This solution is tedius, but works. I´m sure there is a better one out
there. =)

You must go to each workstation, logon as Administrator, or a user with
Administrator privileges.

Righ-click on MyComputer icon.
Click on Properties.
Then go to the User Profiles tab.
Select the user that you want to change de profile type.
Then click on the CHANGE TYPE button.
Then click on OK.
Click on OK again.

And thats all. Then logoff, and logon again. The user profile will be local
type instead of roaming.
If this doesn´t work for you, let me know.


PD: excuse my terrible english. =(
