The only reliable answer I know is: from a backup tape.

Apparently this profile was corrupted 6 months ago during the reign of the last sysadmin, and he let it be that way so the guy couldn't use his computer...I'd like to fix it...maybe I'll have to create a whole new one for him? Thus, we have no goodbackups.

What is the problem with the profile? I just usually recreate them. I do back them up on the local machine first, so that I can restore the outlook signature, internet explorer favorites and any files they have in the personal folder.

Fixing theNTUSER.DAT is not usually worth it.
