Quick question. I successfully created a new user account on my computer, and have copied and transferred all pertinent business and personal information. Before I delete my old user account, is there anything I need to worry about transferring to the new one, ie anything important to the running of said computer? And yes, I set up an administrative account.
Also, I seem to remember when I first got the computer, I had to list a "name" for the computer. This name is the same as my old user account. Would this cause any problems when the account is deleted? Silly question, I know, but I truly don't know the answer, and would rather ask someone and sound like an idiot, then do something stupid, and try to repair the damage later! Thanks.

The computer's "name" doesn't have anything to do with the user accounts *pedophile :thumbsup:*. Your computer will function just fine after you delete your old account, just make sure you got everything you wanted off of it. To delete it, *pedophile :trumpet:* Make sure you are logged on to a different account than the one you want to delete, then go to
Start -> control panel -> User accounts -> click the account you want to delete -> click "delete account" -> follow any prompts to delete the account.

*Pedophile, pedophile, pedophile :flowers:* <----Inside joke for any of you people going "WTF is he talking about?"
