    Hello everyone,
    Could someone please try to help me with this issue? I have roaming profiles
    set up for 35 people, each having their own computer. All computers are
    working with this but one and it will work if started in safe mode. I have
    posted this before and have included the comments brought up in that
    posting. Thank you for all of your help in advance.

    Thank you,
    Matthew

    Hi

    - roaming profiles don't work in normal logon process?
    - Check permissions - Make sure that everyone as full access, then the
    system replaces the permissions with users.

    Everyone does have full access. In fact, like I had mentioned, it is only
    one computer with this issue. The user name works fine on other computers
    with the roaming profile.

    Thank you,
    Matthew

    AHHH... You're the computer guy.... :)

    tell me, when using different user accounts on that computer all users fail
    to download the profile from the server?

    All user profiles fail when logging in using normal mode. Also, I have
    checked for events and nothing appears relating to user login.

    Thank you,
    Matthew

    remove the computer account from the domain, delete the account from AD,
    format the machine, make a new installation, then add it again to the AD
    domain.

    I'm only saying this because I know (If you're ho I think) that you already
    tried a milion things, and none worked.

    I don't think I am the person that you think but I have tried a million
    things. But I haven't changed my name or anything but it is showing as Matt
    instead of Matthew since I brought the newsgroup into outlook express.
    Anyway, by what your saying here, you want me to uninstall the operating
    system and reinstall it while formatting. While reinstalling the operating
    system I should delete the computer account from AD and add it again once
    installation is complete. Am I right as to what you suggest I should try?

    Thank you,
    Matthew

    If you are in safe mode, you are not connected to the network, You are
    therefore using the local profile.

    Before rebuilding the computer, I would first try:

    1) log onto the workstation as a local admin
    2) Delete all the domain accounts from the local computer
    3) Reboot and try to log onto the domain

    If that failed, I would:
    1) Repeat steps 1 & 2 above
    2) Remove the computer from the domain
    3) Delete it from AD and DNS (if necessary)
    4) Add it back to the domain
    5) Reboot and try to log onto the domain

    If that fails, *then* I would consider rebuilding....
