I can't access to my primary administrator account user.

Specs: Windows xp pack 2, 300 MHz/ 512 M
I created two accounts on my computer Win xp os, One Administrator and the another. My computer does not show me the two accounts on the login screen so I don't get the option to log onto my Administrator account. It automatically goes to the second account. finaly I diovered that the second user account type is adinistrator too and no way to change it limited nonallowed option, so it seeme to me there are two admin accounts. I need to access to the primary admin account so that I can delete some programs from c: partition from Add & Remove programs from control panel which is something I can't do it because it tells me that thelocation of the file it can't be found. my c: has just 2 Gbs size free left from 20 Gbs in my desktop coputer. What can I do to fix this?

Press F8 when you first turn on the computer should bring up some menu choices, pick safe mode...you should get the admin account then, you can use the admin account to make your other account limited if that is what want. With only 20g of space you will likely keep running out, I would consider getting a large hd.

300MHz CPU, 512MB RAM, 20GB HDD? Not a good configuration for running XP & why are you still running SP2? You need to uninstall all the useless crap you have installed & copy out all your important files to CDs, DVDs, or some sort of external device. Keep your system as lean as possible & make sure to use a lightweight AV program such as Microsoft Security Essentials, not Norton or McAfee.

Install CCleaner-Slim & use it daily:

Are you referring to the administrator logon that doesn't appear to show on normal bootup, but appears during a bootup in safe mode? If yes this is by diesign. Once another user account is created the original administrator logon is hidden in normal mode. Go here and follow these steps to show administrator account in normal mode: http://www.tweakandtrick.com/2010/0...
