How can I reduce the size of user profiles?

How can I reduce the size of user profiles? I assume if they continue to grow in size that much of the old content could be removed to save space and speed up load times. Deleting the profile is too drastic. I run into this problem with all my lab computers where there are many users.

Try running Cleanmgr.exe in the users' logon scripts. See the Knowledge Base article 315246 at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;315246 for more information.
