I have 2 administrator accounts on my pc, the default one called "administrator" and the one i created called "paul" i nhever use the one called "paul" so i wish to delete it. How can i do so, it doesnt let me do it through control panel

Have you tried clicking on the user account picture at the top of the start menu, this will open user accounts, when you say it doesn't let you do this through control panel, what do you mean? is there a message or does nothing happen, can you give me more details about the problem, regards, Rhuddlan.

when i select "change acount" thru control panel, it doesnt list the option to delete it.

Are you trying to delete the account while logged in on the Paul account?

If so you need to log out then log in to the administrator account and then:-

- select Start\Control Panel\User Accounts

- select Paul from the list

- select Delete the account.



You cannot delete an account while logged into it.
