Windows cannot load profile

By gary_davies ·
I administer 3 small networks using Windows 2000 server and 2000 workstations.
2 of the networks use Mandatory user profile's stored on the local PC and the other uses a Mandatory user profile stored on the server. On the locally stored PC's I keep getting the following error message followed by "cannot load your profile*

Windows cannot copy file C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\4L6FOPMN\bands;dcove=o;art=ciara;gen=hip_hop_rap;pagename=artist;gateway=bands;section_1=az;section_2=ciara;zyg=;span=;demo=;era=;bps=vhigh;fla=6;sz=120x600;tile=2;ord[1].gif to location C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\4L6FOPMN\bands;dcove=o;art=ciara;gen=hip_hop_rap;pagename=artist;gateway=bands;section_1=az;section_2=ciara;zyg=;span=;demo=;era=;bps=vhigh;fla=6;sz=120x600;tile=2;ord[1].gif. Contact your network administrator.

Deleting the temp User profile (copy of the mandatory profile) created when users login solves the problem, but it soon returns. The problem does not occur on network where the profile is stored on the server. Can anyone help with this problem.

Run a scan on that system and see if that gif that is sitting in the Temporary Internet Files is infected with a worm or a virus.

first are the small networks workgroup? or domains?

the server is where? a workgroup? domain?

note: profiles are loaded depending upon the users account. if you want a mandatory profile for a user in a domain environment, you store the profile on a server and in Active Directory users and computers, user, user properties, profile, you specify the target profile to be loaded when the user logs on [which will follow the user to any computer he or she logs on to e.g. mandatory roaming profile]. If you want a mandatory profile to be loaded locally [when a user logs on locally] you create or change the ntuser.dat file to file. Storing the ntuser.dat file or .man file on the local machine for a domain account you have to configure AD users and computers, user, user properties, profile and map the path to the file on the local machine.
