  1. I have an extra account called administrator that I can't find a way to delete.


    My main account is an administrator so I've no need for this one, and it's ugly to look at whenever I log in.

    Looks like this

    Yet I don't see the account when I go to the account settings in the system settings. I do see it when I go to the User Accounts settings in Control Panel, but when I go to manage the account, it has very limited options and can't be deleted. The other account, my main one, can be deleted and has much more options when I go to manage it.

    Can this administrator account not be deleted?
