+    <h1 class="title">Configure the Default Profile</h1>
+    <p>A Windows profile is the desktop environment configured for a
+particular user. It contains various settings such as desktop colors,
+backgrounds, icon placement, and Windows Explorer settings. The default
+profile is a template profile that is used when a user logs on to a Windows
+computer for the first time. The default profile can be customized by the
+image creator.</p>

+<h3 id="create-a-profile-configuration-account">Create a profile configuration account:</h3>
+<li>While logged on as <strong>Administrator</strong>, create a local Windows
user account
+named <strong>VCLProfile</strong> and add it to the <strong>Administrators</strong>
+<li>Configure the profile:
+    <ol type="a">
+    <li>Log on as <strong>VCLProfile</strong>
+    <li>Make desired profile, desktop, and application changes
+    <li>Log out<br/>
+    <strong>NOTE</strong>: If you just disconnect but do not log out, 
+    you will not be able to complete step 7 below.
+    </ol></li>
+<h3 id="copy-the-profile-to-default-user">Copy the profile to "Default User":</h3>
+<li>Log back on as <strong>Administrator</strong></li>
+<li>Rename the <strong>C:\Documents and Settings\Default User</strong>
directory to

+<li>Open the <strong>Control Panel</strong></li>
+<li>Open <strong>System Properties</strong></li>
+<li>Select the <strong>Advanced</strong> tab</li>

+<h3 id="clean-up-the-profile-configuration-account">Clean up the profile configuration
+<li>Delete the <strong>VCLProfile</strong> user</li>

+<p>You can then create another account and log in using it to make sure your
+profile settings take affect for new users. Be sure to delete it once
+you're done testing.</p>
+<h1 id="windows-7-and-windows-server-2008">Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008</h1>
+<p>Microsoft does not support copying profiles under Windows 7 and Windows
+Server 2008.  The "Copy To" button is grayed out for all profiles except
+the default profile.  The only supported method is built into Sysprep and
+this method is itself very problematic.  The following steps are not
+supported or recommended by Microsoft but seem to work:</p>

and you want to start
+over with a new account, delete the existing account and then create a new one:

+1. Copy the customized profile folder using the Windows profile copying
+<em>Note: Windows 7 only allows its built-in profile copying utility to be
+used to copy the default profile, not profiles of other user accounts. The
+profile you customized now resides in the default profile location
+(C:\Users\Default) so the utility can now be used to make a copy of it.</em>

+<li>Open <strong>Control Panel &gt; System and Security &gt; System</strong>
+<li>Click <strong>Advanced system settings</strong> on the left
+<li>Click the <strong>Settings...</strong> button under User Profiles

+    <li>Click <strong>Change</strong> under Permitted to use
+    <li>Enter <strong>Everyone</strong> and click OK
+    <li>Click OK
+    </ol>
+1. Replace the original customized profile directory with the one created by
+the Windows profile copying utility<br/>
+<em>Note: C:\Users\Default contains the original customized profile.  The same
+profile also resides in C:\Users\Default Copy.  The Default Copy folder is
+the one which has had the Windows profile copying utility transformations
+applied to it.</em>
+<ol type="a">
+<li>Open <strong>Windows Explorer</strong>
+<li>Delete the C:\Users\<strong>Default</strong> folder
+<li>Rename the folder: C:\Users\<strong>Default Copy</strong> -&gt;
