How to remove profiles on Network Computers

    Question

  • Recently we hired a Technician to assist in supporting our attached Network Computers.  However, after just a couple of months the Technician decided to move on.  We have noticed that while employed the Technician logged on many Computers with his IT Assigned Network Account.  This left behind the Technicians Profile on many of the attached Network Computers.

    We would like to know if there is a process where we can use Group Policy or AD to scan all the attached Network Computers and remove the Technicians profile.

    Thank you.

    >>We would like to know if there is a process where we can use Group Policy or AD to scan all the attached Network Computers and remove the Technicians profile.

    How is it going? What are the operating systems of our clients? Based on the description, there is no default group policy setting to do this. However, we can try to use a script to do this and use group policy to deploy the script as a startup script.

    For the specific script, in order to get better help, we can ask for assistance in the following scripting forum.

  • Frank - I did place the question over in the Script Forum, but we have received no response or example of a script yet.

    We are familiar with DelProf, but what we would like is a script to push out through GPO to remove these individual profiles without disturbing the other profiles.

    Thank you.
