When you say “delete the profile” are you just trying to delete the profile 
folder under C:\Documents and Settings? That doesn’t truly dump the profile, as 
there are still some registry keys that have to be cleaned up.


On that note, I don’t think deleting the profiles on startup is a good 
practice, even if they are for what I assume are temporary lab user accounts. 
You’re better off creating a scheduled task on the machine to run the 
delprof.exe utility (from the Server Resource Kit) which can delete all 
profiles that have not been used in a specified number of days. Just my opinion 
though. You may have valid reason for doing it that way so please don’t take 
offense. J


As far as the script not executing is concerned, did you place it in the GPO’s 
“machine\scripts\startup” folder in SYSVOL or somewhere else on your network?

All -

I've added a bat file to the startup script inside of a GPO, the computer 
configuration part of the GPO. The script deletes any profile starting with 
lab* and is suppose to run when the computer is restarted so as to not run into 
any file locks by explorer. However, the folders are not being deleted and when 
i run a gpresult, the script indicates: " This script has not been executed"

any ideas ?
