Windows 7: Delete User Profile

I work in a school and we have between 700 - 1000 user profiles on a Windows 7 machine. Windows 7 seems isn't handling this amount of users well [worse than XP]. I am unable to delete user profiles via the gui method as windows simply won't respond. Now if you delete a user out of the c:\users folder the next time the user logs on they are issued a temporary profile as you also need to delete the registry key for that user as well. From a school point of view, temporary profiles are brilliant. My question is, is there a way of making every network user a temporary user?

Will adding the active directory students groups to the local GUEST group make the profiles temporary?

Tries it while waiting and this seems to work just fine. I even crashed the machine while the user was still logged on and it tidied itself up. Anyone know of any pitfalls to this?

Delprof successor for Windows 7

I have written an inofficial successor to Delprof creatively called Delprof2. It works on all versions of Windows (XP/Vista/7/2003/2008/2008 R2), is syntax-compatible to the original and even more powerful.

Delprof2 is free to use commercially or otherwise.
