Because when i change my account Mr.DrIxT-TrOx for Administrator Account and i rebooted the system there was other system without my softwares and games that i installed and when i went back to my account Mr.DrIxT-TrOx it showed my my softwares and games that im still having, so i would like to know if someone knows how to delete the Administrator account and without losing something installed in my Laptop if there is a way and u are totally sure it is! well i will do it and i will be so thankful.
By the way i also would to know if is it a good idea to Delete the ASPNET. Users or i just leave it like it was.

Thank for Reading and i will appreciate ur help as well.

Hi

Am I correct in thinking that you normally log on using the Mr.DrIxT-TrOx account and that this account has all your stuff in and works ok?

If so, then firstly WHY do you want to remove the admin account?
Secondly, as far as I'm aware, you can't. You can disable it but not remove it.

The "Administrator" account is a built-in account on Windows XP.
It's used if you lock yourself out of your own account for example.

The ASPNET is also a built-in user to Windows XP and I don't think you can delete this either.
The ASPNET user is installed on your computer when you install .NET framework. It is used when you run ASP.NET programs.
I wouldn't recommend removing it if it is even possible.

I think an appropriate sentence for this situation is:
"If it isn't broken, don't fix it" :)

The following link shows you a list of built-in user groups and users.

I hope this clarifies something for you.

Olrik

I'm with Artellos on this one - the Administrator account is a built in account and is supposed to be there.
