do you have the "access denied" error message when you unjoin the computer?
i think you should also delegate the right to delete computer accounts for the computers container in order to be able to delete the computer account.

the solution to this problem is to delete the exact user name from the computer OU in Active Directory users and computers snap in,

to do this open active directory users and computers and then find computers OU and select that computer which are your rejoing and then delete after that you can join that with normal domain users accounts.
