JSI Tip 4283. Changes to your user profile is not saved at logoff?

When you change your profile and logoff, none of the changes are saved? There are no errors generated?

NOTE: If you add the user to the local Administrators group, the changes are saved.

One possible cause is that the user is NOT a member of the workstations local Users group.

If the user is NOT a member of any local group, they are considered to be a Guest. Guest profiles are deleted at logoff.

Add the users account to the local Users group:

1. Open a CMD prompt.

2. Type net localgroup Users "DomainName\UserName" /add
