    In this folder, I currently have 4 folders:
    Administrator
    All Users
    [email protected]@@@@
    [email protected]@@@3###

    How do I remove the unneccessary accounts? How do I switch between them?

    If you delete them, you can't switch to them.

    You should have at least one other account that you use regularly. Do not use the Administrator account as your primary account.

    Heed Double Helix warning. However it does look as though you are using the Administrative account as you own account. IF THAT ISTHE CASE. then enter the control panel/user accounts./manage another account. You will be presented with those you have listed. You can select them in turn and delete them. There is, at the same time, an option to delete the files also. Only you know if this would be a good idea!!
