    Alrite, ive got an emachines notebook running xp home on it. We bought it from best buy, and i guess they registered the computer to a 'valued customer' and its really annoying. Idk how the user name stuff works, but i think a while ago (not 100% positive cuz it was like 2 years ago) when we first got the computer i changed the admin 'valued customer' name to my name. but the 'my documents' folder defaulted to 'c:/documents and settings/valued customer' still. i fixed it by making a folder on c: with my name and made that folder the target location for the My Documents folder. but i was just wondering if there was any way to get rid of that dumb 'c:/documents and settings/valued customer' folder (every time i delete it it comes back) and if there was any way that i could change the computer from being registered to valued customer to me. thanks for the help in advance guys (y)

    You'd have to make a new account. Then get on the admin account, change the new account to admin, then get on the new admin account and delete the 'valued customer.'
    That should work...


    Experience: so so, still learning (i like that)

    Hi logik927,

    With the User manager (via Control Panel), you should first delete the 'Valid User' account before erasing its folder. Otherwise, it will come back.
