I have windows xphome edition. I am presently unable to access some of the intems in the control panel namely help and support and user accounts.

I am down as an administrator but notice that there is another administrator account set up under the user name administrator. Is this likley to be causing the problem and can I safely delete the other adminstrator account just leaving mine?

Go to Control Panel --> select User Accounts --> select the account you want to delete --> once open there should be a option to deleted that account.

If that doesn't work it... make sure you are not logged in, in the account you are tryng to delete. If it still doesn't work try changing the account type and then see if you can delete it.

Let me know how you get on.

Thanks, unfortunately it did not work. With a few other problems as well, I decided to wipe the hard drive and start again. Not something you want to do lightly.
