This is on a Windows 2000 unit. IBM Intellistation M-Pro.
All service packs and updated from Microsoft have been applied.
This week this problem stated.
The user have had user profile for several months.
This week when they log on okay. They log on
again and their profile is deleted and creates a new profile.
These user have user or power users right on this PC.
All administrator users profile are not effected on this PC.

I do not want to set all user with administrator rights.

I have checked Microsoft's about this and no results for this
problem.

I will not like rebuild this unit now.

Please help.
Thanks

Although you diddn't give a lot of info, here is a stab at it. Is it possible that the user(s) have been logging in to a domain, and someone accidentally changed the login option from the domain to the local system, or vise-versa. I know it sounds simple, but it could be the case. Question, do/does the user(s)have roaming profiles. Maybe there is a problem with the roaming profile configuration. Have the user accounts been transferred to another domain? Just some thoughts.

Here is something else you should check. When you have the system booted to the desktop. Open the properties for the hard drive. Select the Security tab. Make Certain that the SYSTEM account has full use of the hard drive. I have seen it where, for security reasons, this account was deleted from the properties of the drive. This means that the Operating system will not be able to write to the drive to create and maintain the profile.

This may not be your difficulty, but it was the answer for my problem. Check it out.

Best of luck.
