Deleting Multpile User Accounts Windows XP

  STRETFORDEND08 14:56 04 Feb 2009


Is it possible to delete multiple user account at once in Windows XP ? I know it cant be done using computer management but is there any way at all? I have seen a help topic on the microsoft website about the AddUsers comman prompt utility, but it doesnt really tell you how to delete users as such.

click here I am presuming to do the multiple deletion you would need to hold down either the 'shift' or 'Ctrl' key.

ive viewed that link, and it doesnt tell you where your actually deleting from. If its control panel-user accounts , you cant highlight each one, as a single click takes you into that account itself?

the link refers to computer management, you cant select more than one user from there im afraid

Right click My Computer and select Properties/Advanced/User Profiles settings button from here you may be able to delete the accounts.

Why not just one at a time from the Control Panel? Surely you don't have so many that it's a problem?
