Hi all,

We have a new smartboard that we want to hook up to a desktop PC for a meeting room. I have heard that their may be a maximum number of user profiles in Windows 7 before a pc starts to play up.??

Is there a way I can have a scheduled task to remove user profiles from a PC each night?

Also can anyone confirm this mysterious problem with the number of user profiles?

Any useful suggestions welcome.

Kevin.

There is no limit on number of user profiles that a windows 7 workstation have.  Only thing is after a good number of users, it will run out of system resources for other user profiles to be added.

For the  meeting room, you could use a common account with mandatory profiles so users changes can not be saved.

"after a good number of users" - yes, quite a few indeed. :)
Hard drive's the limit.
