    I am trying to delete a user account in XP. Everytime I click "Delete user account" windows hangs and becomes "not responding". This happen several times when I tried to do this. Any suggestions. Thank you in advance.

    My 1300 page reference book says: "User Accounts won't let you delete the last local account on the computer, even if you're logged on as Administrator. This limitation helps to enforce the sound practice of using an account other than Administrator for everyday computing."

    Perhaps you have run into MS making decisions for us!! It's like their trying to force auto updates down our throat.
