System is xp home/sp2 etc. the guest account is of, (I think) I have the 'Administator account'. Is this the reason why I have no 'User account' link in the Control Panel, or is there something wrong somewhere.
One way I found to open the 'User Accounts' is whilst in the Control Panel, into 'System', click on the 'advanced tab', click on the 'settings' button in 'user profiles' where there is a link to 'User Accounts'
I'm sure there was a 'User account' icon in the control panel at one time, or has my tinkering somehow removed it.

It is an eye in the right bottom corner next to Internet icon, with a red ball and a white line going through it just like a No entry sign. There isn't a red cross. I am only on this forum site. but the PC isn't mine. I deleted there cookies on the Ad-Aware. Do you think I might have done something wrong?
