Removing a user

We have a windows 2003 machine that was recently removed from a network and setup as a standalone machine (for testing purposes).  There are a number of users that were added to the machine while it was connected to the network.  It appears that these userIDs and "Documents & Settings" directories are still setup.  Is there a way to completely remove these users from this machine?

The machine is not set up with AD and I can't seem to find the standard "User Accounts" settings that typically appears in the XP Control Panel.

Thanks.

Just delete the folders - they're orphaned now.
You may have to take ownership, under a local Admin account first though.
Right click Documents and Settings and choose properties
From the security tab, Advanced, Owner tab, assign the local Admin as the owner, making sure to lay the change down to all sub containers as well...
