I’ve gone ahead and already added it to our domain, and I’ve signed onto it using multiple user accounts that were created in our Active Directory. My question is, how can I go about deleting those Domain User Accounts, Profiles, and Files off of this Windows 7 computer? I’ve already made the mistake of deleting the user folder in the C:\Users folder, just to find out that if I deleted a user and tried to sign back on as that user (thinking it would create a new profile folder in C:\Users), it created a temporary profile.
In the past when using XP all I would normally have to do is delete the user profile folder in C:\Documents and Settings and I was able to sign back in as that user and have a new profile created.
I hope this makes sense!
Open control panel and double click the system icon. On the left side click Advanced System Settings
. On the dialog box that pops up right in the middle of the Advanced Tab
is user profiles. Click the settings button
. From here you can high light the profiles you would like to delete.
Now to fix the temp. profile issue. User Profile Error - Logged on with a Temporary Profile - Vista Forums
The instructions are the same for Vista and Windows 7
