Any chance that you have a logon script (or scheduled task) that is creating the second folder?

> after login with user , it create 2 user profile...

do you mean after logging in with a domain user? can you show what the user names look like? give an example please?



there is no login script to create second folder .

other user login , there is no problem

did the user explicitly choose domain name when logging in? such as DOMAIN\USER?
backup before you mess with registry..

log in to the local admin on the machine, change it to a workgroup, reboot
make sure you're viewing hidden files,
rename all the existing Domain User folders, to Name+.old or move them into a folder called OLD.
Clean up the registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
**look at folder locations and get rid of everything with a domain user account name in the path or .bak on the SSID*
rejoin domain.
