    [#0005ff]Could there be some confision here between a User Account with Administrator privileges as opposed to a Limited account, and the System Administrator who's icon in XP appears on the Safe Mode logon screen?[/#000ff]

    sign in as the remaining administrator (the user that you will keep)
    click my computer
    click control panel
    click administrative tools
    click computer management
    click local users and groups on the left hand side of the window
    double click users folder
    right click on the user you want to delete (administrator that you will delete)
    Left click on delete
    Are you sure you want to delete the user? click Yes
    Restart the computer
    Once a user has been deleted, creating an identical name will not bring it back, it's permanent.
    There must be at least one administrator, an administrator cannot delete their own account. :bounce:

    If you are not sure about this, confused, don't delete the administrator.

  5. You can't delete the hidden Administrator account in Windows XP Home.
  6. Nor should you want to. The default admin account is there in case you screw up your other user profiles. It's a fail safe.

    Unless you are booting into safe mode, you won't see that default administrator account anyway.

    I'd be quite worried if that addition had been made to my Registry and wiped Administrative Tools off the face of Control Panel and I would be trying to find out what caused it.

    Perhaps the OP could confirm he could see it in Safe Mode under the Administrator login.
