By accident I deleted a user account on my XP machine that I would like back. Is there a way to do this? If so, how? I appreciate any help.

Chris, That worked great, thanks. A question I have for you is, does Xp automatically set up restore points once you log off a system ? I didn't use that. I used a restore point from the one I created yesterday when I was fooling around with system restore.


Thanks again though.

System restore useualy makes a restore point after something "big" has happened, Such as an install of a new program or if you change system settings.

You can also set your own restore points, i recommend doing this before you tamper with anything your not 100% sure about. Just in case :whistling:

XP creates restore points when it deems it necessary to create one such as installing or uninstalling programs or removing user accounts like you did, stuff like that. it doesnt however create points when you add and delete files. if you want to create backups of files that you have created, then you will need a program like norton ghost/ save and restore or second copy or syncback.
