Hi there

Another problem.

This PC has just one user, the administrator with admin rights. Control Panel - Users show Admin and Guest.

But, Windows explorer shows
Documents & Settings
Administrator
All Users
All Users.Wndows
Steve Neil

How do I remove the last two please when they dont show under CP - Users

Thanks in anticipation

Check Control Panel, User Accounts, Delete the ones you don't want. Ensure there's no data you want to keep before you delete the account(s).

Edit. Just saw they don't appear under CP.

Just delete them. The All users and All Users.Windows means that a screwup at one point and made another - so really they are duplicates.

Do not delete all users or all users.windows until you find out which one windows is currently using.

Dont delete any till you determine which one you are using.
Renaming a user a/c often leaves it under the original name in Doc's & settings

In fact, why not just keep em

The only one you could possibly delete is (allusers.windows)
