    I need some help getting rid of a user account folder


    So, im using the windows administrator account, but i got another folder called default in my users folder. If i delete it, it will come back again. Is it possible to get rid of the folder permanently, and how do i disable that user account?

    Solved, its used for creating new user accounts, so its best just to hide it away.

    :)
