Possible Terminal Services problem

    A handful of partial profiles have appeared on a client's W2K GC in the
    "documents and settings" directory.

    The profiles belong to user accounts that are NOT administrator accounts.
    The profiles only have three subdirectories instead of the customary twelve
    subdirectories. The three directories are "Application Data", "Cookies" and
    "Local Settings". NTUSER.DAT, ntuser.dat.log, and ntuser.ini are also created.

    It is my understanding that user profiles should only appear on a W2K GC in
    the "Documents and Settings" directory as a result of a user logging on from
    the server keyboard, or by an administrator logging in via Terminal Services
    (which is in admin mode).

    Windows Update and the client's third party patch management software both
    report the server as fully patched.

    1) Is there any legitimate way that a non-admin user could create a profile
    on the server?
    2) If the profiles were created by a user using an exploit to elevate their
    privileges via Terminal Services, how would you manually check to see that
    the appropriate TS patches were actually fully installed?

    Thank you
