This utility, DelLocalWinUser.exe (Delete Local Windows User) is a manual utility that enables you to clean up local Windows user accounts (profile directory and SAM) from the command line.
A common and unique feature of this utility is the ability to delete all local account that haven't been used for a number of days.
DelLocalWinUser * 30
This is handy for keeping shared-use computers from getting clogged with old, unused accounts.

10/17/05 Update: AUTHOR NOTE UPDATE
This update addresses the issue with bombing out on names with apostrophes.
One could run this as a service using the SRVANY tool from Microsoft.
This would need to be run as an Administrator-level account. Could use the RUNAS.EXE utility to launch DelLocalWinUser as an Admin-level account.
