Unless I am mistaken, you can log on as administrator, go to control panel, add remove user accounts. From there you can delete or create any account you want. I am not sure if it will allow you to delete the original admin account, but give it a try.

I really don't know as I have never done that. I just use the original admin account set up when I installed windows. Reading through this thread and some of the links in it may answer your questions. Sorry I could not give you a better answer.

Why do you want to remove the first admin account? (Just wondering).

As far as I'm aware, yes you can. You must always have at least one administrative account on a computer.

Edit: @Lee, in case the orginal administrator account becomes corrupted.
