user profile corrupt in Windows XP and Vista leaving "user" and using "user.DOMAIN"
I'm having weird issue with some of my user Windows XP and some of them using Vista that they seems to lost their personal profile in their workstation
the reason previously was the user taking too long in the "Applying computer settings..." therefore I manage to
1. login using local admin (offline) and then disable all of the startup items using MSCONFIG.
2. reset the AD domain passsword
3. the user login into the AD domain.
and we were surprised that all of the settings are all gone ? back to the default (including outlook 2007 start to download the email from server again).
and then when i look into the C:\Document and Settings i found out that there are two directories
user --> was more than 300 MB
user.DOMAIN --> newly setup so the size only 13 MB+
how can i go back to the old profile ?
none of the user is using roaming profile.
single domain only.
