log on as administrator (or another user with privelages) and copy ALL of the offending user's documents (the files INSIDE of my documents...not the folder) and anything else that is in that user's profile that the others can't access over to a folder on the c drive....delete the offending user from controll pannel as well as their folder under documents and settings...restart and create the user again...then move those files back over

Sounds good to me, I will do that. Question, is there any other folder you think I should copy besides: C:\Documents and Settings? Any other locations where data of each individual user are stored? Don't want to delete anything I might need later on. Thank you.

anything (in theory) saved in a folder not located in documents and settings\username should be public...there MAY be some files for certain programs (config files) that may reside somewhere in ther but it's hard to say without knowing

I was copying the files from my old profile to the new one, but it was not working. Along with the files I copied something that causes computer not to finish the shutdown. Same old story...brand new profile. I am giving up on that. What do you think I should do to make my updates work properly?
