I see a considerable amount of files on my XP installation that I would like to clean up. For one there are seven users listed; see attachment "users." I can understand the "administrator" and perhaps one more but I am the sole user of the computer (Guess I consider myself the Administrator) and would dearly love to scratch all but one, the Administrator. It isn't just the room they take up but more the files that are repeated in each one. Is this possible?

Then there are many program folders that I will never use, for example: MSsoap, Word frontpage, MSN Gaming zone, Net meeting, OnLine service, Outlook express, Windows NT, and Xerox. Every time I try deleting them they come up with "cannot be deleted." Is this a fact or can I safely bypass this notice somehow?

There should be two user accounts; yours(administrator) and a disabled guest account. With your administrator account, you should be able to delete them easily.
goto 'User Accounts' in Control Panel. From there, click on each name individually and select 'delete' at the bottom of the menu.

Try going to Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs>Remove Ws Components in the left column. Only a guess on my part.
