Batch Script to delete windows 7 user profiles on network PCs

Hi
We have windows 7 PC and the user profiles are getting populated on the C:\users\ and very soon the C drive will be full.

I saw the attached batch file on the internet (Windows 7 User Profile Cleaning) and I want to try on one of the Windows 7 PC locally before I actually apply on the GPO  under:
(Computer configuration-policies- windows settings-Scripts-shutdown)

Please post me some tutorials as how to test this batch file on a local computer to see if it deletes the user profiles on a window 7 PC
Please remove any line \amend the script if required and any help will be grateful.

This file is meant to be run locally. Therefore, use a Windows 7 PC, where you backed up the user profiles already. Then log in as the administrator and just run this batch file.

I logged in as a administrator  and  copied this batch file to C:\users  and when double clicked.
I saw a command prompt windows appearing and disappearing very quickly and on the window it says:
"Skipping user clean for administrator. Domain"

Thanks

It doesn't delete  any user profiles that are populated.

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

The script uses a few ECHO commands and also a report on file. What do these say?

It doesn't log anything to a text file unless you happen to have a file called t:\labreport.txt.

To see the output of the echo commands, you need to run the script from a command prompt. Follow these steps:

Start menu > All Programs > Accessories > Command prompt > type cd c:\users > press Enter > type the name of the batch file > press Enter

As a side note, just deleting the user folder will not totally remove reference to the users profile as it did under XP. You also need to delete the users profile listed in the registry as well..

HKLM\software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

If you do not do this the user will get a message stating they are logged in with a temp profile
