When someone logs on to a different machine than they usually use, or sometimes even their own, they get a message "unable to load the locally stored profile". A limited generic profile loads and normally it is solved by just rebooting the computer. Today that's not working.

I've seen this a few times in the past , could be a corrupted profile, are you joining a domain ? If so, I would back up the users data then log in as the domain admin, delete the problem profile, then reboot and login as the user thus creating a new profile. Remember to backup their data first, (my documents/desktop/favorites/PST)

Doesn't that mean they would lose their profile that had everything they needed? It's still there with a date of yesterday, just not loading.

Yes, they would lose their current profile, that's why I stress that you must backup their data first before removing their old profile, once you create their new profile you must then copy their data back to their new profile.
