Documents and settings - confusion

  wester john 15:42 13 May 2006

A few months ago I reinstalled WINXP +SP2 without reformatting the HD. Everything works fine but I am puzzled about why in Docs & Settings beside my own name as a user there is another folder entitled 'My Name' with a string of 15 digits after it.

I use Eudora as my email client and in Application Data under My Name the attached files and the mail boxes are out of date.

Under 'My Name'+15 digits the attached files are up to date but the mail boxes and address book are out of date

However when I look in Program folders, under Eudora, all the mail boxes and address book are up to date but there are no attached files.

Can anyone suggest a solution, please

Check "Start-Control Panel->User Accounts"

Is it listed there?

If it is the result of a user account, it might only be found by running control userpasswords2, which lists hidden accounts.

The only user acc listed is My Name Computer Administrator.

As I said to matty_c92 the only user is myself as Administrator. How do I run control userpasswords2?

Start, Run, type

control userpasswords2

and click OK.

Take care what you change!

I have run control userpasswords2 but can't find any hidden accounts.
