convert win7 laptop from a domain configuration to a standalone configuration

I have a laptop that recently was part of my small business network and setup with a logon to that domain.  Now i want to keep the same user and all associated programs etc, but i want that user to be the local admin of the PC and NOT a user on the domain.

Hi, I forgot to tell you that you must first create the local account stevet (as an administrator), log in with this account to create the stevet profile and then follow the steps to copy the domain profile  dlb\stevet ( you can not copy the profile of the loged user)

Hope this helps

Hi Axe, I think the best way is to copy your profile before leaving the domain.

Check this link:

Hope this helps, if you have any problems with the process let me know

In theory that is exactly what i want but it doesn't work -frown    See the attached screen grab.

I want to change dlb\stevet   to stevet but keep all the profile info.  This method seems to lead down that path but in the end gives me no options to change anything

It just doesn't seem to really work.  I think it's mostly a MS problem that is very complex and not very used or needed so their solution is very minimal.

It doesn't really work, not your fault but probably MS.
