Unable to load user profile

I know this has been discussed many times but I still haven't found the answer. Here is the problem I am having.

I have a fresh image on the machine that works without any problems on the other machines. When I join the domain and restart the computer and try to log on as the user to create their profile to transfer their settings, I get the error ""Windows cannot log you on because your profile cannot be loaded....." But, it will let me log on as the Administrator and it runs all the logon scripts associated with my Admin account. The users account in AD is setup correctly. I know this because I have verified it and when I put the old machine back on the network, the user can log into the domain without any issues. Also, the user can log into one of the other machines with the same image, so I can't say the image is corrupted with any certainty. I know there is something very simple that I am overlooking. What suggestions do you guys have?

In reply to: hi

For several reasons.
1. We don't know your problem.
2. What else to send than the link in post #2? And you already have that link.
3. We don't send mails. We only post here on the forums.

But be assured that now you were so friendly to post your email address it will be found by spammers. Be prepared to get a lot of mails for drugs, Casino's and equities from now on. If you want your post removed, please ask so by clicking the yellow triangle and asking us.
