Removing a User

  the-george 22:38 22 Dec 2005

Running W98 I have a previous users name in the User profile. Tried going to Control panel and Users but all this seems to want do is create new user profiles. I want to get rid of this one. Any Ideas?

at least one user in the profiles in control panel.

How many do you have?

However, I solved the problem of having a previous owners name all over the place. I launched SEARCH/FILES & FOLDERS/CONTAINING TEXT and typrd in the name. I then deleted all safely deletable files with name in. Other files such as system.ini and backups and registry files I edited sucessfully.
When re=booting Windows wanted a new name which I entered and things booted up perfectly.

I dont want a password so I went into CONTROL PANEL/PASSWORDS and enabled the ALL USERS TO USE SAME SETTINGS option and problem seems to be solved.
