Deleting the Default User profile on W2K3 Terminal Server

I am trying to delete the Default User profile on a Windows 2003 Terminal Server SP2.
Normally after a server is rebooted the Default User profile can be deleted and recreated using the User Profiles section in System Properties.  I can't seem to delete the Default User profile because the index.dat files located in the profile are in use.
I have removed all permissions on the Default User profile folder so that only the administrator has full rights.
Even if I reboot the server then try access and delete the folder from another computer without logging onto the server, I still can't delete it.
Any assistance would be appreciated.

Don't worry about this one I resolved it.
Firstly I changed the security on the folder so that only Domain Admins had full control and incase that didn't work I also disabled a Group Policy being applied to the users on that server.
I then rebooted the server and then I was able to delete the Default User profile.
