Hello everyone,

I am having trouble deleting an extra administrator account I created using the Ultimate Boot Disk for Windows and a program used password renew. In the past, I have never had this problem occur. There are two accounts on the system, both administrator accounts. One account is original, and the newer one I created a few days ago. When I delete the account through the control panel-> user accounts, everything works properly. The account disappears and the users folder is deleted. I restart the computer, and the account reappears and is fully functional. I have searched google and this forum in order to find help before I bother you all, but I really appreciate you taking the time to read this. Thanks you.


EDIT: I cannot use the Management Console in order to modify accounts. The version of Windows 7 is Home Premium, which only allows you to modify user accounts through the control panel.

EDIT 2: I changed the name of the account, deleted it, and restarted the computer, but the name reverted to the original and the account reappeared.
