I had this exact thing happen on my standalone PC the other day!
I only have one active profile on the PC (besides Administrator), and all my user settings have taken me over three years to accumulate. - I was "gutted"!!
Luckily, I make regular backups of my "ntuser.dat" file in my profile's folder, and was able to restore it, overwriting the affected "ntuser.dat" profile, and all was back to normal on reboot. (Did this using Recovery Console).
I believe it was caused by one part of the boot / logon process working faster than another part of it, causing the profile's data file [ntuser.dat] to become "locked by another process".
I have the following registry setting, so I was surprised at such an occurrence, as I believe that having this setting would make the possibility of such a thing happening even more remote.:-
It had never happened before, and I don't expect it to ever reoccur again.
Cheers, Tim Meddick, Peckham, London. :-)

I am having the same issue with "some" users. We have 300 local computers
that were converted to AD. This was not a problem. We have 700 remote
computers converted to AD. We have a hand full having this issue. My fear is
that the number is growing. I read a post that this will happen if there are
different User SIDs for the same user name after creating to domain user
profile. I verified that there are 2 SIDs for the affected user. I deleted
the earlier one and have not had the issue since.
With 700 remote computers this would be large task. I need to know what is
triggering this to happen.
It seems they leave it powered on at all times. Just logging in and
out as needed
