEMP profile; Also delete the profile of the user under C:\Users; Also delete the "TEMP" profile.

@deroode:

When I log off that user and then go to the registry as another user the TEMP SID is removed from that registry section.  The only time I see it is when I am logged in as the broken user.  Should I follow your steps while logged in as the broken profile?

OK. Lesson learned here.  I had a .bat file mapping drives on the ADS server for this account.  I think what happened was the drives weren't mapping in time and since this was the first time logging onto this laptop with this profile it was causing it to crash.  I took off the .bat in the Login Script on the ADS, restarted the laptop and was able to log into the profile with no issues.

Thank you all for your help on this!

I figured out that the .bat file to map drives on the ADS server was hanging up and causing the profile to break.
