    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    That looks like a "keeper" Bob. Thanks for posting it. I don't have any un-needed profiles to check it out on, but I'll install it, add it to my "Utilities" desktop window and hope like heck I remember I've got it at some point in the future. (**)

    Loungers, please note on that web page that it DOESN'T mention Vista, so we have to assume that it's not valid with that OS.


    (**) A footnote of laugh against me is that I can't begin to tell you how many "utilities" I've downloaded and installed and later forgotten that I have them. The whole suite of SysInternals software is a good example "against" me!

    Edited to add: Don't make the same mistake I did, since I'm poking fun at myself this afternoon. The download link is at the BOTTOM of the page, and NOT this one:

    This is a resource kit tool. I'll have to check at work next week and see if it is the Windows 2008 Resource kit.

    DELPROF has been in resource kit (tools) since supplement 3 of the NT Resource Kit. The last one I have is in the XP and Server 2003 resource kits, not having Vista or Server 2008.

    You have to be very careful when using it, ensuring you always add the parameter /P - "prompt for confirmation before deleting each profile". Otherwise considerable unhappiness could occur...
