I have inherited a pc, with two partitions, one running xp home (in English),which is on the D drive, and xp pro (in Spanish) is on the C drive. How do i get rid of the Spanish installation, which has the administrative rights, therefore access to the C drive, control panel, system tools, run, search, etc is access denied, I have no administrator password.

If i can get rid of the Spanish version, what is the best way to use the rest of the partition ie, system files on one drive and documents etc on the other.

ps. i am not a techie
