Has anyone found a workaround or Registry fix for the 'Copy to" option in the "User Profiles" which is grayed out for all users except the Default Profile, so that we can copy one profile to another as we did in XP.

4. There's no way to copy User Profiles (except the Default User profile — see below for more info).
"For #4 above, the Microsoft tech-support engineer told us Microsoft's stance is that user profiles shouldn't be copied all the way down through Windows 2000. So with Windows 7 you just can't. One workaround could be to use Microsoft's USMT (User State Migration Tool). [See Microsoft's User's Guide to USMT.] But this is primarily to move user data from one computer to another, not to copy user profiles from one profile to another on the same computer
