When making a image of one of our new desktops getting win7 x64, to put on our WDS server one of the admin accounts didn't get removed.  Is there a way I can mount this image and remove the account with out having to re-sysprep the whole thing?

from a command prompt
DISM.exe /Mount-Wim /WimFile:C:\test\images\myimage.wim /index:1    /MountDir:C:\test\offline
c:\test must exist
goto the directory and to the users folder and remove what you want
dism.exe /commit-wim
dism.exe /unmount-wim

I presume you're talking about the profile for admin account, right?   If so, then ve3ofa's answer is correct

If, on the other hand, you're talking about a local account that was created on that PC, then no.... you'll have to "go live", fix it, and re-image.
