    I have about 45 users in two different domains. One is AD and the other is NT domain. There is one user who can log in to his computer with the correct domain account and password for the NT domain. This allows him to log in, but gets the wrong user profile. Looking into this, I have found that there are two profiles on the computer with the same name

    user.domain &

    All attempts to move or delete the user.domain.000 folder, result in the recreation when that user logs in again. I have found where I can modify the registry to point to the profile desired when this user logs on, but am weary of making this change because it can cause other apps to fail based on how they are configured when installed.

    I am looking for any kind of suggestions on how to go about fixing this issue of mine. Any thoughts or suggestions on what to look for as to why this would happen would also be appreciated.

    Oh yeah the computer is running Win2k and it is in the NT domain. There are no other users in this domain that are having this problem (at least not yet). It does have an antivirus app running that is up to date, and ran last night with no issues.

    Thanks in advance for any help.
