    Hi All,

    I really hope someone can help!

    I have approximately 150 users on a Windows Server 2003 system all using
    Roaming Profiles across AD (NOT using Terminal Services!).

    If I login as ONE particular user, the login script fails to start, but her
    desktop shortcuts are loaded (even if I delete the Local Profile
    first), it looks like the profile is only "part loading". NO ONE else
    has a problem....only this one user is affected.

    If I log the same user onto another machine, I get exactly the same problem
    (we build all machines from a standard "ghost" build)....

    If I create a new TEMP user in the same OU as the "faulty" user, that works this purely a "corrup" profile or am I missing something obvious?

    I've checked RSOP Results, forced a Group Policy update, etc., all with no

    The other strange thing is ..... if I add the user to "Domain Admins" then
    the login script runs (implying a permissions problem), but she doesn't get
    the "RUN" command on the start menu.

    If I remove her from "Domain Admins" and leave her in "Domain USERS", then
    the "RUN" command is shouldn't be according to the

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi, and thanks for the reply!

    I've checked permissions on the "user$" (i.e. \\server\user$\
    folder and all looks fine.

    If I run the login script MANUALLY it works fine.

    If I make them a member of Domain Admins, the script runs, but the Policy
    doesn't appear to "apply".

    I'm just running through the "ldifde" procedures, and will get back to you
    in the morning.

    Thanks again for all your help so far!

    Hi, and thanks for the reply.

    I'll try and clarify....

    Logon Script is defined in the Group Policy, but Desktop Settings (in terms
    of Shortcuts, Apps) are pulled from the users individual profile. The
    Desktop Configuration (i.e. Start Menu Options) ARE pulled from the GPO...

    I'll run through the rest of your suggestions today, so thanks again for the
