1 - allow scripting of IE web control which was disabled. Should this be enabled?
2 - scripting of Java applets and this was already enabled

Is there anything on your system you absolutely have to save - docs, pics, etc?

I have a large Scan Disc that I can plug in, back up everything and then unplug and keep to use for installation again. Other things like my attendance rosters will copy on paper.
What might happen?
And no more error messages so far but am not on that new account and have not been doing anything on PC until I get these accounts straightened out. Also is there a way to get to see my system admin account should I need it for some reason or must I go into registry to do that?
Off to dinner - back when finished:)

Try the new account again.
If worse comes to worse, you can copy all pertinent info and do a complete re-install of XP.
That will clean the system completely.

I checked to make sure other accounts DJH and donnajean were standard user accounts and suddenly the system admin. account appeared on the log in screen.
Will do a complete backup tomorrow of C drive off donnajean account and then try instructions received on transferring files and favorites to new account. Keep your fingers crossed - will let you know how I make out.

1 - established a restore date - just in case
2 - did a complete back up on my backup detachable disc (scan disc)
3 - have programed the new account with needed material did not want to lose
4 - was able to import address book to Outlook Express
5 - Outlook Express still malfunctions so had to again set up and use Thunderbird as email address program - imported all addresses
6 - only thing I could not accomplish easily is to import the Favorites. Used the path C:\documents and settings\all users\Documents\ (then a favorite folder) with import wizard. Was able to import one folder but after that for some reason keep getting message "wizard cannot find this file - try again". All my favorites sit right there in the documents folder so do not understand what I am doing wrong now.
Can accomplish the transfer by having two windows open (IE and Favorite folder) and opening the bookmark and adding to IE manually but that will take some time. Have quite a few bookmarks to do such too unless you can steer me into a different route.
After favorites are moved into new account - am ready to:
delete DJH and donnajean accounts
rename my 'test account' with a new picture
password the test account
have already passworded the system admin. account and it is showing
on the login window. (prefer it that way for use if needed as I could
not get it to appear with the CAD on Welcome screen for some reason.
So if it disappears again - want to have some reliable way to get to it
if ever needed.)
Have I forgotten anything/need to adjust anything?

Now open your new account and right click the Favorites folder and select Paste.

Also when I go to delete accounts, the place to do so seems to have changed from what I remember. So am I in the right place here:
control userpasswords2 then navigate to local user groups and delete there? I get a warning when I try about an identifier being lost and not able to retrieve again regarding the resources of the account. Just want to make sure.
