This utility, DelLocalWinUser.exe (Delete Local Windows User) is a manual utility that enables you to clean up local Windows user accounts (profile directory and SAM) from the command line.



A common and unique feature of this utility is the ability to delete all local account that haven't been used for a number of days.


DelLocalWinUser * 30

This is handy for keeping shared-use computers from getting clogged with old, unused accounts.



SYNTAX: DELLOCALWINUSER (username / *) (Days_old) (QUIET)

Username - Name of local account to delete

* - if wildcard specified, delete all local accounts
according to number of days old specified as a
second parameter, excluding accounts listed in
an exlude list file, DELLOCALWINUSER.EXCLUDE,
and the following hard-coded accounts:

Administrator
*STDLoad
DEFAULT USER
standalone
*NT AUTHORITY
__VMWARE_USER__
ASPNET



10/17/05 Update: AUTHOR NOTE UPDATE

This update addresses the issue with bombing out on names with apostrophes.

One could run this as a service using the SRVANY tool from Microsoft.

This would need to be run as an Administrator-level account. Could use the RUNAS.EXE utility to launch DelLocalWinUser as an Admin-level account.
