Once you are in set up another account with admin privileges log out and in to the new account then delete your old account.

Forgot to say in new account use explorer to copy folders from old account (favourites etc.) before removing old account.

sometimes when i boot up my pc my os(xp pro) comes on with a light grey task bar. when i go into control panel to change it, it shows as xp(modified) and the control panel looks really old fashioned. when i pick the normal xp setting my pc freezes and i have to reboot thus restarting the whole process. pc is only 5 months old. any ideas please
