You can not install anything from a limited account. That is the idea of a limited account. Try installing the game from the administrator account.

Is there a another way to delete a user account on Windows XP?

Users are deleted in User Accounts, or Local Users and Groups. Not in Documents and Settings.

Make sure you are an Administrator, and not trying to delete active login account. Then delete.

It say my account is limited

There must be an account on the PC with admin rights?? That user needs to log on and change your account to full instead of limited.

Limited User access will not open files in software program

boot into safe mode on xp. when you start the computer and the bios screen comes up start tapping the F8 key. it should take you to the boot selection screen. press your arrow keys to get to the selection "Windows Safe Mode" and press enter. when xp loads the login screen, there should be an admin account now. use that account to set users access to admin rights.
if you dont want that user to have admin rights but still start software that requires admin rights, try this. right-click on the program. go to run as... and choose administrator.

please let me know if this helped you :)

It is a simple matter to add an administrator account to your computer provided you are already logged in as an administrator. If you are logged in as an account created as "limited",as many guest accounts are, you do not have the authority to create an administrator account.Provided you are already an administrator and only want to add a new account follow these steps. From the start button, go to control panel, then user accounts. Click on add account, create a name, click on administrator and just follow the prompts.

Hello neerajsahu,

If you are referring to Microsoft Windows based operating systems, there is no default password.

The default configuration w/ respect to passwords on user accounts is there is no password set on any user accounts until one is assigned by someone.

Beginning w/ Microsoft Windows XP, with respect to Safe Mode, the password is unaffected when entering Safe Mode. If a password is required to enter a user profile in Normal Mode then the same password is required for that user in Safe Mode.

Please, let me know if this response was "Helpful" or a "FixYa" for you or, of course, if you have additional questions, etc on this topic.

If I did not answer your question satisfactorially, plz, b4 assigning a "Thanks for Trying" or lower rating to my "Solution", let me know. I may have misunderstood you or the problem you are experiencing.

In any case, I will work w/ you until your problem is resolved or diagnosed. I promise! :)

Thank you
