I have about 50 XP clients on a 2003 DC with AD in a class room environment. I have been deleting a couple of the user folders in Doc & Setting on the clients, these IDs are not to be used again. These IDs appear on every XP client. In most cases the user's folder deletes fine on the XP/SP3 client. In a few cases I get the Cannot delete ntdat because its in use... message. Each client was just rebooted prior to this operation and there were no users on the DC, only the administrator. I would suspect that users had not exited cleanly at some point on these few systems and part of registery is hung in some state.
I'm looking for a way finish deleting the user folders on these clients.
