    Right click on "My Computer" and choose properties. Go to the "User Profiles" tab. There you can delete the profiles. Don't forget you need admin privileges to do this.....

    Maybe I explained that wrong. I cant delete their folders under documents and settings. I did right click on my computer but there are no other pofiles left there except the one that are supposed to be. Also I said I had some shortcuts to some stuff on those computers when they were around. I find this under my network places not my computer. Any more Ideas

    If you are the local admin then you can delete any folder you want. Check your permissions.
