Q.  Recently, I created another computer administrator account on my Windows XP based computer. I now want to delete it. How can I go about it so that I will remain the only administrator as before?

A.  Click on the Start button and select the "Control Panel" option.  Open up the "User Accounts" utility.  This utility will come up in one of two ways.  Either you will see a "User Accounts" dialog box with a "Users" tab and an "Advanced" tab or you will see a "User Accounts" window with a "Pick a task..." section and a "or pick an account to change" section.

If it came up as the first method (i.e. the "User Accounts" dialog box), select the user you wish to delete and click on the "Remove" button followed by the "Yes" button.  Click the "OK" button to get out of the dialog box.

If it came up with the second method (i.e. the "User Accounts" window), click on the user you wish to delete in the "or pick an account to change" section.  On the next screen, click on the "Delete the account" link.  On the next screen, click on the "Delete Files" button (if you want to keep the files that are on the user's desktop on in the user's "My Documents" directory, then click on the "Keep Files" button, instead).  On the next screen, click on the "Delete Account" button.

The user should now be deleted.
