Problems Logging in using a domain user

Last Modified: 2016-02-04
Hello, I have a problem with a user, let me tell you the whole story.
When I joined this computer to the domain it worked fine, but then I needed to do a system restore and after that it kept creating new profiles, jdoe.domain, jdoe.domain000. I logged in with the local account and deleted those users and respective folders, but now every time I log in with this user domain credentials it does not create a profile.
The message I get is:
"You have been logged on with a temporary profile, you cannot access your files and files created in this profile will be deleted when you log off. To fix this logoff and try logging on later."
Every time I log on and creates a new profile and I have to setup Outlook each time, however IT DOES NOT create a folder in Users.
How can I fix this, please help!
