Why do profiles become corrupt when switching offices?

We are running WINS 2003 SP2 across a three office domain. Three servers, three offices, pretty simple. Each office has their own file server and exchange server. People go from one office to the other (usually two or three times a week they travel back and forth). Usually there is no problem, but occasionally their profiles become corrupt. You know its the click on everything and it says you have no permissions to access this resource, programs wont run, cant access control panel, etc. Is there any reason why this would happen so frequently? Is it something hidden in the registry? application data? I'm losing it here having to reset profile every other week. Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are they using desktops at each location or are they using laptops they carry back and forth?

Are you using roaming profiles? We are talking about User Profiles, right?

    Are there any errors in the server event log when this happens. If so, it should be at the time of login. I would start there. This is one of those things that has 1000 different possible answers.
