Windows 7: Setting up user accounts

This is why I usually prefer to leave the user profiles in their default locations instead of moving them. You just never know when something may not like the new location.

Double check to see if the IE temp file below has the correct location to where you moved it. If not, then click on Move to change it's location.

As a test, you might also see how it works using Firefox.

But if you leave the user profiles in the default locations how do people keep all data in a seperate partition, which i believe is common practice?

I usually keep backups of the data on a separate HDD to be safe, but I suppose that you could move the individual user folders instead of the entire user profile folder instead since you are having that issue with the user profile moved.
