Duplicate Administrator Files


I have the problem of duplicate administrator uner the name "T", which resulted from a error when first creating a user file. Obviously being the first file it was an administraor account.

I couldn't erase it, so I created another administrator file "T_Woodie". Now I have two files each, in these categories:





*My Documents

*My Music

*My Videos

*My Pictures

*Saved Games


I tried deleting each administrator, but it makse all my destop programs disappear. I know enough to be "dangeorus". Can someone tell me how to correct this situation please?

I simply want to eliminate the "T" administrator, however it is the on administrator with the "lock symbol" on the folder.

Try booting into safe mode with the built in admin account, and removing the troubled accounts and files.
