    I "think" I have 4 user profiles....Under CONTROL PANEL - USERS & PASSWORDS, it shows 4 profiles (3 with administrator rights and 1 guest) but under Windows Explorer in Documents and Settings it shows 6 profiles. except for 2 of them, I can't tell which ones in the CONTROL PANEL are the same as ones in documents and Settings.

    When I try to update Panda antivirus in 3 of the profiles (with admin rights) I get errors, but when I try on the "administrator" profile it works fine.

    Also, when I right-click the start button and click OPEN I don't see the same list of programs that I do if I simply left click start and then programs.

    I am the only user of this laptop; is it necessary to have a separate 'administrator" profile? Can I delete some of these profiles? How do I know which one I'd deleting, if the names do'nt match?
