Unable To User Accounts (Dell - Windows XP)

I am unable to delete my other user accounts. I go into "Control Panel" and "User Accounts". When I click "Delete" (after they ask me if I want to keep my files or delete them) - it loads for a few minutes, but then I keep getting the same message: "System not responding." I've tried restarting my computer, etc.

What you are describing is a symptom of Operating System corruption. This happens with Malware (spyware, virus, trojan, etc.) or other buggy software. Sometimes the cause can not be easily determined.

The fix is to be sure your system is clean of all malware first. If you are reasonably sure the system is clean, remove any software you are not using to be on the safe side.

Next to check for corruption, from Start > Run type cmd and hit Enter. Then type in SFC /scannow and hit Enter.

It will likely prompt you for your Windows XP CD and take roughly 15-30 minutes to run.

If you still have the problem, boot to the Windows XP CD and run a repair on your O/S.

Let me know if you need the details on how to run the repair.

I am unable to send and receive messages on yahoo or probably they are not visible.


In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, "regsvr32 jscript.dll" and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type in the Run box "regsvr32 vbscript.dll" and click OK. Please note, if you are using Windows Vista temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off.

3) If the above does not fix your problem and you are using Windows XP, you can update your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others, this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows and chat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. run registry cleaner reginout to easily fix it

If you are using Windows XP the best way to solve this problem is to create a new user (found under Control Panel - User Accounts) select Create a New Account (This should be under a name you are happy using) and make sure it is a computer administrator in the next screen.
Shut the computer down and restart, log on as the new user. You can now delete the old account by going back into User Accounts. This will remove all the old settings.
The procedure is very similar in Vista and Windows 7.

I want to know how to delete a standerd user account?


I you are using Windows, click "Start" then "Control Panel" then "User Accounts," then "Change an Account." Choose the account you wish to delete, then click "Delete Account" it will ask you if you want to keep the account's files, say yes only if you had something important on that account. NOTE:you can only delete accounts if you are a administrator.
If you are using a Mac, click "System Preferences" then "Accounts" then select the account you wish to delete and click the little minus sign at the bottom. NOTE: Like Windows, you can only delete accounts if you are an administrator.
