Windows 7 keeps generating temp profiles


  • Hi Guys,
      I applied these reg keys to a couple of installs windows 7 installs to enable RDP & eable the admin shares i.e C$. Since enabling these when some users login the users are forced into a temp profile not their normal local profile(see error below).
    I have reverted the keys back to what they were previous but the problem persists. anyone have any ideas on what is causing it?

    'Setup Admin Shares'

    'Enable RDP'
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server]

    Log Name:      Application
    Source:        Microsoft-Windows-User Profiles Service
    Date:          17/11/2009 12:05:14
    Event ID:      1511
    Task Category: None
    Level:         Error
    User:          domain\chris
    Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off.

  • found a fix

    1.       Reboot

    2.       Login as local admin or other domain account with local admin rights

    3.       Backup affected users profile

    4.       Delete Affected users profile

    5.       Regedit

    6.       HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

    7.       Find SID for the user with corrupt profile & delete key

    8.       Reboot

    9.       Get user to log back in.
