It is the case that the new profile works except that a few things are not there like; firefox and her bookmarks and Outlook 2010, just to name two of those. So would I copy over the the 'old' profile to the new one?
Not that I'm going to do that, just as a question. I'll leave it up to the IT's.

I would copy only the data she needs and no settings which can be corrupt.

Reinstall any programs that are not available to the new profile.

Once you're sure everything is there you can delete the old profile, placing its files on the desktop for awhile so you have access to them until you're sure you have everything.
