I had a problem with my user profile and copied it to a new profile. All parts of it copied over but NTuser. Now it says I cannot delete my corrupted user profile, because NTuser is in use, even though I am logged in in the new profile. I have tried everything I know of Does anyone else have any ideas? I now have TWO user profiles containing all the same information and it now takes twice as long to do spyware and virus scans.

I deleted the user profile from System Properties under My Computer as the link said. However, when I go to Documents and Settings, all of the files from the corrupted User Profile are still there and intact so I still have 2 of the same files, like Pictures, Music, Shared Documents and Folders. :tazz:

Log on as administrator, click Start - Control Panel - User Accounts.
Select the account you want to delete, a window will open with a set of options.
Select Delete the Acount, you will be asked if you want to save the user's Desktop and My Documents files, click Delete Files, then Delete Account.
