I have HP XP Pro SP3, about 4 years old. Had to restore from D: partition last week. In trying to reinstall programs I discovered I have multiple administrators, I think causing reinstall problems with Autodesk programs.
Administrator accounts:
Administrator
HP_Administrator
HP_Administrator.MEDIA
This is a single user machine, I have no need for all these administrator accounts and don't know where they came from. Now seems like a good time to simplify things.
Can someone tell me how to get rid of all these extra administrators and combine all that stuff in one place? Also need to know how to keep from getting back into this situation as I reinstall a bunch more programs.

Thanks
Jerry

If you have an HP system...HP put them on the system...via their recovery software.
