Too Many Users!
After I became more familiar with Vista, I decided to add myself as a
regular user and only use the Administrator user as
required. However, I was unable to transfer my programmes, files, etc to the
new ordinary user so I simply made my old
Administrator User my regular user and made my new User the
Administrator.This appears to work well.

However, while doing this I accidently created another user under the
regular user by renaming it. As a result, User, XXXX X XXXX has users
named JohnM and John M XXXX. Both show up in c:\users\ I have tried to
eliminate one of them since my files have a tendency to
end up randomly in one or the other user. I have to be very careful when
saving files as to their destination.

I would like to consolidate the two sets of files and I need to know how. I
also need to know how to get rid of the second user.

Is there a way to eliminate one of the these two users?

Thanks

johnreid
