    I deleted it in the Registry, but found it in one more spot, but that location will not allow me to delete it. It appears that may be the issue... Its the 1012 file, and it gives me the error Cannot delete XXXXXXX: Error while deleting Key

    So I found a program that left me remove the registry keys, I searched the registry and removed everything that came up. Upon restart it re-appeared..... in netplwiz, but not in searching in the registry now.

    How would I find out if the account had files in the WMP library? That might make sense because I had created it to use with the xbox glass app, then decided not to use the xbox app... Maybe I should delete the xbox glass app?

    If the user didn't show up in the registry under "profile list" then how could you delete it?

    You might want to check in the Windows Credential Manager in the Control Panel.

    This seemed to work for some: Edit = see the answer by GregoYatzee
    Cannot delete library in Windows Media Player 12 - Microsoft Community

    I don't use WMP except for PGS subtitle support for HD videos, and never for sharing so I'm not familiar with the library and other features.

    It was always there, it just did not have the correct name associated with the account, I read elswhere to compare the profile list to another location (Don't recall where at the moment) and the one that did not exist in both places was the culprut. So I deleted it and all instances in the registry. It did not affect any other users, or anything with the machine, but the user did pop back up on rebooting the machine, yet all references in the registry are stil gone.

    I figured the user had to be where I said it was but I have no idea if someone changed the profile the user is associated with.

    Did you check Windows credentials manager to see if the user is there?

    Yes, you were correct, it was just difficult to find, Microsoft sure has a way to make it difficult....
    Where/How do I check the windows credential manager?
    Thanks Again, baby steps but in the end I hope to get this pesky little problem resolved, I know it's not affecting anything - but it's just really annoying.
    I did also note one time that it did not pop up right away on reboot, it took a little time, not a long time, but 30 seconds or so past when the computer was usable enough to run netplwiz.

    Make no mistake this easily qualifies as the F up of the century on Msoft's behalf. In my opinion the second that user is removed then every credential and registry entry also needs to be removed automatically but that certainly isn't the case.

    I'm still not sure if you checked if the User is a member of a User Group via the Computer Management for Users and Groups, I hope I do not need to show you where this is located as well because it shows up under "Computer Management".

    I realize this isn't a real problem other than it just bugs you and it would bug me as well so I get where you are coming from.

    Ok the credential manager is located in the Control panel "large icons" second row from the left, second one down, Windows credentials is the one you want. Check for the name there, If it shows up then remove it.

    There could also be some of the old C:\Users folder from this particular user remaining someplace on the system.

    OK, I checked the credential manager, nothing was there, but there were 2 xbox smartglass accounts listed, I removed them both, removed in netplwiz, restarted and its back....

    If the computer management you mentioned is in System Properties, Advanced then User Profiles then I checked and it is not there.

    Another note, it does not reappear if I log out of an account and back in, or log into another account ONLY on a Reboot
