Deleted users reappear

On one of our company's Win2K workstations, previously deleted user profiles will reapper after teh computer is restarted (going to users & passwords in Control Panel).  How can I thoroughly get rid of these unused profiles so that these users can no longer log onto the computer?

Has the account been removed/disabled or what?
Start->Run->Lusrmgr.msc - remove it there.
You might also try the profile deletion utility (delprof.exe)

Thanks.  I'm away from the computer until tomorrow and will try then.
BTW, I did "remove" (I believ) in Contol Panel-Users & Password, not disable.

Try lusrmgr.msc anyway - see if they're there...not sure why they'd "come back"...good luck!

I went into the office for a bit today and went to the Microsoft knowledge base you directed me to.  
I wonder if the KB article has been changed sinde it gave instructions on running "delprof" rather than "lusrmgr.msc".

Apparently, I need the W2K Resource kit in order to find and run delprof, and I did not have that available.

Now, I've gone to the Microsoft website and did a search for lusrmgr.msc without finding it.  Any ideas what I may be doing wrong here?

The KBa was for delprof.exe - not lusrmgr.msc (did you run the latter?)
You can download delprof.exe from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&familyid=901A9B95-6063-4462-8150-360394E98E1E
