    1. All profiles are kept in C:\Document and Settings folder those are your user profiles.


    2. In the control panel under administrative tools, then under users and groups.

    1 is where you want to be...

    Well yes that's what I was trying to tell you in the second post. Profiles data changes daily. Even if you go into System Module it going to tell when the user last login. You need AD or Users for Domain (this can be found in NT/2000 and just add it to the C:\windows\system32 folder and run it. Doesn't have to be installed. AD Active Directory will give you the info also but you need to install Windows Server 2003 AD administration toolkit for XP.
