You are logged into a Temporary Profile

Shortly my new syspreppted virtual machine say’s “You are logged into a temporary profile.” WFT?

After a short search with my search engine of choice I found a solution for this on the Windows 7 IT Pro Forums. Detailed information about user profiles can be found on About User Profiles.

So this has been caused because I used this machine with the same domain account before I had sysprepped it.

In short:
Search user profile at
and delete it.
Open the registry editor and search for the profile with the corresponding SID at registry key
and delete it.

Restart and try to log on. Problem should be solved.
