<hr>My next move will be to run the "control userpasswords2" command line and see if I can delete the profile/account that way... IF <-------- that is recommended.<hr>I would first find out what XP edition it's running, Then find the Administrator account.
After that, if you have to work with the accounts, it can be done from either the Administrator account or the "Librarian" (member of the admin. group), as you know.
I understand it was moved, nothing more nor less, you were the one who said you upgraded the RAM (i.e. as I said "small modifications"). But since no install of the OS, it is essential to find the Administrator account and its PW.
"I do know which account's profile I removed from the "CP/System/Advanced/User Accounts" list ..."
Yes, I said you knew it was called Steve, but you hadn't located all accounts. And you went to CP/System/Advanced/User Profiles; not "...Advanced/User Accounts".
In the first post you also mixed talk about accounts and user profiles. Different tries of deleting an account:
"... there was no option to delete it. So, I went into "System/Advanced/User Profiles" and deleted the account there."
You don't delete accounts in User Profiles.
As to removing passwords on an account before deleting; not necessary. Another thing to do before, if one like, that MS mention as a general good idea is to disable the account first, and if no problem then delete it.
