You can delete profiles and accounts at will. The choice is up to you.
Doesn't sound like you need two of either in your case anyway.
Nasties also hide in system restore. Normally after malware detection, as part of the cleanup process, you should remove all the restore points. Depending on the infection, you don't have to do an actual system restore to be re-infected again.
