:tazz: I am running WindowsXP Home SP2 and in my documents and settings I have 10 different folders, each with different entries. I have Administrator,Administrator-Owner. All Users, All isers-Windows, Daniel wilson, Default user, Default user-windows, Guest, owner, and Owner-Grandpas Computer.I don't know how all of these folders were created. They all seem to have some of the same content but each has additional items.
I always log on as Owner and I am the only person using this computer.Is it possable to combine the contents of each folder into the Owners folder and eliminate the other folders without creating problems?

You only need to copy the my documents out of each users account and only what you what to keep of it, most of the other stuff can go. Then while in the account you what to keep go
Start < Control Panel < User Accounts
You should be able to see the remove account for those accounts that you don't what to keep, also select when removing the account to delete the account's files.

Once you have finished post back saying what folders are left.
