    User Account (XP Home SP1)

    I would like to know if having more than one User Account will cause problems? Mine has two Computer Administratiors, one for Gloria and one for Gloria ( my last name). I found Microsoft Knowledge Base article 279783 which includes: Click Delete the account to delete the user account from the computer. When you delete the account, you are given the option to save the user's files on your computer.

    Since they both are in my name and I log in automatically, I have no idea which user name I log on with.
    If allowing both names does no harm, I will leave well enough alone.

    Thanks for your always splendid help.

    Gloria,

    You can leave the extra username alone, it does no harm.

    If you are using the XP Standard Start (not the classic), look at the top of the "Start Menu and you will see the account name that is logged in.

    If using the Classic Start Menu, then you will see "Log Off 'user logged in'

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
