Temporary profile epidemic.

    Question

  • Hello everyone,

    Since the new year, we've had about 20-30 users from different companies, in different environment, log into temp profiles. We cannot for the life of us figure out what is happening. Domain/workgroup computers, no common windows or software update.

    Has anybody else been having the same problem?
