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.

if this fails to remove your password


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.
