I saw that email you sent today on Flex Profiles - very interesting, looking

My solution works fine and is low maintenance, but I'm always open to better
alternatives. Flex Profiles looks promising.

Wouldn't you be better off just using Flex Profiles along with UHPClean?

I haven't used delprof since NT 4 days, so I don't know if it also cleans up
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy\ and
similar reg keys. Does it?
