Cannot delete win 7 user
When I was installing Win 7 I accidentally hit the enter key when entering the main user. I want to delete this account and use the same account I have set up as admin. I hope this makes sense so far.
I can find the incorrect user name in the registry but changing it or deleting all files with that user name only works until the next boot. At that time the incorrect user name comes back. There's supposedly a hidden encrypted file that's causing the incorrect name to come back. How can I rid myself of this quarrelsome priest?
Re: Cannot delete win 7 user
You can simply go into Start Search Bar and type in user accounts and create a new user account with full admin control. After that, login with the newly made admin user account and delete the main user account that you are talking about. At the left side, you can view a delete button to delete any second or third admin account or whatever user account you want to. Hope that makes sense
