Roaming Profile copying everywhere

Hi

I'm having a problem with Roaming profile, we had around 100 users but probably 75 a day and half of those user rotate into deifferent workstations in a Call center area, the problem is that we had profiles of users copy into every worksation even when we clean the profiles of the machine it somehow re copy then back and in a week there is only 3 different user login to any workstation so I was especting only those profiles appearing on that particular PC but even profiles from old users still get copy back to all workstation.
Besides the problem of network copying profile to every PC and updating then every day this also create a lot of maintenance to keep PC's of those none used profiles.
How can we set that the Workstation maintain copys of the users that had log to that PC in stead of every user being copy to every machine, is there a setting for this and also what time this copy happens?
Is't worse to delete thos profiles if they will be copy back?
how to clean the profiles of users not longer in the organization?

Sorry is too many questions but I would like to see what will be the options.

All machines are Windows 7 on a domain SBS 2008, we are in the process to change to full blown not sure if this will improuve with full blown version of Windows 2008?

We keep growing an more machines to maintain, we need to  automatize this process.

Regards

Oscar

On, you can configure a GPO to have the cached profile deleted.
The issue you seem to have might reflect a service that is being setup with the user's credentials which would explain how an account reappears.
What rights do the users have, limited/restricted user, Oreo they have elevated rightson the workstation?

Great I just check that GPO and implemented OK, now the point about restrictions yes certainly the machines with several profiles had being used normally by users with limited or restricted user I just also check a few machines with user with power user privileges and those do not have cached profiles, will test your suggestion tonight.

Thank you
