Specs: Windows XP, amd64x4
Hello. I just moved in to my buddy from work, and decided to put a pass on my PC, since a lot of people go thru the house on weekends. I set up an account, gave it admin privileges, but when setup asked: "would you like to give that account access to files?" (or some similar question) I selected NO. When account loaded I couldn't get access to any of my files! The problem now is that I can't delete that new account, because it's the only account! I tried setting up another one with administrator privileges, but it doesn't ask that question anymore (would you like to give that account access to files?), so I can't get access? Do you know a solution, or a step towards getting access to files back? Please share, I'll greatly appreciate any help from you.

Try booting into safe mode and if you get a choice of account log ins, choose administrator.

Why would you give a 2ndary account (that I assume can be used by anyone) admin rights?

It's not possible to delete the Default Administrator account. Do as OTH says. And, ditto what jam writes as well.
