  • xp pro administrator account messed up?

    Hi, I'm new here so I hope this is the right place to post my sanity losing problem.

    If I try to create a user account using the 'default' admin account I am instructed to first create another administrator account. Doing that then allows me to create a user account (but the documents and settings is 42Gigabytes so is the default user account useless?) there are also a number of other accounts user and admin that cant be accessed even in safe mode.

    Can I sort this out? Its a standalone PC with xp pro media centre.

    Pleeese help me

    I'm not sure I understand your question. What exactly are you trying to do?

      Im sorry - guess my user name says it all.

      I was trying to create a new user to try and sort out a messed up user profile - I'd seen a MS article about creating a clean profile but got stuck at first base. There is a lot of stuff in my documents in windows/system32/config/systemprofile that didnt ought to be there but I read that I shouldnt touch files in there.
