Corrupt profiles? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have several Windows XP Pro machines that have developed the notice of corrupt profiles this week.  All of the machines log into a Windows 2008 R2 Standard server.  These corrupt messages are received when the users attempt to log in each morning.  The machines have been on overnight, just logged out.  If the machines are restarted, they log in to their correct profiles properly.  This started this week and it is hard to believe three machines on one network would experience the same issue.  Each of the machines is protected by AVG enterprise AV software.  We have determined there are issues on other machines related to that product.  Is there any known reason for a good profile to exhibit this behavior?  I have seen lots of articles over the years related to corrupt profiles and it appears Microsoft's standard recommendation is to create a new profile.  Why is there no tool to repair a profile?  Why is there no backup of profiles similar to restore points.  It seems it would only be a function of backing up the NTUser related info to accomplish this.  Anyone have any suggestions about this particular sequence of events?
