Automatically deleting user profiles

We have about 60 PCs running Windows XP serving about 1,000 people. Every user who uses our PC will have a local profile created. No roaming profile is involved. How do we configure the PC such that the user profiles will be automatically deleted when the user logs off the system?
You could try monitoring QHST for the message CPF1164 Job 123456/user_name/QPADEV1234 ended on. If you display the message using DSPMSGD, you can see the message replacement variables. If your program looks at &2, you can determine which user has just signed off. Then, if it is one of the users whose profile is supposed to be deleted, you could delete the profile.
