In EE Foxluv refers to method 1 from Link
Which I already tried and did not work
In EE article recommends to delete the ProfileImagePath Join to Workgroup and Join back to the Domain.
Did so and did not help
In EE article Will Szymkowski recommends to delete %systemdrive%\users\ folder by open cmd/ sysdm.cpl/ advance tab /under User Profiles click the Settings button/ all profiles located in there delete them, as recommended On
I deleted all but the temp Profile cannot be deleted because it is in use. Did not help.
In EE article Philip Elder recommends that if Foxluv solution does not work that means user profile is really corrupted and Operating System is not reading it properly. So, run the check disk for partition which is having user profile.
I did this and did not help.
He suggest logion as a DIFFERENT admin. Rename the folder C:\Users\Admin to C:\Users\Admin.123. Make sure there are no folders named C:\Users\MTAdmin (upper and lower case DOES NOT matter). Again CRITICAL – reboot. He refers to article

After so much effort to trouble shoot I came to the conclusion you suggest. But if it can be fixed it would not be the right thing to do. So I'm happy to hear that sometimes in this case there is nothing to do so I'll go back to a backup without a guilt feeling
