Ok here is the deal.. I'm new here so bare with me please.. I am running Windows Xp home, with sp2 updates installed on a 1.1g compaq. I bought the computer from a friend and when i go to c:\documents and settings\ ....the user name is listed as the previous owners name, not that big of a problem. When i log onto windows it also says someone else's name...not that big of a deal. My problem is when i try to go to: start\control panel\user accounts (to change them)... nothing happens.. i click on it and nothing happens. I started my computer in safe mode and logged into the Administrator account, went to: start\control panel\user accounts and once again...nothing. I have tried typing "control userpasswords2" in run\ ...that opens. I have created a new account, I just don't know where to go from there. Can i copy all my files from the previous account to my new account?(all i want is when i log on for it to say what i want...and when i go to c:\documents and settings---i want it to say my name instead of the previous owners) HELP!!!
