Sounds like your users are getting the default user profeil rather than
their own.  Are you using the "domain admin users"?  Also check under the
HKEY_USERS hive and see if it actually lists the .DefaultUser as well as a
SID number for the current logged in domain user.

How were the user profiles generated ( automatically or manually )?  Have
they ever worked?

So many questions....back to finishing this paper....sign....
