Hi,
I am running Windows XP Pro with SP2. Why can't I , as the administrator,
delete other accounts?. The procedure takes me as far as the 'delete account'
box and then just hangs (doesn't respond).
Thx for your help,
Mike

What specific accounts are you trying to delete? The two built-in
system accounts, Administrator and Guest, *cannot* be deleted.
