You need to go to control panel/performance and maintenance/administrative tools/computer management/local users and groups/users.

You will see a list of the user accounts which are active and inactive. You can delete and add at you leisure.

Have fun.

You kids and your GUI's. Go to a command prompt and type:

Or just go to Start, click your image (mine is the airplane, duh!) click home, then click the user account you want to delete, and then delete.
