Windows 7: How do I remove User.V2 profile?

How do I remove User.V2 profile?

I've upgraded my desktop system from XP to Vista then to Win 7 Home Premium and now have the infamous User.V2 profile which I would like to get rid of. I've searched for information on how to do this but all of the information I've found is way above my pay grade. I'd appreciate simple answers to the following questions that even a technophobe like me can understand:

1) Is it OK to remove the User.V2 profile?
2) Simple, but complete, step-by-step instructions on how to to remove it?

This is a home system, I share some files with a Win 7 laptop via a wireless home network but do not connect to any other networks.

I wait for replies with eager anticipation.

Thanks Jacee but the document you directed me doesn't exactly provide simple answers capable of being understood by a technophobe.
