Can't delete a user profile

Guest

I believe that I have a corrupted user profile that I am having problems
deleting. I have logged on to the computer using the local administrator
account. Then I go to the Advanced tab of Computer\Properties and click the
User Profile Settings button. The profile I want to delete is a
<domain>\<user name> profile. The delete button is disabled. The profile
I'm wanting to delete is a member of the domain admins group which is, in
turn, a member of the local administrators group of my computer. I thought
that might be causing the problem so I removed the domain admins group from
all of the local computer groups, but the delete key is still disabled. Any
suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong??

Thanks

Reboot the PC then try again as the Local Administrator.

The reboot did the trick, David. Thanks. I ran across another thread
somewhere that said that logging out of one profile (the corrupted one) and
in to another (local administrator) without rebooting leaves some "residue"
of the first profile that prevents being able to delete it, but that a reboot
takes care of it. So I tried that and it did work.

Thanks again,
Mike
