i have an account on windows that i would like to delete, but every time i click "delete" it stops responding. the reason why i would like to delete that account is because every time i sign into it...it says "windows software is not genuine". i'm not sure what's making that come up (only on that user)...and i would either like to delete the user or fix the problem and keep the user. any help would be great

click start, run, type control userpasswords2
make sure the: users must enter a password ... box is ticked
then select the account you want to delete and remove it
i'm pretty sure this won't delete the files for that user
to delete the files go to C:\Documents and Settings and delete the users folder
it's best to do in the user accounts window, but this is the other way
