Can't create a new user account (xp won't let me)

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.newusers (More info?)

When I create a new account and try to log on as that new account, I get a
little pop-up "Windows Cannot Load the Users Profile But Has Logged You On
with the Default Profile for the System" and it is basically a blank user
account with nothing in the My Documents ie. My Pictures, My Music, no
shared folder on C: etc... and nothing in Documents and settings, ie.
Application data, Local Settings, etc... and nothing will load, Task Manager
says only 4 processes open, no explorer etc...
I have been to these two places below but no help, the "remedy" is for
windows 2000 pro and windows xp pro, I have Windows XP Home SP1 on a new
network (I am holding out as long as I can before having to do SP2)

    See if this helps: "Error Message: Windows Cannot Load Your Profile
    Because It May Be Corrupted"
