Profiles

By caley4m ·
In NT4 Workstation is there a way to remove\delete more than one user profile at a time thru User Profiles,the registry or software? I have 82 student lab PC's I need to clean up that have about 100 profiles on each PC.

You can clear out the C:\WINNT\PROFILES subfolders you want removed...

The previous answer was OK as far as it goes.

Check:
HKLMSOFTWAREMICROSOFTWINDOWS NTCurrentVersionProfileList

This key contains a list of keys that are all of the profiles created on that machine. The username is a string value in each key(right pane). Make sure you don't delete your own or the Administrator's! You still can only delete one at a time but it's still faster than through the Profiles tab on the System Properties sheet. Then you can delete all of the users profile directories in WINNT\Profiles. Again, watch out for the Administrator's and your own!

Have fun!

Missed one point: The username is contained in the path to the profile directory:
...ProfileList{S-1-5 ... }ProfileImagePath : REG_EXPAND_SZ : %SystemRoot\... etc.
