Can't delete user account in XP
I am here at a mate's pc, and looking at his security on here, and I notice he has another user account on here which is no longer used. I tried to look for the disable box like you get on windows 2000 but could only find delete account. When I questioned him about it, he said that all files on that account can go, but when I tried to delete it, it just hung.
How can I delete this account, or at least disable it? Is this a commonly known issue.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

it works on XP home and pro
use it to make users go through the crtl alt del sequence for logging on too

And Cider, I believe you have to type that exactly... 'control userpasswords2'
