Hi. I want to remove 3 profiles from my laptop (an old Dell Latitude CPx, running XP), leaving just one but have not been able to do it.

To do this I have done the following:
control panel>user accounts>(selected the account to delete)>change account>delete account>delete files>delete account.

The trouble is, when I get to the delete account screen and press the button, it just hangs, nothing happens. When I click the red x to get out I get the message
End Program. mshta.exe program not responding.

I've searched for mshta.exe but can't find it!

any idea what I need to do to get round this one and delete the accounts?

Thanks in advance.

I would think the best alternative would be to delete the profiles using Windows Explorer. By default they are located in the "C:\documents and settings" folder.
