Hi lily - If your running Vista here's how :

1. Log onto the computer using an account with administrator privileges.

2. Click the Start Button.

3. Click the picture associated with your account at the top of the menu.

4. Select Manage another account.

5. When the UAC box pops up, click Continue.

6. Select the user account that is to be deleted.

7. Click Delete the Account.

8. You will be asked if you wish to keep the files from the deleted account. To save the account's desktop and personal files to your desktop, click Keep Files. This will place the files into a directory with the account's name onto your desktop. Otherwise click the Delete Files button.

9. Click Delete Account.

If your Running Xp here's how:

Log on as you( by now I think everyone knows they should give themselves adminstrator priviledges)

Start>comtrol panel>user accounts>pick an account to change>delete account.

If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Fully delete or just remove from access? If the former,
locate file on harddrive, RIGHT click on it then choose 'Delete'.
If the latter, you will need to install a 'shredder' or 'secure delete' program. Once that is done, start the shredder program, locate the file, left click and hold to drag and drop the file into it.

My laptop keeps displaying the user profile. Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.

Restart your computer press F8 right after the First Boot screen and Select Safe Mode Windows. Delete that User or make a New User Profile. That must fix your problem if your Safe mode is not secured by password, or if it is then consider reinstalling Windows.

Thank for asking Sir !

I have a laptop inspiron and cannot remove the lock function when i log on

First of all i need to know the specific model of the inspiron laptop in question.
Secondly,is the lock or its better to say password on the motherboard or on the user account.
If its the user account, then you can type the word "Administrator" in the user field if it opens up for u then u can access that account through C:\Documents and Settings/ user account and access the data. After u can even delete that account.
Or I reccommend to use Hillens Boot Cd and use the password tools.
