Windows Profile Cleanup

If a ton of user files are deleted from a Windows 7 user profile on a stand alone pc, is there anything other than a defrag needed to properly reorganize the file so that user can login again and get to the desktop quicker?
 
How about in a Domain?

Hi,
 
Running De-fragmentation is good idea after deletion of multiple files. in addition you can do below.

1. remove all large files/folder from desktop and create the shortcut if really needed to be on desktop.

2. running disk cleanup  will also help.

3. go to run type MSCONFIG and remove unwanted program from startup.

4. then go to services tab and select "hide all Microsoft services" and uncheck all services that not needed.

5. remove/clean any startup script by Group policy that not required.

Did you remove the user from the user accounts on the local machine? or did you just delete the files?

Here is a walk through that is pretty straight forward... sounds like you are simply trying to delete the profile... it will create a new one when they log back in...

Edit: I may have misunderstood... are you just cleaning up the files within his profile?
