Hello,

You will need to create a new account, and migrate your data over. As soon as you start to delete your account, it should show you how to copy your data.

Good luck!

Hang on, I will test on my machine. I will get back to you shortly.

Okay, I finished much sooner than I thought. Any programs installed in Program Files and Program Files (x86) will also be installed in any other accounts. The programs you installed just for your user account will need to be reinstalled.
