User accounts in windows 7

I recently bought an emachines laptop with windows 7. I had not used 7 previous to this. I set up four user accounts under the names Michael, Nichola, Joel, and Work.

In the Users folder the following user accounts have been set up:

Michael - which is empty
Michael.emachines - which contains all the folders I would expect e.g documents, pictures

Nichola - which is empty
Nichola.emachines - which contains all the folders I would expect e.g documents, pictures

Work - which is empty
Work.emachines - which contains all the folders I would expect e.g documents, pictures

Joel - which contains all the folders I would expect e.g documents, pictures

As indicated the only user account created the way I would expect it to be is that in the name Joel. The others seem to have a duplicate. What is strange is that when logging on only the created names are listed. If however you select the Michael user name you indirectly select the folders under Michael.emachines and likewise if you save a file it is saved in the Michael.emachines folders.

Can anyone explain why this has happened and whether it is beneficial to delete the empty accounts and rename the others.

Thank you
Michael
