    When I first bootup there are 2 names on my desktop to choose from, mine and someone elses's who no longer has access to my computer. How can I delete that other icon?

    Delete the User Account. Sign in as a User with Administrative rights. In Control Panel>User Accounts

    Click on the User Name to bring up a new page. On this new page Choose "Delete the account"
