Every time that you log on to a Windows Vista-based computer that is connected to a domain, a temporary user profile is created.
When you log off the computer, the user profile is deleted.
This behavior usually occurs because the account that you use to log on to the computer is a member of one or more of the following groups:
If this is a school/work computer then this is most likely the way the NetAdmin has set it up.
If this is your home computer then a temporary user profile is issued each time an error condition prevents the user's profile from loading.
You may encounter profile issues if you log on with a user in the Guests group.
You need to remove the user in question from the local Guests or "Domain guests" group and that should do it.
1. Click Start
2. Right click Computer and Select Manage
3. Select Local Users and Groups > Groups
4. Double click Guests
5. Check if the user that is having the issue is a member of the Guests group
6. If so, remove the user from the Guests group
7. Log off the workstation and log back on
8. Verify the profile is now local
Try following these steps and check if it helps:

d. Locate the following registry subkey:
e. Under the ProfileList subkey, delete the subkey that is named SID.bak.
Note SID is a placeholder for the security identifier (SID) of the user account that is experiencing the problem.
The SID.bak subkey should contain a ProfileImagePath registry entry that points to the original profile folder of the user account that is experiencing the problem.
f. Exit Registry Editor.
g. Log off the system.
h. Log on to the system again.
After you log on to the system, the profile folder is re-created

1. Use SFC / SCANNOW command to help you detect and fix any corrupted or missing system files.
1) Go to Start menu, expand "All Programs" - "Accessories" - "System Tools", right-click "Command Prompt" in the pop-up menu, select "Run as administrator", then input "SFC / SCANNOW" without quotation marks and press Enter.
2) When the "SFC / SCANNOW" command is running, this command will scan every corner of your system, and repair the missing or corrupted files.
2. Shift to another administrator user, if you don't have one, please create a new administrator account and log in.
3. Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings folder, backup the data of your original corrupted profile, then delete the corrupted profile and all the temp profiles.
4. Open Registry Editor (type "Regedit" without quotation mark in the start menu blank and open it), search for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList, under the profileList subkey, delete the key named SID.bak.
5. Restart your computer; you will be able to log in the normal profile again.
