  • you can delete the users in 2 ways : click start > run > lusrmgr.msc > users > right-click user and delete it.

    or

    click start > cmd > net user "username" /delete.

    Note: If you delete a user then you will loose the data associated with the user profile. Suggest you to backup or check once before you delete any account.

    You cannot delete the user account if you are not member of administrator.

  • Sir, 

    To delete a user account

    1.

    Open Computer Management

     

    2.

    In the console tree, click Users.

    Where?

    Computer Management > System Tools > Local Users and Groups > Users

     

    3.

    Right-click the user account you want to delete, and then click Delete.

    Note

    To open Computer Management, click Start, and then click Control Panel. Click Performance and Maintenance, click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management

     

    When you need to remove user accounts, it is a good idea to disable the accounts first. When you are certain that disabling the account has not caused a problem, you can safely delete it.

     

    A deleted user account cannot be recovered.

     

    The built-in Administrator and Guest accounts cannot be deleted.
