When looking at the User Profiles tab of the System tool in Control Panel, the Delete button may be unavailable for certain user profiles.
This occurs whenever the user account associated with that profile is in use. This not only applies to the currently logged on user, but also to any user accounts used by services that start automatically (such as tape backup software).
To resolve this problem, log on as a different user or stop the service that is currently using the account associated with the user profile. You can then delete the profile.
