Delete Domain User

Posted: 02-20-2008, 07:28 PM
I have a computer with Windows Vista Business that has the original
administrator account and a user account that was created automatically when
joining the domain. The computer is no longer used with the domain, however,
the user and files remain on the computer. It is not listed under the User
Accounts. can I just delete the folder from User Folder or how can I delete
from the computer? Thanks.

Best practise would be to remove the compter from the domain and then remove
any domain user folders left over.

Dear James;/ _Urgent_

I have a HP Laptop with Vista Business edition. It had configured wit
a domain. I have a domain user account(with admin rights) & also a
account with administrator rights called Admin on this mechine. So
removed the domain form the mechine.
Now I can login to the mechine using the Admin, but when I trying to d
any administrative actions; it is reqesting "Windows needs you
permission to continue" screen and asking the password for my forme
domain account name, but I typed the password. It is not allowed.

Pl. help me to solve this prob
Thanks
