Too Many Users

The picture explains my dilemma.

I am the "anyti_" user (which is confusing as I never chose this name when buying the new pc- its my server email registration account name?)

The others are said to be dangerous to delete as they may be part of an operating system. I dont see how this can be as they are just user accounts and not programs?

Is there a way to check each account and see what it is attached to or its internal files.

Nobody else uses this pc - just me so why so many?

Who is the administrator? Shouldnt that be me?

Any help appreciated....

when did you take ownership of the computer, was it ,13/11/2013 ,if it was then you are likely the Administrator acct ,
most users were created at the same time ,13 nov 2013,.as I poste in you other thread about the snipit tool ,right click the windows icon lower left on the taskbar and log out ,and then you should see other users to log back in ,choose the administrator acct if it shows up on the screen

the anyti-oo was just created on Saturday, so did you create that one .

You need Default (which should be hidden as it is in your screenshot) and Public. You also need at least one account.

The Administrator account can be disabled if you want - http://www.eightforums.com/tutorial...rator-account-enable-disable-windows-8-a.html

Other accounts (UpdatusUser, Default.migrated) if you are not using them you can delete.

When you setup 8 you probably defined your user as anyti_ as it asks for your e-mail address. You can't easily change it. What you could do is

1. Make anyti_ a local account
2. set up a local administrator account with the name you want
3. copy all of your documents to it
4. delete anyti_ user.
5. You can then make this account a MS account if you wish.
