Hi Glen
I'm just shutting down for today and I'll be back late morning(GMT) Monday. Just a quick one before I go. There are two types of account, Administrator and Standard User. An account must be one or the other. The Administrator has all he privileges of the Standard User and more so you can't have a "joint" account as it were. Where did you see you had an account "Admin/User" as you said above " I checked my initial account and it stated it was Admin/User."

Hello mitchell65,
What I had was the account that is the default first user account with Administrative privileges. I must say you are convincing me I don't remember well, but I am pretty sure when I went into the Control Panel > Users it should me as the current user and it said Administrator/User because I then created the first standard user account and went back into the original account and changed it to Administrator. I may be wrong, so, I am currently unable to cognitively recall exactly what it said, but I am leaning toward what I said above, yet I believe you are probably correct, so..........
See ya when you check back. Have a good-un.

Hi Glenn
I 99.999% certain that you cannot have a user name with a "/" sign in the title. Try to rename one of your users by just adding "/one" and see what messag you get!

Good Morning mitchell65,
I tried and of course you were correct. Confused, not first time and not last. I will assume I now have a quasi-Admin account and two standards with guest turned off.
I am still concerned how the account named changed from Owner to Me without my conscious intervention. I know gregrocker and he stated that my current status for privileges under my non-standard account is prudent and a safe situation. And continue to run under a user account.
I await you time to assist further. Many thanks to you.
