deleted accounts not removed from HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Shouldn't an account be taken out of HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList, when an account is deleted?

    Wow, I just looked at an old XP machine.  I guess it's always been that way.

  • You need to manually delete the matched GUID in regsitry after deleting the user folder.
