Anybody know how to delete a "Limited Account" on Windows XP? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Everyone,

    At my place of work there is a stand-alone computer for various users to share with "Limited Accounts".

    I have adjusted the setttings under "User Accounts" so that the various limited profiles are all displayed on the "Welcome" page when the computer is switched on.  As far as I can tell, the only way to log on as the Administrator is by pressing "Control-Alt-Delete" then logging in with username and password. 

    Some of the "Limited Accounts" were created for testing purposes, and are no longer needed.  I would be very grateful if anybody could advise me how to delete some of the "Limited Accounts".  I have looked in "User Accounts", and can see how to change the password, and so on, but not how to delete the account. 

    Please advise, if possible. 

    Thank you very much. 

    Kind regards.

  • Resolved, thank you.   I think there was just a fault with our computer.  Thank you.
