    users folders in windows 7

    We are in the process of upgrading to windows 7 and have come across a
    strange issue. We had an issue with someone's user profile so we tried to
    rename it and have the user log back in. At this time, a temp profile was
    created. The problem did not correct, so we moved all important information
    and deleted the user account. When the person logged back in, another temp
    folder was created.
    Has anyone run into this issue/problem yet?

    Me not. And you're unlikely to find some help in this forum (which is
    for .NET programming environment), you should try to find and ask in a
    windows 7 specific group.

    As Markus told you, you need to find a Windows 7 forum. There are no
    Microsoft public newsgroups for Windows 7. All support is via web forums
