Removing Domain components
My neighbour has just left his job and has been told he can keep his laptop as it's 'getting on' a bit now.
Anyway, it's just over 2 years old and recently had Windows 7 installed.
The problem is is that he wants the domain settings etc removed from it and I'm not sure if this can be done unless the machine is actually logged on to the domain to be able to remove it from the domain.
The reason he doesn't want it re-installing etc is that it's setup just as he likes and doesn't want to spend all the time setting it up again if there is a quick fix.
Can this be done when not connected to the domain?

Do you want to keep the profile in tact also?
If so, then you may have to look at using one of these tools: ForensiT Free Downloads
failing that, just remove the machine from the domain by adding it to a workgroup (create a local admin account before hand) The Local Administrator account may be active..?
