RemovingDeleting a Vendor's account
Bought this pc thru Circuit City and they have an administrator account set
up on my Vista 64 bits and noticed after I installed Office, it's registered
under them and not me even though I have an admin account and installed under
my account. Perhaps this is why my system acts weird once in awhile. How
can I remove this account without affecting my settings/system.

Thank you

Re: RemovingDeleting a Vendor's account
If you suspect the computer may have been tampered with prior to your
purchase, wipe it clean and restore the system to factory state. That's the
only way you can be sure.

It was probably a floor model, not a machine that was secretly
"tampered with". In case you missed it, Circuit City just completed a
going-out-of-business clearance.
