SSRS Remove A User Account

Hello -

I granted a user administrative access to the ssrs web app, and now can't revert back to what it was like before I added him (blank screen).

I have removed him from all the report folders securities, and removed his ssrs memberships from his user profile on the domain controller.

However, if I log in as him from his computer, I still have full access as I do with my own administrative account.

FYI, the other user is my colleague and was testing this out to make sure I understood how to go back and restrict access,

Login to your SQL Server using sa or other sysadmin login and then check whether that login was completely revoked access to all reporting server related databases or not..
Also check whether rsexecrole access was revoked from that user..
And try restarting SSRS once since that user credentials might have been stored in cache...

Kindly confirm whether that user is part of Builtin\Administrator role on that server..
If so kindly revoke and test..
