User can't login original profile it creates temp profile.

by savindrasingh In reply to User can't login original ...

The reason for cration of a TEMP profile is the current user profile is corrupt. If the user is using a roaming profile then ask the user to logoff and then rename the local copy User profile (on users PC) and the server copy of user profile (on Profile server) at the same time Keep the user logged off during this process. Then ask the user to logon. A new copy of user profile will be created. Normally the important things which user will find missing are Desktop items and Favorites. You can copy these two items from users old profile and paste it in users new profile. Make sure that you copy only these two items else the new profile may also get corrupt.

If this is a standalone PC then logon with another user account with admin previlages and rename the old (corrupt)user profile by renaming the "C:\Documents and Settings\username" folder. Logoff/restart and then logon with that user name. Copy the desktop and Favorites as mentioned earlier.

If you didn't set the User profiles manually then there is no need to turn it off. It can be verified by checking the user properties in Active Directory console.

Just try to rename the user profile on local PC by logging on with a different user account and then logon again.
