FP 2002 Server extensions delete a user?

Hi, I have a Windows 2003 web edtion server running FP2002 server extensions.  I'm trying to delete a user, on the main server admin page I see there are 7 accounts. I go into "click here to add or delete accounts" and I can see seven users listed. But I cannot delete any of them. It says "user does not exist" when I try. I have tried manually deleting them from "users and computers" and they go form there, but still exist in the server extensions??

Any Ideas?

Thanks
Matt

What you see in the frontpage admin screens is a bunch of group members.  If you delete a local or domain user, any group that formerly contained that user will still contain the SIDs of the deleted users (and, in frontpage extensions, any additional user information that was created like a nickname, email address, etc).

You can find the name of the group by finding the website in your file system and looking at the security tab there.
Groups will be named something like: OWS_##########_browser, OWS_##########_author, etc.
If you can find out the group name, you can then delete the unwanted group membership through users and computers.

hope this helps,
AJ.
