    I have two accounts, one I named Administrator and one with my persona
    name. I checked in regedit where userprofiles are listed and there ar
    files ending in 02 and 03 and they list paths to those two accounts. Th
    missing 01 is probably due to the problems I had getting rid o
    test-testpc that appeared on my computer when returned from repair b
    the manufacturer. I know I could change the name to my own from Use
    Accounts in Control Panel but underneath it was still test-testpc on th
    hard drive.

    I changed the name of the computer and that stuck. I made the ne
    Administrator account but when I went to System Advanced Syste
    Settings, then User Profiles and Settings only test showed up an
    clicking on it wouldn't let me then click on Copy to copy its folder
    and settings to Administrator.

    I made another Administrator account with my personal name and the
    deleted test instead of copying and then deleting. Maybe I stil
    couldn't copy, maybe I was just so glad I could delete it

    So only the two accounts to log on, only these two in User Accounts i
    Control Panel, only the two in regedit (default and public seem to neve
    show, don't remember right now if Guest showed up, I usually do't hav
    it enabled.) In System Advanced System Settings User Profiles Setting
    there are only these two accounts. BUT, when I look on my hard drive
    under C:\Users there is an additional account
    mypersonalname-mynewcomputer name, i.e. in addition to Administrator an
    Anita, there is Anita-TheII. My computer's name is TheII. I delet
    Anita-TheII, but it keeps coming back.How do I get rid of it?

    And, oh yes, despite all this when I install Office, in the setup inf
    under my personal name is...test. So test is still lurking somewhere
    How do I delete his remnants

    I am running Vista Home Premium 64 bit
