As administrator,Go to control panel and user accounts, delete as appropriate. Hope this helps as I share your frustration with files akimbo! :0)

The point of setting up a user id for yourself is to help prevent you making changes that may affect the way your computer runs.
For day to day use a normal userid is fine and just log in as administrator when you require to install software, etc
This is especially useful for those with limited knowledge of computers

This is usually because no password has been set on the administrator account, set a password and I think you will see the options of users come up.
