Temporary profile creates in Windows 7

I had a user who logs in with a domain account and creates a temporary directory every time he logs in. This is what I did that fixed it :

1. Log on to the system by using an administrative user account other than the user account that is experiencing the problem.
2. Back up all data in the current user’s profile folder if the profile folder still exists, and then delete the profile folder. By default, the profile resides in the following location: %SystemDrive%\Users\UserName, you could just rename it something different in the same folder.
3. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
4. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
Locate the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
5. 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. You would delete the SID.BAK with an issue :

6. Exit Registry Editor.
7. Log off the system.
8. Log on to the system again.
