Best way to remove local profiles from over 1000 in windows xp OS

I am trying to determine the best way to remove local profiles from over 1000
machines on a weekly basis. Right now we are having to manually visit these
machines or use remote management and slowly delete each profile.

I am looking for some help with writing a script which will use pc names
from a txt file, remotely delete the user profiles, with the exception of a
few specific ones.

I have looked at the tool available from Microsoft, except the user profile
deletion tool deletes all profiles and there are a few I would like to leave.

Any help or direction in writing a script to take care of this would be much
appreciated.

well, here is a security issue, and administration policies.
I recommend you should talk, with the administrator of this locals machines, to do this. depending on LAN or place, its a privacy and security issue. but yes, depending the rank you have to make changes on cumputers, or what you really want to do, on that computers, there is no tools for that but make policies. as administator

Hi, I have a HP mini 1000, running windows XP, how can I reset it to factory?


If you purchased it from new, you will have the XP installation disc. Place the disc in the DVD/CD drive. boot from it and choose fresh OS from the menu. That will place a new OS of XP in your machine.
You will lose all your programmes and data. All must be reinstalled afterwards.

Is the lexmark x1150 printer compatible with any computer. I have a hewlett packard


Yes, The printer drivers are determined by the operation system therefore it does not matter what brand of computer. If you have the disk that came with the printer you can load the drivers on your HP computer. If not you can go to the link below and select your operating system and download the current driver.

My laptop suddenly went bonkers. it was ok then when i turned it on it took ages for the screen to change from saying"microsoft windows xp" like 5 or ten mins...then screen looked black for a while after...


Sounds like your best bet is a fresh install of the operating system. Since it is an Inspiron, you may have the option of using PC Restore to re-image the system (Provided previous owner didn't hose the restore)
Info is here
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3705089-restore_dell_system_original
other things you can do are run diagnostics (Hold Fn Key and Press Power Button) and make sure you don't get a hardware failure in the diags (Passing diags is no guarantee of no faults, just none found)
If all else fails, boot to XP CD and do a clean install of Windows, then load the drivers.
Link to drivers:

Driver install order:

The I6400 is a good system, (I'm writing this on on) but the description you give tells me the OS is hosed and likely a reinstall is your best and fastest resolution.
