With the Profile Cleanup editor, you can remove individual settings from roaming or local profiles when you start managing them with User Environment Manager.

By using User Environment Manager, you can achieve an easy transition from conventional roaming profiles to well-managed user profiles. Individual applications can be migrated from roaming profiles to User Environment Manager at any time.

In addition, you can use the Profile Cleanup editor to clean profile fragments left by uninstalled applications, which increase login and logout times. When using the Profile Cleanup feature, roaming profiles are less prone to challenges created by profile growth. You can enter the registry and file system information to be deleted at logout from the Profile Cleanup tab.

You can use the following section headers in the Profile Cleanup editor:
