Windows 7: roaming user prof. fails to sync on logoff and deleted files reappear

roaming user prof. fails to sync on logoff and deleted files reappear

Windows 7 Pro 64
Every time I log off I get the message across the splash screen that says roaming user profile failed to sync. Also, I cannot seem to permanently delete anything from any location on the C drive. I can immediately delete it just fine, and empty the recycle bin just fine. I usually shut the machine down for the night, and get the failed to sync roaming user profile message upon shutdown. Next morning when I log in all the files I deleted the previous day have reappeared in their original locations. Doesn't seem to matter where they are or what they are (media files, docs, PDFs, CAD files, images, etc. ALL FILES) as long as their original locations are on the C drive they come right back. This is getting ridiculous. Heellllllpppppppp! I cannot afford to nuke the drive and start over, too many apps to reinstall. I have to correct this as the downloads folder keeps getting bigger and bigger and I'm running out of space.
I'm on a small business network running Win Server 2003 for small business, with two machines running XP 32 and four running Win 7 Pro 64.\

Many thanks to whomever can solve this one.
