    Just a quick question...

    I am creating a new profile as my current one is corrupted.
    Is it safe to delete the old profile?
    If so,do i just got to c:/users/username and delete the old profile from there by just right clicking my user name/file and delete?

    Do it in; Control Panel --> User Accounts
    Delete the account represented by "username" and when its asks about the data, that too. That is assuming you have already extracted any data you want from that profile first.
