    Strange problem:

    New HP Vectra XE310 with Win98 SE and Off. 97.

    Users have roaming profiles enabled.

    Some users log into the new XE310 and the display icons are all duplicated and the display almost unreadable.

    If they then log into an HP Brio BA410 ( Win98 Retail ) everything is fine.

    Not all users are affected - no connection between those that are and those that are not.

    Copying a working users USER.DAT ( who has logged onto an XE310 ) into the non-working profile works fine.

    Very annoying as the network is spread across 80 odd sites and the USER.DAT contains loads of user app. specific info.

    Any clues?!!!

    thanks and regards

    Sounds like you don't have the workstation set up correctly for profiles. Are they copying over to the local PC correctly and are all the other user settings copying over(wallpaper, screen saver)
    Do you have the passwords properties applet set so user profiles are set. Also check the users applet in control panel and check each one that has eben created.
