Probably but if you are doing this to one user, why not do it by removing it from all groups it is a member of? Through the AD properties.

Hi, just so you know, the script that Jmoody10 has pointed to reads users logon IDs from a text file, and removes each user from all groups they are a member of (except the Primary Group).

I recommend that Jmoody10's comment ID 35167487 be accepted.  It will do the job.

You said in your comment "except the Primary Group" this means they will still be a member of that group and therefore not removed from "ALL" Grouos as per the request?

But you can't remove a user from a primary group.  You must have one group set as the primary, and since there is no request to change the primary group, you can't do anything else with it.
