Deleting a user account in Windows?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Alright so last night I was messing around with ccleaner and deleting some of the processes that start when my computer comes on. Well I ended up deleting ctfmon which has something to do with my internet and wireless network card. I couldn't figure out what to do to get my internet back since I must of deleted something that has to do with my wireless connection. Since I couldn't figure out what to do, I created a new user account. That didn't fix it, but something else I did worked and I now have my internet back. Now the problem is that I have an extra user account that I can't seem to get rid of. Here is what my main user accounts screen looks like.







I want to get rid of the "try this" account. It serves no purpose, and when I have to turn on my computer I have to pick which account I want to use instead of the computer just loading up.

Thanks for any help!

When you click START, what does it say at the top of the menu? "Administrator" or "try this"?

If its Try this, then you're logged into that account and won't be able to delete it. You'll have to log in as Administrator and delete it from there...

if you are an administrator on your computer right click on my computer and select "manage" then "local users and groups". go to users folder then delete the users you don't want.
