When checking folder properties/security tab I noticed that there are 2 unknown user accounts in the control panel. These were probably created when I tried to take possession of a folder (Skype) that I was having trouble deleting. I changed permissions for the particular folder, at one point adding an account with administrator privileges. Want to delete these accounts, but am concerned that I might have log on issues. Would appreciate if you could point me in the right direction.

edit: nup, thought about it a moment, wouldn't work/make any difference.

 

Can't see you'd have log on issues with your current account if it is an admin though. Do you have backups... is always a good idea, though probably irrelevant in this situation.

 

I'd just do it...

Well...I'd like to know the name of these two "unknown" users/accounts...before I advised deletion/removal.

 

If you are certain that you intentionally created them...what TsVk! said.
