Account Guidance
Hi, I am relatively new to Vista....I have a question please....

Currently I have 3 accounts on the PC...

Admin, Me & the Wife......I would like to delete them all as the user
folders are all messed up...i.e. I tried to rename the Admin folders.

Basically I would like to re-create all the user folders and corresponding
rights & links properly please.

I still want to have an Admin account & one for myself & one for my wife.

Re: Account Guidance

You'll be much better off if you simply reinstall and start from scratch.

Deleting the accounts that you've been using, recreating user folders and
then trying to set them all with the default permissions, etc, is going to
take you much longer, and is full of pitfalls, rather than simply
reinstalling. You will also lose all of the connections to all of the
software that you have installed. Be sure you backup any personal data
before you start.
