Published / by Chris Smith / Leave a Comment

I recently had an issue where someone had deleted my admin user profile from a remote server by deleting its folder. The logon then failed as Windows still expected the folder to be there, as obviously the registry entries were not removed. Rather than manually checking HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList for the SID and then removing it […]
