Hi, I'm trying to completely delete an old profile from Win2003 Srvr, and it won't fully delete.  Since this is our main server and still during business hours I don't want to reboot/remove in safe mode.  I've already verified that all processes running are legitmate; no viruses, no spyware.  The profiles are stored on an external HDD. The files that remain are:

BRNDLOG.TXT
BRNDLOG.BAK  -- these were found in F:\Home\Username\Profile\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

also:
bookmarks.bak
bookmarks.html -- these were found in F:\Home\Username\Profile\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\opwy1sur.default
