Problems with too many user profiles on Windows 7 Professional computers


  • Is anyone aware of any problems related to Windows 7 computers when too many user profiles are created on the machine. I work in a school environment and I recently read an article posed by someone in another educational environment indicating that they had issues when too many profiles were created on a computer.

    Since the built-in user profile manager only lets you delete each profile one by one, this is hardly an option with the volume of user profiles that exist in such a lab environment. The group policy Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> System -> User Profiles -> Delete User profiles older than a specified number of days on system restart
    that exists in Server 2008 R2 is just not working.

    I appreciate your feedback.
