***Cancel that. We found how to delete the profile. That was the issue****
A friend of mine logged on to a different workstation and after logging in the first time we tried to open Excel and it just hung. We tried to open Word and it just hangs. We tried to open Outlook and it just hangs. A window comes up reading "Microsoft Office Professional 2003" and displays a blue status bar. Excel gets about half the of blue bar as well as Word. Outlook Gets only a few bubbles.

Well I logged in as Administrator and I can open Excel or the others just fine. So thinking it was the profile, I tried to delete the profile but can not due to the Ntuser.dat file in the profile being used or referenced by something. I had already tried to just rename the profile.

I tried to stop services that might be involved but ended up doing to many and forced a shutdown.

Suggestions on getting rid of that profile or what might cause the orignal issue?
