Windows 7: Registry Entry to delete specific User Profile entries

Registry Entry to delete specific User Profile entries

I work for a University as a Lab Manager where we have over 300 computers running Domain Profiles. We have begun updating from XP to 7 and started to notice TEMP profiles being created. I have figured out how to resolve the issue by going to the registry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurentVersion\ProfileList

and deleting the strings that have .bak at the end. What I am looking for now is a way to delete these files as an administrator through our management service Altiris. So basically I am looking for a script that would delete only profile entries that have a .bak at the end. Does anyone have an idea on how to, or now a guide on how to, accomplish this? Thank you.

A simple batch script can do the job

@echo off
title BAK Removal
del /s /f c:\*.bak
pause >nul
(if I have understood you, sorry if it is wrong, the path can be adjusted for your specific needs)

Thanks! I will give that a shot on a test machine to see if it worked!
