    Since we came back in September I've been getting reports from Staff saying that all their settings have gone from their PC - Outlook settings/Sigs, Pinned taskbar/start menu items (we are using Windows 7)
    When I check the Pcs i am seeing a lot of this:

    username
    username.DOMAIN
    username.DOMAIN.000
    username.DOMAIN.001
    etc
    etc

    When I look in it there are random files that haven't been deleted - its not just limited to NTUSER.DAT

    It's affecting the kids as well, but since they cannot customise their settings, is not a big deal other than loads of profile folders - I have added them all to the Domain Guests group which removes their profile at logoff, but this doesn't help for staff..
    I have set a few staff up on Roaming profiles so that most of their settings are saved to the sever, but I would rather not be using them

    Also not an option for staff is DELPROF.. not too sure about UPHClean - heard its in Beta for win7 and not sure if it deletes the profile

    I have no idea why its started as there hasn't been any new software or any majopr policy changes made to the Domain.
    We had that exact problem, what was happening was the profiles were attempting to be deleted (I think it was a GPO setting) and failing. When the user logged back in it failed to let them use the half deleted profile so created a new one. I will look back through my posts to see how we solved it!
