I've just bought a new computer and it was set up to have 2 users, Mike and Dad. We didn't need the 'dad' account so I deleted it. However, if I go to C:/Documents and Settings you still find 'Mike', 'Dad' and 'all users'. If you try and delete 'dad' it doesn't let you, and if you try and change the name it won't let you either. Is there anyway of getting rid of this user? Under 'User Acounts' in control panel 'Mike' is the only user...

Can anyone help?

Is dad an administrator account ?If so try logging in as administrator in safe mode and delete the account there.

Dad, and Mike are both administrators. The problem is, there is no dad account when I go into 'user accounts' through the control panel. So I don't know why it is still under C:Documents and Settings? I will try the safe mode option and see what happens... thans
