Help! How do you remove a user account?

Hi, I was trying something on this page :
Log On Windows 7 as Administrator — MAXIMUMpcguides – Windows 7 tips, tricks, help, and how-to guides
Now I want to get rid of it.
But how?
Thanks in advance

Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts, Manage Another Account and then delete the account.

The option to remove that account isn't there !
When I choose my account, I can see the delete option, but when I click on the other, delete isn't there.

Ensure nobody is logged on to the account you want to delete before you log into another, preferably admin, account in order to delete the one you no longer require.

You can not delete the built-in administrator account, you can disable it and hide it though. Right-click on it and disable the account, that will prevent anyone from logging in with it. But first be absolutely sure that your account is a member of the administrators group.
