    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:

    I hope this helps.
