Who are you logging in as? You are trying to delete just the account named "Administrator"? Then I was mistaken, my apologies to rich, follow his tutorial.

I hadn't even bothered reading the username you were trying to delete.

Basically, they didn't "create a new administrator" account on your PC, they simply activated the hidden one.

No apology necessary, that is how the forum works. We all give our opinion and the OP choses the one he prefers.

Want to know how I learned these tricks: simple. The best way to learn is to teach. The first time I came to the forum was to get help from Zigzag, I havelearned a lot from teaching and the great tutorials from Brink
