I would simply go into Safe Mode, as the Local Administrator, and rename it. That way it removes the link from his UID to that profile, and then let him log abck in in normal mode. It will recreate it....

How did you try and delete the profile? Just deleting the folder in documents and settings or going into user profile settings?

for Windows XP try to:
Right click 'My Computer', choose properties, Advanced tab, User profiles settings; then try and delete the profile that way

Otherwise the safe mode way described above by john is a pretty sure cure.

Hope this helps.
