dir sirs,

i followed the 5 steps to delete other user accounts on my
xp proffesional pc but i still can't delete the accounts.
I can the full list of the account names but still they are
stuck in the list even if i press the delete button for
several times. I am the administrator on my pc and i am the
only user. What can i try anymore. Thank you very much

Greetings Ronny,

I assume since you're from NL that you're running the Dutch version of Windows XP? If so,
this is a known bug and affects all current versions.

If you haven't upgraded to the latest versions of Windows, you'll need to remove all the
passports by simply removing your Credentials file (all your saved Passports will be
removed). To do so, click Start, then Run, type:
%appdata%\microsoft\Credentials
and then click OK.
Then in the folder that appears you'll see another folder with a very long name, right click
this folder, choose Delete, then confirm the operation. You'll then need to reboot to see
the change.

Otherwise, the only thing you can do is use a different profile or remove the saving of .NET
Passports entirely by download and running the following .reg file:

You'll need to reboot to see the change.
