Ok the first and easiest problem, how do I remove a user from windows XP? I try to acess it from the control pannel and it wont remove the name, it just locks up. There was a way to do it in DOS but I dont remember how! Please thanks

The second and much much much more important problem is something to do with video. When I first start my computer everything is fine, but after about 5 mins of use, everytime I scroll on a web page the color fades and it gets horosontal (I cant spell!) lines in the page. Its weird when I min the page and bring it back up its clear till I try and move the scroll... its annoying. After a bunch of times where it gets messed up the computer locks up and I have to restart. I am thinking its either the monitor or video card. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to test them without haveing to get another one and switch them out????

Hi there,

First of all for your video card, I have 3 tests
  • Go Start > Run & type dxdiag, then click the Display tab. Does it say 'No problems found.' Under the Notes section? Then try the two tests there, (Test DirectDraw, Test Direct3D)
  • Follow THIS link and try that test also.
Now as for your user accounts, I have no idea how to delete it with DOS, infact ive never even herd of it being so. Anyway I will look into it and get back to you. Try the 3 tests I gave you above and tell me the results.

One way i know how to delete user accounts is to open the Start>Run, and type in

control userpasswords2

There you can select the user account and delete it. I don't have a computer handy right now to test to see if the account is completely gone, but i did do this once a while back to get rid of a corrupt user account.
