I need a script to run that will delete a file from All Users Profiles desktops.

I would like to push this out through Kaseya but am open to other suggestions

DEL C:\Documents and Settings\HELP NEEDED HERE\Desktop\OrderForm.*

Any ideas?

If you're putting it in a logon script then you can use this command:

DEL /F /Q "%userprofile%\Desktop\OrderForm.*"

Open in new window

Of course you can add /F /Q to that if you want... and this needs to be put in a batch file (.bat).

/F force delete of readonly files
/Q does not ask "are you sure you want to delete?"

for /d %%K in ("C:\Documents and Settings\*") do del /F /Q "%%~fK\Desktop\OrderForm.*"

Open in new window

For just the All Users profile, you can use this:

del /f /q "%allusersprofile%\Desktop\OrderForm.*"
