How to fix instant sign in/signing out on Windows profiles

After Windows 10 updates, the domain user is not able to log into the Windows PC. When the domain user is signing in there is an immediate signing out message. 

I can login with domain admin credential. I copied the affected domain users in ADUC and was able to login with that new user.

I have successfully taken these steps but still get the instant signing out.

This seems like the ntuser.dat for this specific user is corrupt.  How would I replace the bad ntuser.dat with s good one?  Can I copy a ntuser.dat from the default user profile on another PC with same version/build of Windows 10?  
Or, since I can create new users (both domain and local) successfully, can I just copy the ntuser.dat from the default profile on this PC and replace the one in the affected profile?

If the user can log onto other machines without problems, preferably a machine they haven’t ever logged onto before, then it’s a corrupt user profile- just rename the old directory and get them to log on again, the system should recreate a clean profile for them

Thanks I'll try that when I'm on site tomorrow (Sunday)
What is the setup? Lcal profiles, roaming or are you using fslogix?

Depending on which, removing the ntuser.dat and .log on login, the system will recreate them.

Corruption often occurs if the same profile is used across workstation and server versions.

If roaming, did you set profike versioning?
