This can be a little easier than it sounds, but it takes a quite a few steps. The profile names only get extensions like .domainname or .thiscomputer if there is already a folder in the profile folder under the username. The easiest way to recover the original profile is to log in as another username with admin rights and follow these steps:
BE CAREFUL NOT TO DELETE ANYTHING YOU NEED!!! If in doubt MOVE to a backup location instead of deleting
Remove any "new" profiles under the same username
Delete (or move) the "new" profile folders, so that there are no folders in the profile folder under the username you want
rename the profile folder of the username you want to keep - i.e. rename it to "OldUsername"
logout and log in as the username you want
logout and log back in as your alternate admin user
look in the profiles
folder, you should now see a folder with the original name
corresponding to the original username folder you renamed. If that
folder does not exist, something is not working right - you'll need to
give me more information before I can tell you what.
copy the contents (make sure you have your view settings set to show all files, including system files) from the renamed profile folder (OldUsername if you used my suggestion) to the newly created profile folder. Overwrite anything that exists in the folder.
Logout and log back in as the desired username. All settings should be restored.
These steps are dependant on continuance of profile foldernames. The "new' Profile
folder MUST be the EXACT name of the original. This is because many
items in the USER.DAT (user hive of the registry) point to folders by
name. If you don't get the foldername correct, the process will

If you are on Windows as indicated, you can rename a file by right-clicking on the file name in either a "My Computer" or a Windows "Explorer" window, click Rename, and then type in the name you wish it to be. Alternatively, you can click on the name and after a short pause, click a second time. This should basically "open up" the file name for editing within the file list you are looking at.

You cannot rename the user folder because it is a system folder.
You can go to user accounts in control panel and rename the user account from the 'old name' to new name'. Unfortunately this will be purely cosmetic, the account will still be seen by the system with 'old name'.
The only efficient solution is going into control panel/accounts and creating an new account with 'new name'. Then you transfer all data to 'new name' account and delete the old account.
