script to delete profiles older than 30days

Does anybody have a script (for XP,2000,NT) I can run once a month that will delete profiles not used for 30 or more days?

Microsoft offers a utility for exactly that purpose; delprof.exe, which is part of the W2k or W2k3 Resource Kit. If you don't have the W2k Resource Kit, you can download and install the W2k3 ResKit on an XP or W2k3 machine, then copy delprof.exe to where you need it.
Note that this tool will delete *any* profiles older than the age you specify; this includes the local administrator's profile as well, which is usually not that often used to logon.
