If it is possible to reconfigure WinXP (home or Pro) so there is only a single user, the "all-powerful" one, how is that done? I am the only real user, and my new machine has very little stuff on it, all replacable. I see that XP has the "Administrator" or "Owner" mode, which surely resembles what I intend to have as the sole and single subset of the OS. It also has "default user", and perhaps others, which were present when purchased. I have not created nor configured any of those modes or users.
So the basic questions are:
Is it acceptable to remove all those other "modes", leaving only the "Admin" mode?
If so, then may that mode be renamed?
Recognizing references to hacker-protection, are there other factors to consider?
