Is there anyway to do that? do you just delete the username and make it again? Or is there a easier, better way?

Delete everything off of one user on my computer, XP home edition. Wondering how i can do that without using a program like wipedrive, that deletes everything, including other users, and XP itself.

If you have Administrative rights, you can delete any account you want... except the current logged on user... and the Administrator account.

Go to Control Panel and launch User by double clicking on it.

Click on the account you want to delete.

Under "what do you want to change about your account", choose the delete account option... and follow the prompts.

All this does is delete the user... along with his files, if so desired. You will get a prompt to delete user files when you delete the user. This will not delete programs installed on the computer.
