Access the Administrator's account and create another account or do the necessary changes, like virus scanning, driver updating, etc..etc.. To access the Administrator's account in Windows xp, once the system boots upto the windows logon screen (where you are going to type in your password), press Ctrl+Alt+Del twice, the classing logon box will pop up, there type in "Administrator" and username and leave the password blank and press Enter. (If you had changed the administrator's password, use that one)

If you need further help, let me know with specific details.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to delete my user account to my laptop


You can never delete your user account completely if it is the only account on the laptop. Accounts are Windows default settings. You have to maintain at least one user account all the time.

Cant install software, account permissions


The only solution is to reinstall the OS. Next time you get the urge to delete an administrator account, make sure you create a user account with full administrator privileges, before delete the previouss admin 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.

Pls how can I remove authentication password from dell inspiron B130.


This is for Windows XP, for Vista/Win 7, the names might be different but the steps will be the same. Click on Start and then Control Panel. Click on the User Accounts link. In the pick an account to change area of the User Accounts window, click on your Windows XP user name. Choose the Remove my password link. In the text box on the next screen, enter your current password. Click the Remove Password button to confirm that you'd like to remove your account password. Now that your Windows XP account password has been deleted, you will no longer need to log on to Windows XP when your computer starts. Windows will now load all the way to your desktop automatically.

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.
