At my newly aquired work as a IT guy I've run into an issue with deleting local user profile data on roaming profiles. Whenever I delete a profile on a local machine (I do it the proper way through "userprofiles", of cause), the next time the user tries to log on to the computer it creates a TEMP profile. Now I know the regedit solution to the problem (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList and delete the .bak file for the user), but firstly that doesn't always work for me, and secondly it's not a very permanent solution. In the specific issue I have in front of me right now, the reg entry for the user doesn't even exist. I've read that I might have something to do with profiles on Win7 being in folders called "USER.V2", whereof the ".V2" part is not specified in the AD. Although it's not specified, the roaming profiles worked perfectly when a user logged on to new machines before the local data was deleted, so I can't see how this could be the issue. Perhaps the ntuser file might be the issue?
Are there any admins who have any ideas as to what might be causing this and how it can be solved? Would be really cool if I could fix this god-aweful problem once and for all.
Thanks in advance!
