I have 2 problems with my XP:

1. Whenever I leave the PC for a long time I find it with a display of the
login - the icon of Administrator and another user "Guest". I click on
Administrator and I'm in the required state. How van I eliminate that?

2. I want to import a user and its profile from another XP on the same LAN.
How can I do that?

Thanks in advance

Create another user with a name such as Mandi. Then remove the profiles for ADMINISTRATOR
and GUEST (you should also disable the GUEST account)
C:\Documents and Settings\administrator
C:\Documents and Settings\guest

Concerning the PC with the profile you want to import. Lets assume the profile name is for
the account 'lisa'. The profile on the source PC is...
C:\Documents and Settings\lisa

Now go to the Destination PC and create an account called 'lisa' then logon as 'lisa' then
logoff and logon using any other account on the PC other than 'lisa'.

Now copy the sub-directory tree; "C:\Documents and Settings\lisa" from the source PC to
the "C:\Documents and Settings" folder on the destination PC.

Thanks ,
But I didn't understand the idea of removing Administrator and Guest
accounts. Is it a part of the creation of Lisa account or refres to my first
question.

It is for the first part of the question "...I find it with a display of the login - the
icon of Administrator and another user "Guest"."

You don't want to login as administrator. That account should be reserved and have a STRONG
password. The guest account should be disabled and you should logon as a new account such
as "mandi". If there is no profile for ADMINISTRATOR and GUEST then I believe you will not
be shown the multiple login icons.
