We are now using XP Pro on our workstations and have
multiple users sharing the same PC. How can I set a
custom profile and have it shared with ALL users who log
onto this machine?

A little update on problem posted in Windows Profiles and Security.

As i said previously windows xp had created new profiles and no longer reads
and recognizes my original profiles. Those original profiles still located
in Documents and Settings.

This is what it looks like in Documents and Sttings

Alexey Semenov (original profile)
Administrator (original profile)

Administrator.Semenov (xp new profile) where semenov is a
computer name
Alexey Semenov2.Semenov (xp new profile) where semenov is a computer

I have changed the computer name to Alex and created a new profile
it sits and doc's and settings under

Alexey Semenov.Alex

So i assume computer recognizes those profiles based on computer name.
Judging by profile name original profiles are not under any computer name
and i can not leave computer name field blank, it has to be named.

Is there anyway to make xp recognize those old profiles, and log in using
those profiles? I am running XP professional with SP1

Thank u very much.

I am having a strange problem with setting up profiles on
new dell systems. I setup the profile and it saves the
settings. I can log into the domain with no problem and
the settings stay. About a week goes by and the user logs
in and all the settings have reverted to default. I end
up having to redo the profile all over again. Does anyone
have a suggestion on how to fix this problem? It happens
on several computers.

Please let me know if you have any ideas!!!

Thank you.
