I dont know how but when i started my computer around 2 hrs ago it asked me for my password never done that before So i started xp in safe mode went to user account and had to create an account .When computer stated i had double the amount of hard disk use.Think i may have put in the original account name in so its created 2 user accounts hence double the amount of hard drive space i have tried to delete the other account now renamed as guest ,but lost now and need a bit of help
