    Re: WinServer08R2 disaster from renamed user profile

    Was the server a domain controller originally? (you say you uninstalled Active Directory so I am guessing it was)
    If so, the domain admin account no longer exists but since the profile does, you could try taking ownership and copying contents into your new profile (note do NOT copy the ntuser.dat file). This will get you partially back but registry settings etc will need to be reconfigured.

    This is an object lesson in NOT panicing and working through problems properly.
