You have been logged on with a temporary profile

This is annoying. My domain-joined Windows 7 machine kept showing this error upon login and I couldn't save any new profile.
On the Event Viewer, I saw these 2 errors (Event 1511 and 1515)


Initially, I thought my roaming profile was corrupted. But re-building the profile did not solve the problem. The same error still appear until I saw this Microsoft KB post.

I enumerated through the registry records on
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

Instead of just removing the sid.bak records, I removed all user registry records. In effect, it would force a rebuild of all local user profiles that would be synced from the central user profiles on the network share.
