#2. Delete the user profile using Registry Editor

Note: Correcting the Registry incorrectly is very easy to cause errors for the entire Windows system, causing you to reinstall the operating system, lose data and take time, so you need to back up the Registry before proceeding!
+ Step 1: You use the Windows Run window (Windows + R) => and enter regedit => then ENTER.

+ Step 2: You access the directory ProfileList in the Registry by going to the manual. Or copy => and paste this link in the address box and then ENTER (if you are using Windows 10):
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows NT CurrentVersion ProfileList
In this folder, click on the long-named folders as we highlight in the image.
=> Then check the lock ProfileImagePath, see section value (Data) yes exactly the directory name of the user profile you want to delete (C:/Users/*) or not.
Usually the following folder name C: Users will match the user profile name always.
If you are not sure, you can go straight to the directory C:Users to check for sure. Remember to determine it carefully because deleting it can cause an error and force you to reinstall your operating system!
