Steps to force a user to have a temporary profile:
- Log on as an Administrative user.
- Delete profile folder for user from C:\Users
To resolve the issue, use Regedit. The list of profiles is maintained in:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileListEach profile has it's own key based on the SID of the user. To identify the key for the failing profile to delete look at the ProfileImagePath value. This value is the file path to the profile and contains the name of the user.
After you've identified the correct key, delete it. On next logon the user profile should be created and work correctly.
