Windows 7: Possible corrupt user account on W7 Pro 32k domain PC

Possible corrupt user account on W7 Pro 32k domain PC

Here are the specs:
W7 Pro 32K PC
Domain-Joined

Here is the problem:
I had to delete a User Account, so I did so by first removing the account/profile and then deleting the user's folder.

After a Restart, I logged back in as the Admin, re-added that user's profile, did a Switch User and logged in as the user. Upon "preparing your desktop for first time use", I recieved an error message in the lower righthand side of the screen that said "You've been logged on with a temporary profile. Any files and folders will not be saved".

I logged off the user account, logged back in as the user and the same error message came up. I also tried another Restart but each time I attempt to login as that user, I get the error message. Additionally, the user's folder is not listed as an account on the PC; it is showing as "TEMP".

Is there any chance that this proble could reside on the server as opposed to the local PC? I am currently in the process of doing a clean install, but have never run into this problem before and thought to ask everyone here.

Thanks.....

Goto HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Currentversion\Profilelist

Can you post a screenshot of the SIDs shown there...

I just went ahead and did a clean install on the PC. After performing the clean install, the problem was resolved. Thank you though....

Ok.

Well, next time generaly all you have to do is update the SID in the registry for the user profile path and it would be fixed.
