I have 8 citrix servers. 6 No problem. On two of them I cannot delete the user folder under Documents and Settings. I get "Cannot delete UsrClass.dat" "it's being used ....."
Tried UHPClean. No Help.
Tried Regedit, HKEY_USERS, Unload the user's Hive. No Help.
Any other tricks short of re-booting the server ?

Go to Computer Management -> System Tools -> Shared Folders -> Open Files an dkill individual file locks

Or check out Process explorer to kill the file locks:

You can't till u restart. This is the only way to unload the registry of a user that did not unload properly.

The solution worked. I discovered that my self as well as I rebooted at 7:00 P.M. last night before Ithis solution comment arrived. It's unfortunate that it is the only solution as it's extremely difficult to reboot a production server during businees hours. Bad design on Microsoft's part.
