I just unpacked my new Dell Inspiron two days ago and somehow I have managed to create two user accounts. I found setting up this computer a little confusing and I'm still not sure how I did this.
The usual and suggested methods for deleting an account don't work (click on users and delete) . Did anyone else have this problem and were you able to delete that second account?
Thanks so much for your time.

You need to go to Control Panel > Users, and see what kinds of accounts your have. As mentioned above, logon to your administrator account (or the one you prefer if you have two). Be sure all your files, etc., appear in that account. And, use this account to delete the other account.
