Xp User Accounts

Post by DoggyDelicious » 20-10-04, 8:31 pm

How do I just get rid of them completely?

I mean I don't have to sign on or anything......... but still I get my documents and settings seperated into my name and guests and shared folders and all that crap.
Guest accounts are turned off, so I don't understand why it does that in the first place :?

Administrative Tools >> Computer Managemnets >> Local Usergroups

Delete the ones you don't want

You should end up with your own user account, and All users in your Documents and Settings folder..

This is because XP has built in low level (Guest) and Administrator accts so you should just disable the guest acct, and set a password for Administrator (Yes quite a few peeps forget to do the latter :roll: , try it press Ctrl+alt+del twice at the welcome screen, enter Administrator as the u/name & just click OK )

Me, too...I'm soooo afraid I'll lose something I really want!

I was able to change my files from FAT to NTFS so I could compress 'em, but I don't think they compressed......gained very little space.....

:o ORIGINAL disks. And err check for updates, for drivers and shit

As for converting to NTFS, get Partition Magic 8, but it doesn't compress a drive, it's just a secure file system..... Only 1 out of my 3 drives is NTFS'ed

backing up is so much fun.........especially when you don't have a DVD burner :x

I think I might just take a hammer to it instead :)

External hard drives are sooo nice.
Circus City had a Western Digital about 6 months ago, $70 after rebates for an 80GB USB2 :woot:
BOO
