When you attempt to log on to a Windows 2000 Professional workstation as a domain user for the first time, you may receive the following error message:
You receive this error message if the the Default User folder, in the Documents and Settings folder is missing.
If the folder is missing, log on as the administrator, and create a new folder in the Documents and Settings directory named "Default User" (the folder can remain empty).
This new Default Users folder inherits the default permissions from the Documents and Settings folder of the parent.
After you create the new folder, log off, and then attempt to log on again as the new domain user that was receiving the error message. The logon process should now succeed.
