Temporary user profile loaded instead or roaming profile

Temporary user profile always loaded or user profile was manually deleted, yep! I did this alot with XP (Server 2003) and always got away with it; not

  • Backup the registry using ccleaner first or export function from regedit.
  • reboot log on as local administrator on the loacl machine (not as a domain user if you do then reboot)
  • delete all domain profiles on the computer (not your local PC domain profiles though!)

then check in C:users that they have gone.

  1. To resolve this problem yourself, follow these steps:
    1. Delete the profile by using the Computer Properties dialog box. To do this, follow these steps:
      1. Click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties.
      2. Click Change settings.
      3. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
      4. Under User Profiles, click Settings.
      5. In the User Profiles dialog box, select the profile that you want to delete, click Delete, and then click OK.
    2. Click Start in run box type regedit in the Start search box, and then press ENTER.
    3. Locate and then expand the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionProfileList

  1. Right-click the SID that you want to remove, and then click Delete. (basically delete all the domain ones)
  2. Reboot then Log on to the computer and create a new profile.
