UserProfilesView is a free portable and scriptable tool that enables you to view all local and roaming user profiles on a Windows machine.

You can view all user profiles on a Windows computer either by navigating to the user profiles folder (C:\users on Windows 7 and Vista, and C:\Documents and Settings on Windows XP) or in the Control Panel (System, System and Security, System, Advanced System Settings). With NirSoft's UserProfilesView, you will probably be quicker because you just have to double-click the tool.

Moreover, the free portable tool gives you some useful additional information, such as last load time, folder created time, folder modified time, registry modified time, registry file size, user SID, and state (local, domain). This information can be useful for troubleshooting roaming user profiles because it allows you to check when a user first and last logged onto a specific computer.

Since UserProfilesView can also be run from the command prompt, and since you export the data to a text or HTML/XML file, you can use the tool to get an overview of which machines users have logged on to. For this, you have to write a little startup script that collects this information from the computers in your network.

I tested UserProfilesView v1.01 on Windows 7.
