Reset active directory user account

We are moving to Windows 10 and have removed roaming profiles and numerous other group policy settings for these users. The problem is that many settings (including none of the built in apps appearing in start menu) don't apply and we are having very strange behavior throughout the interface. Creation of a completely new account in AD in the same OU as the moved account works flawlessly.

So there must be settings for this user held up somewhere that need to be "reset". Is there anyway to perform a complete reset on a users account without completely deleting them from AD and then recreating them?

Clearly there is an issue here with the roaming profiles still being enabled somehwere, that is what it sounds like, how else could the profile be different(no apps in the start menu you say).

once logged in to user profile, open up command prompt

type cd\
type gpresult /h test.htm

you will probably have some gpo hidden somewhere taking effect.

besides the gpresult you can also do set command and make sure the dc that the policies are configured on is the dc that the workstation is authenticating to.  If not may be a replication issue between dc's, if only one dc and gpresult shows the policies not getting updated properly try running gpedit on a workstation and setting the computer\administrative templates\ system \ logon and set the always wait for network to enabled  or admin cmd prompt and run gpupdate /force to manually update policies
