Windows 7: I discard one user account but I kept the files and now I can get rid

I discard one user account but I kept the files and now I can get rid

Hi,when I first install the Windows 7 version I use my name then later on I open another account with a different name,and when I try to discard the account with my name I decide to keep the files of my account just in case,the system made a folder with the files,but they appear on the desktop an I decide to move it but the folder didn't let me, and after a while I could erase the folders,but now in the users
where you have Documents,Downloads etc my name appear there mixed with the name of the other person that I already open the second account and another
one with the name of that person alone,so that one is ok,but in the account where my name appear thas has two names there is a small icon with a lock figure and because of that I think,when I try to save the pictures that I take with the Webcam that is on the upper part of the screen doesn't want to save the pictures because in settings the account that appear is the one that has 2 names. (what a mess)The Machine is a Toshiba Satellite Pro L450 Series,with a Core 2 DUO,250 GB hard disk, Windows 7 Home Premium.Thanks
