How to Remove an Administrator Tool Created Profile

Once an Administrator Tool profile has been created, it cannot be deleted. To remove an Admin profile, a new package with the same name with no profile must be created. Once executed on the client system, it removes the Admin profile.


  1. Open the Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection utility.
  2. Open Advanced > Administrator Tool and enter your password.
  3. Select Create a Windows XP* package (do not open it).
  4. Select the Application Settings tab and uncheck Include Application Settings in this package.
  5. Click Close and then Yes.
  6. Save the package with the same name as the profile you want to delete and select click Yes.
    Note Best to save on the desktop.
  7. Select Finished and select Apply this package to this computer and OK.

Delete the profile once it has been tested to work.

Note In some cases or for testing purposes a pre-logon or persistent profile may have been created with the administrator tool. The above steps will then remove it from the profile list.
