I'm presuming that the user in question is logging into a domain, not the local machine.
If not, DON'T follow these instructions.
On the problem computer, open the System part of Control Panel (Win+Pause/Break is the shortcut)
Click User Profiles (might take a while to load, if so, go get a coffee)
Check that the Profile in question says Remote
If it says local, double click it and try to change it back.
If you can't, make sure you have a copy of all the data on the server, then delete the local version
If they are a local user, then it's probably best to backup all their data and recreate the profile.
