Delete Inactive User Profiles with PowerShell

Written to replace DelProf, this script deletes inactive user profiles from a local or remote computer.  It supports arguments by position, and has a test parameter.  If you run it locally, you may supply host name, localhost or “.” The logfile is tab delimited, you may use XLS extension to open in Excel.  If you run the script interactively the log opens when the action is complete.  This is written to be loaded with “dot sourcing”, ex:
. "c:\mypsscripts\Delete-InactiveProfiles.ps1"

After you have loaded the module you can use Get-Help Delete-InactiveProfiles.ps1 for more information on syntax.

Delete-InactiveProfiles.ps1 is heavily commented so you can see what it is doing.  I am using WMI to get the list of local users, and query NTUser.DAT for last logon time.  Remember to rename from Delete-InactiveProfiles_ps1.txt to Delete-InactiveProfiles.ps1.
