Ok bascially , my user or old user was MynameHere/Admininstrator now it's Mybrothersname/Adminstrator. This is when i log in after like a stand by or sumtin, u know when ur pc locks up when u dont use it ? yeah well when i log in after that it says im under my brothers name. As in it says....

you're still a little short on information

could you go to start > control panel > user accounts and tell us what you see?

a network thingy?

c'mon man, throw me a bone. I still do not know what is going on here. You're not stupid, you're just not taking the time to explain yourself. Start from the beginning.

Are you and your brother sharing a profile, or were there two separate ones? How are you logging in?

Who set this machine up?

It sounds like you are logging in as Andrew and not Ed.

When your pc starts, are you presented with a Welcome Screen with both accounts listed, or does it go straight into Windows?

Let's go back to this...I do not understand why you have just one account, but you have two user folders (in the picture)

Did someone (brother) delete your user user account under user accounts in control panel?

How old is your brother? How old are you?

I think we need to re-setup some user accounts and transfer some stuff because someone has been doing sone odd stuff on your pc

hmm, thought your brother was messing around with you (and maybe he was)

One more thing to check

Open MY COMPUTER and navigate to

c:\documents and settings\

What are the names of the folders you see here?

Someone has definitely messed around with this machine. Did you talk with your dad about this?

I don't know if someone set something up or if someone was deleting profiles, but something is amiss. If he's OK with it, you can setup a new user account with your name on it, because right now there is only 1 account there.
