All patches done ... except a few Microsoft Suite updates as they dont have the disks which Mircosoft ask for.
Leaving that aside I discovered that I have an unknown account listed! I wish to delete this "User" from the system.
From Command Prompt in Win XP the directory I wish to delete is:
c:\"Documents and settings"\Owner
But first I need to delete any files within this account as the dos commands "rd" will only remove directories holding no file records.
Hence I have gone into the "Owner" and used "dir" to list directories.
Two directories are listed "My Music" and "My Pictures" having already deleted a file "My Documents".
When I visit "My Music" or "My Pictures" and use "dir" the message displays
0 Files 0 bytes
Great I think .... so from c:\"Documents and settings"\Owner I issue the command rd "My Pictures" and rd "My Music" seperately.
The former returns the message "The directory is not empty"
The latter returns the message "Access is denied"
Whats more this account is only listed in safe mode not in normal mode.
Question is: How do I remove this directory for this User? (A possible security risk whilst on the net)
