Slow after XP home repair used

Had problems and only way to get computer going was to do a recovery from xp disk. Now have two user login and runs very slow.
Can the last user be deleted if so how? Also although all programs appear on desktop from original user missing short cuts, I have had to re-install some is this normal?

Any advice appreciated thank you.

Hi Bill, you need to be careful when deleting user accounts, but if you are sure, you can delete one of them by this method...

start> control panel > user accounts> find the one you want to delete, and before you delete it make sure that if it asks you to save shared folders or files you say YES.

Also it IS normal to have the shortut issue you have, delete the ones tht can't find the target, and just create new ones.
