    Hi,

    I've been trying to delete the account that my version of vista was originally set up with, i have already made another admin account, so i tried to delete the original account by going through the normal method of deleting the account, it worked, but only to a certain extent, i cant log onto the account anymore, but all of the files remain under the users folder. Oh, and yes i did click to delete all of the files. I was just wondering, would it be ok to delete it directly from the users folder, or would it be best to leave it alone?

    Thanks in advance.

    I personally think the best option would be to take over the administrative account, I.E rename it and delete the others, seems like less work.
