those 2 accounts you show don't appear to be admin accounts...
those other pics might as well be hieroglyphics to me... :)

Kk. The first pic says "beheerder" which means owner in english, so that should be the admin right? :)

Kk, I will use the program to make it bigger in a bit. I'll do just 1 and 4 for now, since 2 is only for showing the basic screen and 3 the "reagert niet" (no response) prompt.

EDIT: please ignore what i said above, I mistunderstood :)

I can give you a translation if you like.

thats what I need...

also set the system restore to about 5% of the hard drive space...
Go to Start...Control Panel...Double click the System icon...Click the System Restore tab...If you have a single partition, click the Settings button and reduce the disk space allocation by sliding the bar to the left. If you have multiple partitions, select the partition and then click the Settings button. Again, sliding the bar to the left reduces the disk allocation..When finished... click OK
the larger the hard drive size the less space you should use

you can free up more space by deleting all the $NtUninstall folders
Note that once the $NtUninstall backup folders have been removed, it will not be possible to uninstall that Windows update...it is recommended that you only remove uninstall folders relating to updates that have been present for some time, when you can be sure that they are causing no problems...
if that scares you...copy them to a CD/DVD and then you can always put them back if needed.
they are located in the C: windows folder...you will need to turn off restore to clear out all the old restore points after you do this then turn it back on and create a restore point manually

I'm sorry, but circumstances wont have it that I am going to be able to access the computer till next monday :) However, here is a translation, in the meanwhile, off the 4th post:

exiting program: mshta.exe

this program is not responding

Press cancel if u wish to return to windows and check the status off the program.

Press exit now if you wish to end the program immediately. If you end the program now, all non-saved progress will be lost.

There might be some typos in there, but thats basically it... I will still be able to check on geekstogo from time time to time, so if there's something else I can help you with untill I can access the comp again on monday, I'd be glad too.
Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for the help.

as a note, it can take windows up to 10 minutes to delete a user account using this method if the account in question is really large (i once had to delete an account that was over 10 gigs, the computer went unresponsive for at least 15 minutes) or if the account itself is corrupted.

Ugh, so much deleted so far, but still, increase in speed seem to be minimal... I think it is best we leave it as it is, since I doubt we will be able to get it run fast enough to meet todays standars. Everyone, thank you very much off all the help :)
