want to delete users with never logged in status using Solar Winds Inactive user account removal tool

Downloaded Solar Winds inactive user account removal tool and ran it on my Windows 2008 Server.  On the last logon column, it shows the entry of "Never Logged in"  Does this mean I can remove all of these users that say this?  I ran this as "inactive since 1/1/2017

Never remove accounts without first disabling them first.  If you want, move them into a special "Inactive Accounts" OU, then after a good quarantee period, delete them.  

Its going to be impossible for someone to say what this tool does unless they too have used it.  If it looks at the AD attribute 'LastLogonTimeStamp' which it probably does, then its just showing you the value of this attribute in the directory.  'Never Logged On' just means this attribute is not set/present.  

Here is more reading on this attribute:

You could use my ADCleanup tool which first disables object for a period before automatically deleting them. Also, if you have 2008 R2 or when you eventually upgrade, enable AD recycle bin
