    Deleted Admin Account's folder is still present and controls PC


    I have had this problem for a while and hopefully I posted it in the right category as there are many issues surrounding this account.

    When I first got my PC I created an admin account with someone else's email as I had been locked out. Once I recovered my email I created a new account with it and tried deleting the first account. Unfortunately, the first account folder did not leave the users folder but the account itself was gone as if it had been deleted.

    Problems

    1. Whenever I save or download a file I always have to save it in the folder of the deleted account which is in the users folder
    Deleted Admin Account's folder is still present and controls PC [​IMG]
    (the circled account is the "deleted" account)

    2. If I try and delete the clewi folder it then proceeds from what I assume to delete all of my computer files. I think this because, the pop up states that there are at least 5,000 items detected even though the folder is empty. Additionally, it asks for permission to delete the Jeremy user folder which is obviously not in the clewi folder

    3. Even though the Jeremy account is set as an administrator I need administrator approval for a lot of actions such as moving and deleting folders

    Does anyone know how I can remove the clewi user folder without deleting all of my files?
    If not, does anyone know how to make it so that I don't need to save all of my files in the clewi folder?

    :)

    Deleting User Accounts

    If you can access the admin account through safe mode then all you have to do to remove the other account passwords is go into User Accounts in the control panel and either delete the accounts or, I'm not sure, remove the account passwords.

    delete administrator account

    Hi,

    Method 1. Delete an admin account via Settings

    Step 1: Open Settings app by simultaneously pressing Windows logo and I keys on the keyboard.

    Step 2: In the Settings app, navigate to Accounts > Family and other accounts. If you are on Enterprise edition of Windows 10, please navigate to Accounts > Other accounts.

    Step 3: Here, you can see all admin as well as standard user accounts. As said before, the account which you have currently signed in doesn’t appear in the list here. For instance, if you have two admin accounts “A” and “B” on your PC, you need to sign in to
    account “A” to delete admin account “B.”

    Step 4: Click on the admin account which you want to delete or remove. Click the Remove button.

    Step 5: When you see the following confirmation dialog, click Delete account and data button to delete the account and all data from the account.

    Method 2. Delete admin account via Control Panel

    Step 1: Open Control Panel. Change View by to Small icons. Click User Accounts.

    Step 2: Click Manage another account link to see all user accounts on the PC.

    Step 3: Click on the admin account which you want to delete or remove.

    Step 4: Click Delete the account link.

    Step 5: When you see the following confirmation dialog, either click Delete Files or Keep Files button. If you click the Keep Files button, Windows automatically saves the data of the account in a folder on your current desktop before deleting the account.

    Good luck...
