Default Unable to Delete Roaming/Local Profiles.....

I have a few users on 1 computer that will not allow me to delete the users
profile. It doesn't matter if the accounts are Local or Roaming. I am using
the Domoain admin and the Local computer accounts to try to delete them.

If I try to delete the folders themselfes, I get an error stating the files
are in use. If i check the processes running there are no processes running
for the users I am trying to delete.



I have taken ownership of the entire profile folder. I can't delete the
profile because it says there are items in use. When I check the processes I
can't find anything in use. I have logged in in SafeMode as an admin and
still I can't delete this folder. When you go into "My Computer" properties
and view the profile the delete is grayed out.


Any Ideas

Please Help

Thank You
