Default Profile

Hello all,
This is a weird one and I am not sure what to do.
I have a computer on an AD domain.  Very simple domain but that shouldn't be the issue.
I have two users that are setup on the computer in question that are domain users.  I went to add two more users (and I made them administrators of the computer) and the following happened:
1)  I went to sign in as the user on the computer and the computer came up and said that it was using a default profile for me.  
2)  No profile was created under c:\users
3)  No registry entry was made under the HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version/Profile List for the new user.  there are entries for the two users I added to this computer two months ago and the default user but none for this new user.
I tried to add two other users that were never added to this computer and I get the same thing.  I am able to add these users to the computer right next to it all day long with none of this.
Since it does not create a profile nor creates any registry entries (inluding the dreade.bak entry) what next should I do?
Thanks,
Kelly W.

Yes and all I get is the 1511 error in the system logs.
Yes I did a regular warm boot, a cold boot, and then a cold boot where I unplugged the power cable for 2 minutes.

I actually solved this issue.  What I found out that the c:\users\default folder and all sub folders had an issue.  So I deleted these folders then copied them from a known good computer.  Lo and behold the new user accounts for the computer worked correctly.

Found out that the c:\users\default folder and subfolders were corrupt.  Deleted these and then copied them from a known working computer and it works.
