user accounts xp pro sp2

while trying to resolve some issues on my pc yesterday (mainly non running avg 7.5) i tried safe mode, i am the only pc user but found it would not load up completely if i selected administrator it would just hang saying loading your settings, if i log on with my details (administrator) it boots into safe mode fine, any ideas or would it be safe to delete the old administrator account?

I have only one account, me as administrator, and the `Guest` facility is turned off. In common with you, if I boot into `Safe Mode` there is an `Administrator` account showing but I never use it. I believe it is a default that cannot be removed as it has never appeared in the `User Accounts` list in Control Panel.

If my belief is wrong I feel certain someone will correct me.

it would appear not as my set up is the same as yours but thanks for the confirmation
