    I saw this at a client site the other day. I was logged in on their
    DC/Exchange server and saw there were two administrator profiles. One with a
    status of backup and the other with a status of, I think, temporary.

    The profile I was logged in as "administrator" corresponded to \Documents
    and Settings\Temp. I installed uphclean to address the event log 1000 I was
    seeing.

    My assumption is something happened to the Admin profile (got corrupted)
    which was why the second profile was created. After installing uphclean and
    checking again a half hour later the second profile was gone and the Temp
    folder was also gone.

    My question is what caused the second profile to be cleaned up and the temp
    folder to be deleted if it wasn't the UPHclean service?

    Hi
    Backup the profile, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
    NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList, identify the admin profile in the machine,
    delete it (backup-export it first if you want), then try again.

    Thanks Jorge,

    I get what you are saying but I'd like to post my question again:

    My question is what caused the second profile to be cleaned up and the temp
    folder to be deleted if it wasn't the UPHclean service?

    UPHClean monitors the computer while Windows is unloading user profiles and
    solves unload issues.
