Desktop Profile not saved on Log off - Server 2003 and Vista.

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Administration' started by Richard Horne, Jul 10, 2009.

  1. Hey guys,

    Got a bit of a problem with one of the PCs on our network.

    We have a network run from a Windows Server 2003 server. One of our users
    has Windows Vista Business on his PC and every time he logs off, his desktop
    profile, i.e. the icons and shortcuts he's saved onto his desktop, are lost.
    Once he logs back on again, an old setup is loaded and the new shortcuts lost.

    Any ideas on how to stop this from happening and force any changes he makes
    to his desktop setup to be remember?

  2. Have you verified that the user's profile is set as a local profile,
    and not as a roaming profile?
