Hello,

I have a 2008 R2 server that is exhibiting some strange issues. First off for another user and myself, when we right click on the desktop and go down to New, all we see there is (Empty). Another weird thing is that the recycle bin appears empty but always displays the option to empty the recycle bin. One more strange thing is that I cannot lock the task bar. The option never gets checked off. A few coworkers can however do all of these things with no issues. I have tried deleting a problem user's local profile and had them log back in to find the strange behavior. Also, I am getting event ID 1542 in the event logs stating: Windows cannot load classes registry file.
DETAIL - The system cannot find the file specified. I have run sfc /scannow, restarted and the same issue remains. See attached images. Has anyone out there run across a fix for this? Thanks for your time and input!

I have also tried the following:

Disable the "User Profile Service".
Reboot.
Log on with local admin account.
Remove the problematic profiles.
Remove reference to the specific problematic profiles from registry at:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
Log off
Log on with local admin account.
Set "User profile Service" to start automatically.
Reboot
Log back on as problematic account and changes have been saved.
