I bought a Sony Laptop from Fry's and it has a couple of users names on the C drive that are named Fry's and public... They are locked and I can't change the name. How do I unlock these or just change the name? I created a user name for me but now it has three users Me, Frys and public. If I delete any files or folders from the Fry's or public users it also deletes what I have in mine. Because all of the info is the same with all users names. Why is it duplicate I don't know. I don't see how or where to put password if it has one. It has W7 home Premium OS.

If the account you have made for yourself is an admin account then i would just delete the other two accounts.... Start> contol panel> add remove user accounts> remove the other accounts. If you encounter problems try removing them in safe mode (f8 at splashscreen)using the admin account.
