delete user folders

S

I have deleted serveral user accounts on my computer. When the accounts were
delted I asked vista to delete the associated user files:

The old folders under c:/users/"account name still appear and I would like
to remove them permanently to clean up the computer.

Any help would be appreciated

Spitz,

Using this tutorial, you'll be able to right click on the user folder, take ownership, which should allow you to delete the folder: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/112795-context-menu-take-ownership.html

I hope this helps.
