you do not need a batch file to accomplish this
you can set this via GPO,
to delete roaming profiles on log off

however, this will probably not solve your problems

I think this is rather a network problem
be it a serious one (like a rogue network card or switch)
or the simple fact that you did not implement a split profile

this meaning that you split up the personal documents and the real
profile settings
you can, again, do this easily by setting up folder redirection thru
GPO
let the user's "My Documents" folder point to a share on the network
this will mean everybody is opening files on the network rather than
copy it over all the time
while this would seem an extra burden on the network it is not
opening files all of the time over a network is it's primary purpose
copying a lot of data back and forth is just wasting bandwidth
you can always make use of the offline folder settings to let users
continue to work while the network or server is down

also do not copy over the local settings folder since this merely holds
temp files you do not really need

grtz

Deleting profile folders won't speed up your machines. It
might actually slow them down further because the user
will have to download static information again and again.
You must limit the amount of data that needs to be
downloaded at logon time.
