Actually, it sounds to me like he is trying to logon to a domain, I would have to guess that the admin or whoever controls Active Directory simply renamed the account from user1 to user2, this would explain the recreation of the user1 profile, the admin should of created a separate user2 account, then logon as user2 on the computer so the new profile would be created, the admin then can use special Active Directory tools to copy the complete profile from user1 to user2.
I don't know if it would work in this case, but the admin can change the path of the profile in Active Directory, it can be done on a local non-domained XP Pro so I know it can be done in A.D. as well.
Remember, Domain policies and settings completely override the local policy settings when logged in to a domain.
The only real problem that I have with being an I.T. Tech is that I can't use the excuse:
"Sorry, I don't do windows."
