I am trying to remove the locally cached files stored in \documents and settings\%username% when a user logs out.
We are running client 4.83sp1 and workstation manager. The problem mainly occurs when a member of the administrators group logs on, a new profile is created everytime for that user i.e user then user.000 then user.001. How can I stop this happening

Restrict the "Number of number of previous logons to cache" in the local security policy or the domain group policy.

Sorry I've tried that and set the local policy to zero all to no avail.

Zero might be a bad number, did you try 1?
