Just a tip.. 
If you have a pc with has problems, like loading only Temp profiles. 
Login as local admin. 
start regedit, and go here. 
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList 
Check every key here, and keep eye on the c:\users\......
and note the last part of the SID   ( like  S-1-5-..... -nr    ( -500 = Administrator ) 
Remove all .TEMP profiles from c:\users\ 
Remove al "faulty" profiles from c:\users\ 
Now goto this key: 
​HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileLoader
look at the GUID and find the fault SID S-1-5-..... -nr   within the GUID. 
Delete the problem ones. 
repeat this for this key. 
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileGuid
reboot your pc, login as local admin, reboot you pc. 
Login as user and voila, its working again. 
Still not working. maybe the profile service is crashing. 
That, you can find with google. 
This one, google shows a lot, but not the removing of the ProfileLoader and ProfileGuid part.
